By syncing your phone with your computer, you can easily access your music, photos, and Outlook contacts and email—all your important files—whether you’re sitting in your office or your doctor’s waiting room. Because you’re always updating your files, it’s a good idea to sync regularly.


Connectivity and syncing may require separately purchased equipment or wireless products (e.g., Wi-Fi card, network software, server hardware, or redirector software). Service plans are required for Internet, Wi-Fi, and phone access. Features and performance may vary by service provider and are subject to network limitations. See your phone manufacturer, service provider, or corporate IT department for details.
