Switching back to 3...again
I finally got the slower than tortoise local wi-fi to work but it doesn't sync photos of contacts, which is very cool for when calls come in. What is really unnerving is that Deja is so SLOW that I just want to use iPhone calendar but cannot because the sync is one-way from iPhone to Deja. This app obviously gas potential. I just wish they had told me this was the Alpha version so I wouldn't waste time trying to make it work for my business.

Ok, but still needs a lot of tweaking
I use this with Time and Chaos on my Desktop. Til now I have used Companion link to sync contacts and appointments from T and C to my iPhone via Google. It works flawlessly. But tasks don't sync. So I was hoping this program would provide a solution. And it does in an unsatisfactory manner. My first thought is to have everyone at your company use DjaOffice. Then the things that need to be fixed become obvious. Here are three big issues. 1. The visual interface is very poor and lacking. I let everything sync to iCal and iContacts just for the visual interface. 2. When inputting an appt into DejaOffice I have to type in the time? Difficult at best. Use the native app and link the input field to a scroll wheel like you do with the date. 3. VERY IMPORTANT! Appts input into iCal do not autosync to DejaOffice. HUH? Everything else autosyncs. FIX THIS!! At least give me a program option to have this autosync on a timed basis. This program could be great with a few fixes.

"Not Quite Ready For Prime Time"
Did not work reliably to sync (using the Companion Link software; free 14-day trial after which it's $40) the calendar between Palm Desktop v4.1.4 running on a WinVista Home Premium SP2 (32-bit) and an iPod Touch (4th gen) running iOS 4.2. I was able to d/l my entire calendar (minus a few events) to the Touch (which took ~30 min), but events added to the Touch did not get added to the PC when sync was repeated with the correct setting on the CompanionLink software; the reverse seemed to work. The web-based "Submit an Online Support Ticket" (for Companion Link) did not work, and when I called to start a new ticket, the tech was little more than a phone agent who promised to send me detailed instructions via email that was different from what's available on the web site (which I already read and used), but merely sent me the same links. I'll probably try this again sometime down the road.

Used this app, along with CompanionLink free trail software, to transfer data from Palm to Verizon iPhone -- worked great, a great time-saver. DejaOffice Calendar has huge potential -- many capabilities the native iPhone calendar does NOT have (color coded categories for events, far better flexibility of scheduling events, better options for viewing, etc.) BUT it doesn't work! Often new events don't get added to the calendar -- they disappear. The view will switch from week starts Monday to week starts Sunday and not be consistent. Repeat events will show the correct end date in their edit screen, but will reset to repeat without end on the monthly calendar view. I could go on. This will be a TOP product if they fix the bugs -- but it's totally unusable as of version 1.1.7.

Over 1 month of trying, still not working (Ipad-Time&Chaos
I would imagine the only reason anyone would try this app would be to use an Iphone/Pod/Pad with their exisitng contact management software. In my case that would be ChaosSoftware's Time & Chaos/Intellect. Their Palm solution has worked flawlessly for years until they decided there were too many devices out here for a small company to internally develop sync solutions for (they're right..). They recommend CompanionLink, that apparently is suitable for many combinations of device & contact software. I still have an old Palm Centro for a phone simply so I didn't have to work with CompanionLink (Chaos's old sync solution still works). Palm OS is dead, so I bought an Ipad. Just want to get my contacts to sync (both ways) with it. 30 days later I still can't get the sync to work, despite working with "3rd level support" and "the developers" from CompanionLink. 3 weeks into the effort they come up with the "we're working on a fix that the next release will introduce. Be patient" Great. Also a lie.. Installed this "fix", no change. The only reason you'd use DejaOffice is to use ComanionLink with your exisitng contact manager and a device. It's poorly written, lacks basic features, somehow slows down the normally fast Ipad and WON'T SYNC! This is just terrible software and CompanionLink is a terrible company to work with. Sorry for taking so long to get to the point..

Insanely Bad
Either the installation instructions are flat wrong, or the product simply does not work with iPhone/Outlook. There is a walk setup walkthrough on Companionlink site but when it doesn't work there is no searchable support and they have the galls to offer help for $29. Don't pay until/unless you get it working. Even then don't expect help without getting slammed with more fees.
