Very, very frustrated. This is the second computer I have tried the synchronization feature from, with a new Blackberry Curve 8330. On the first, I got the "unknown error reported" error, tried all fixes listed in (blackberryforums.com/general-blackberry-discussion/129689-intellisync-unknown-error-reported-resolved.html - grrr can't post the link because I don't have enough posts here?) to no avail. Now on this one I'm getting this not-connected message (on the very same computer I'm writing this from, so obviously I'm connected). Have tried every fix in this thread--uninstall/reinstall with auto-update left out, etc. (my registry does not contain the State key, so no luck there).
I've had this phone for nearly 2 weeks, and am about to start adding hundreds of contacts manually, typing what I see on my PC screen into the BBerry contact list like it's 1994, because the software. doesn't. just. work. Infuriating.
