As for My Phone, I guess some program that can auto-upload a PimBackup file on a schedule would be good enough for me. Does such a thing exist?

RemoteTracker can do the same & more. However, it's not bug free & you DO NOT want to start fiddling with options without reading up on them first (as in the "lock" command).

Looks like Funambol should work for me, although I may just sync to my PC & then backup to Spideroak or something similar like Dropbox.

There's also Google Sync, which I think is basically an Exchange server. I don't think it does anything with SMS, not sure if it can sync My Documents (containing a PimBackup file). And then there's the issue of turning your entire life over to Google, which I'm not really comfortable with.

As markthomson1404 said in other thread... The m:IQ Service seems to be good with Sync for Windows Mobile & Android devices for Contacts, Text Messages (SMS), Calender, Calls, Photos & Video and Bookmarks.

So over all seems to be promising (no mobile tracking though) all good so far. Also we can use MyPhone to get all my stuffs from MS and Sync back to m:IQ. We need to see how the sync is working for all supported components like 2 way sync for all components...

Cheers!!!

EDIT:
m:IQ Contacts Sync is not working... and I have informed to Dev team of the products hope they will work on that...

Are they also closing the service to people running the windows 7 phones that have it installed or are they safe until a new version is released????

today is the day. myphone will not synch anymore. 3 days ago I bought a cheap Android phone (Samsumg Galaxy 5) to try to make Citrix Applications work on it.

I will NEVER buy a W7 phone, not even the ones from Nokia (the phone manufacturer that I like the most - I had Nokia phones for over 10 years and my main phone is still a tiny nokia2630)
