Re: I knew that there was a reason ...

Then why bother with a smart phone at all?

It's getting harder and harder to find decent "feature phones". And I've been using mine more as a replacement for the much-missed PalmOS/pda. I run as much as possible by way of USB or by temporarily pulling out the microSD card.

What would be nice is to devise a superset of the old PalmOS transfer protocol, and make it so you could sync everything to/from desktop applications on your computer. Would probably require an AOSP-based solution, to prevent Google's filthy fingers from mucking up or blocking the process.
