    Palm out of Action - Need Replacement
    Hi,

    My old Palm T has to be replaced and I'm getting a bit past all this high level techie stuff but I am looking for something seemingly simple which must exist somewhere:

    I would love to find a mobile telephone which I could use as a telephone (!) and which would sync with my "MacBook Pro's" Address book and iCal via USB. I feel that a USB cable is nice and safe; I have no faith what so ever in "Mobile Me" and other Cloud stuff.

    The rest I frankly couldn't care about: Emails, Internet access (both expensive and for me unnecessary), radio, camera etc.

    Would an "iPhone" with a sync program do the trick? Could I switch off the Internet/Email part of it?

    Thanks for reading and for any suggestions.

    I had and used the Palm T for years. An iPhone (or iPod Touch for that matter) is an excellent replacement. You can configure your use of it practically any way that suits your need.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    I'm a little confused. I know I'm getting old, but not that old yet. Almost certain I read this same post yesterday and replied to it.

    EDIT: And here it is.

    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!
