    Samsung are rubbish for this!

    You need to go to Menu - Settings - Memory Settings - Clear Memory.
    Select Calendar, Tasks and Memo and press ok.

    You should now be able to connect to your pc and the sync will work.

Mt htcp3300 connects to WMDC but will not sync. Using windows7 home premium

I can think of some actions to play with (in case you haven't already taken them, that is):
1) on your phone, go to 'Start > Settings > Connections tab > USB to PC' and toggle the 'Enable advanced network fucntionality' checkbox, i.e. it it is checked, uncheck it; otherwise, check it. Try to connect. Then, restore that setting to its original value and try again;
2) For security reasons, backup your PIM first (you could just copy file 'pim.vol' on the root of your phone to your SD card, to be copied back to the rooot of your device later). Then, delete the sync partnership, both on your phone and your PC. and try to set it up all over again;
3) You could try to uninstall and reinstall WMDC on your computer.
Really hope you are able to sort your problems out. Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further.

My f480 t has just ran out of warranty and the bat goes flat and the back of it gets way too hot and the screen makes terrible static noises when touched.whats wrong with it can it be fixed how much will...

The problem of battery getting hot - could be because something is shorting it.. I suggest removing the battery, cleaning the compartment and the battery terminals and re-installing the battery back.
As for the screen making noises, are you referring to ESD? Does it happen the first time you touch it after a while or everytime you touch the screen?

Moving contacts from outlook to a mobile phone

1. Go to Outlook and save your 957 contacts in an outlook file. 2. Delete the 507 contacts you don't want to synchronize to your phone and save your outlook under a different file name (e.g. Addr450). 3. Connect the phone to the PC. 4. Open Nokia PC Sync. 5. In the Nokia PC Sync dialog, click Synchronise Now. The Create Settings wizard opens. 6. On the first page of the wizard, select the PIM application you want to synchronise the phone with from the drop-down list. You can choose Outlook Express, Outlook 2000, outlook 2002 or Outlook 2003 as your PIM. Follow the instructions on screen to finish the wizard process. HTH.
