Nokia PC Suite = RUBBISH
It is not like me to post massive rants, but over and over again the software that came with my N95 has been a major cause for annoyance. It all started when I went to update the firmware, the PC Suite told me to back up all my data which I did do. As part of that, I told the PC Suite to synchronize all my contacts, calender and text messages. A minute or two later, after assuring me it had completed successfully I performed a firmware update.
This took about ten / fifteen minutes and was followed by a synchronisation to restore my data. It was at this point that I discovered the PC Suite had randomly selected 7 of my contacts (my number being one of them) to save and promptly deleted the others (as well as all text messages and calender entries.) This was frustrating as the last backup prior to this was when I changed from my trusty K800i to the N95 and I was missing three months worth of new numbers (and messages etc.)
What happened today was inexcusable, I had just updated the Nokia PC Suite software (it crashed during a sync and in the process killed my Vista Calender backup of my N95 Calender) and connected my mobile phone. I then told the Nokia PC Suite to re-synchronize my calender entries which is happily did. The problem was, it arbitrarily (and automatically) deleted ALL my calender entries!!! This is completely inexcusable for a PIM utility which is supposed to be aimed at a business market as well. This post is a rant for which I apologise, but I am fuming at the moment.
