my toshiba notebook doesn't have a serial port and I can't use infrared, and i want to synchronize my outlook contacts with nokia 9210i communicator. what are my options?? :-? I can't be the only person in the world with this problem!!! I have no problems with the connectivity between the 9210i and the pc using a cable, but via infrared... what a nightmare!!!
Even if I manage to get Windows XP to recognise the phone, the moment I try and syncronise, the infrared loses connection.
I am running software v 05.34 on the phone, and have downloaded the latest pc suite software from the nokia site.
To top it off, the new system I have bought does not have a serial connection, so I am now out of options.... it's infrared or the highway!!

HELP!!!!!
