Synchronize Phone Data with a PC

Synchronize the Contacts list, calendar, to-do list, and email messages on a Nokia device with PIM applications on PCs.

When PDAs first came out in the 1990s, their killer feature was the ability to synchronize PIM application data between the mobile device and the PC. PIM data typically includes contact business cards, calendar items, to-do lists, and email messages. A typical synchronization workflow is as follows: the user adds and updates PIM data directly from the PC using the full-screen keyboard. Then, she simply synchronizes all the changes to the mobile device and is ready to go. While on the move, she makes changes to the PIM data on the device (e.g., to add new business cards, receive email messages, or update the calendar). At the end of the day, she simply synchronizes all the changes made on the mobile device back to the computer.
