I don't understand why. So, you’re saying I have to put all my 4,000 contacts, from my laptop or desktop, with all their information, into the Cloud. So first can I assume that every single field that exists in my Outlook 2010 is in the database on the Cloud or do I have to do cross linking or mapping for those not in the Cloud. Then whenever I try to sync, the laptop and the Cloud and the Phone and the Cloud may be 1,400 differences that I have to go through because I put Spouses Name in many of my contacts, especially those related to reunion activities but sometimes business too. Maybe the link and sync on the Cloud is better than what you can get doing a local sync the way we used to do it in WM6.

How do we know how safe the Cloud is. What if by compromising another database hackers or criminals figure out my Cloud sign-in information? Or what if they just crack the Cloud's sign in info and get everyone's PW etc?
Why must all this information go out there? What are the great benefits if you aren't sharing contacts and calendars etc. We know what the pitfalls are and they are devastating.
