    First off, I get the fact that I am posting on Mac Forums, but I wanted to see if anyone has thought of buying the Lumina 900 and if so maybe you can give me some advise.

    Ive been on the iPhone since the begining. I have an iMac, Macbook Pro and an iPad. Im getting a bit bored with the iPhone and really want to try this 900. The only thing that is holding me back is my contacts and iCal. I dont have a google account I have a icloud account. I set up a ive account and I understand that I can upload my contacts there. The issue is when I add a contact or a calendar event I dont think it will update my iMac and all my other devices automatically like it does now. Is there anyone in my situation that can advise on a work around?

    I have the lumia 900 as well. Unfortunately it's a pain to get things to synch.

    With my contacts, I had to synch my Google Contacts with Live account. You can't just download a .csv file and upload to microsoft like Yahoo or Google let you.

    With Calendar's you are out of luck (I think). I think Microsoft wants you to use their products like Office to synch your calendars (for obvious reasons).

    Thank you for your response.

    How do you like the Lumina? I assume you came from an iPhone?

    I have my contacts synced with gmail (had an android phone prior) and I had no problems syncing my contacts to my WP.
