    Default Syncing your Rolodex w/ a smart phone

    For those of you with smart phones (whatever 'smart' means in 2011), do any of you keep your Rolodex (phone numbers + the names attached to them) in some application on your computer (which you treat as the 'Master' database), and download to the smart phone as needed to keep them synced?

    1) What application on your desktop or laptop do you use for your personal Rolodex?

    2) Is that syncing happening over Wi-Fi, BlueTooth, or USB?

    3) What phone are you using?

    I use google for everything because it automaticallyh syncs with my Android phone. Doesn't matter if I add the contact/calendar date from my desktop or my phone it syncs both side perfectly.

    ... where the two columns are separated by white space (one or more spacebar characters or tab characters) ... and just do unidirectional dumps from computer into the smart phone?
