User has a Treo 700p. I get him setup today remotely, and he says it's
doing nothing but lock up his phone. Odd I thought I have a few treo
700p users, myself included, and it generally works fine. (Other than
it didn't grab my initial contacts off my phone grrrr).

Anyway, I looked at my sync logs and said... Bob (not his name), mine
takes exactly 45 seconds. So it's not a long drawn out process. He's
let his sit and sit and sit, no luck.

Later he messages me that it's trying to sync all 7500+ contacts on his

Ummmmmmmm yeeeeaah.. I would imagine that's going to take longer than
45 seconds :)
