I bought a Nokia 820 from T-Mobile . So far I like most everything on the phone. I came from a BB Bold and couldn’t wait any longer for BB to release BB10.
On the Microsoft Live Email settings list “Content to Sync” Email [only]. Whereas the Hotmail email settings lists “Content to sync” Email, Contacts, Calendar, and tasks. Why is that?
Why can’t I download tunes to my email alert tones? It will only display in the Phone tones.
Really I don’t want to sync to Hotmail or live, had I known that was the only way to sync calendar and contacts I’d never have bought the phone. I want to put a cord into the base of the phone and plug the other end into the USB port of my Windows 7 computer and sync. Is there any app or way to do this? I’d not like to use the cloud.

How are your contacts and calendars stored on your computer, do you use Outlook? What account is your desktop Outlook client connected to?
If you want physical syncing only I would probably exchange your phone for something else.

I use Akruto Sync to sync contacts, calendar, and tasks directly between Lumia 920 with outlook. I also hate the idea of storing data in the public cloud. Akruto Sync is not exactly a USB sync, but accomplishes the same thing - it keeps your data local, avoids the cloud.
