Despite already airing ads on prime time TV for the Samsung SYNC music phone yesterday, Cingular didn't actually have any available in stores. Why? Because of a manufacturing defect that rendered the phone unable to sync to your computer to load DRM-ed Windows Media files. Oops!

So yes, a phone that's called the SYNC had problems syncing to Napster and Yahoo Music, despite the support of such technically inclined people as Ludacris, The Pussycat Dolls, and those dudes who dance on the treadmills. Cingular says they expect the SYNC phones to be available today.

Sync or Not to Sync ...ah ..Cingular Sync does not connect

Just got a new Sync today ...like many users I need some assistance in getting started ... oops I brought my phone from the Cingular store so I only get customer service support Mon- thru Sat. (if I had bought from Cingular online I would get 24/7 service support) ...

Sync:

...it did not with Outlook

...it did not with media player

...it did not with media manager

...it did not connect to internet

...could not set up the modem feature

...could not connect to internet

...PC Studio would run in the background and cause nothing to work

...PC Studio Phone does not allow for imprt or export of contact info .. manual says it does

...wrong software for PC Studio was provided with package

... cover for mirco disk doesnot close to protect the memory disk from slipping out

... when powering up with phone connected to PC the connect just spins

Well .. the phone does dial out and I can receive calls ... so for my business trip I will use it till Friday then go back to the store and turn it in ... money back time ...
