Or "Le Phone est mort, vive le phone"
I now have my 3rd C500. The first one got lost on a plane in May 2005, second bore the scars of a hard life, but died on it's charger last week. Although Orange got me #3 pretty quickly, switching phones isn't totally smooth
However it's a pretty quick process to set up sync with a server - typing in the server name takes about 50% of the time - then whoosh I have my contacts and appointments on the phone. Being without my phone for a couple of days was a reminder of just how dependant on that. I'd got the old phone to a state where it couldn't be upgraded to sync with the Vista media player, the new one has the upgrade, so that's a bonus.
