    advice needed on how to sync phone with mac
    I need to get a new verizon phone, but I do not want to have any data package (so all smartphones including iPhone, blackberry, droid, etc will not work).

    I DO want to be able to sync my phone with my iCal and contact book on my mac. I can do the sync manually (usb) or bluetooth.

    I do need the phone to have a keyboard, so I can edit/add contacts and appointments on the phone itself.

    If I need to purchase third-party software to make the sync possible, which software?

    Are there particular non-smartphone phone models that do/ do not have this capability?

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Unfortunately, Verizon has a particularly bad habit of crippling their non-Smartphones and it can be difficult or impossible to do this sort of thing without hacking them.

    My company issued me an LG enV2 and I was able to get it to sync those things, but not without a good bit of research and work. You'll find that howardforums.com is the place to find out about this sort of thing.
