I found using the software simple. Once you've configured your preferences, it works with literally the click of one button. Installation was a little more arduous. Twice when I was in the middle of it, a warning window popped up telling me: "There is no guarantee that this software works correctly with Windows." I was using a compatible operating system, Windows 2000, and phone, Motorola V60, so this is a kink Pumatech needs to work out. I went ahead with the installation anyway, and it ended up working perfectly, but more cautious users might not be as willing to take the risk. The verdict: The installation process could use tweaking, but overall, this is a great way of managing multiple contact lists. Any questions? Write us at toybox@prweek.com
