    Hi,
    I really hope this isn't a repetitive question; I tried searching around the internet and either found no solution that worked, or problems similar but not quite the same as mine.

    Anyhow, I just got an iPhone 3G last week and I'm running a PC with Outlook to sync my phone. The first few days all the syncs went 100%, updates calendar/contacts no problem. Then, this afternoon it stopped working. No matter what updates I make to my Outlook or my iPhone, nothing will sync. I plug in the iPhone and sync through iTunes, it says "syncing" but no longer goes into "syncing contacts" then "syncing calendar" etc. I even tried importing my IE bookmarks and got nothing. It almost seems like iTunes stopped "talking" to Outlook?

    I've tried playing with the settings in the info tab of iTunes, I've played around in the trust center of Outlook, made new data files, etc and I just uninstalled/reinstalled iTunes, all doing nothing.

    Any idea?
    Thanks,
    John

    Nope, never got it working. Any time I sinc my phone something gets screwed up in my contacts and/or calendar (usually small things like contact's birthdays). Solution? I'm throwing my PC away and buying a Mac.
