Hanging Sync

    ActiveSync 4.5
    WinXP
    Win Mobile 6.1 and Win Mobile 4.2

    When I try to synchronise either of my phones, the initial sync takes ages,
    hanging at the commencement of the sync. It eventually will sync, but it
    takes about 5 minutes. it only happens on the first sync on connection.

    However, if I stop the sync, then press the sync button, it syncs quickly
    and properly.

    Any advice on fixing this?

  2. Hello,

    Are you synchronizing your Calendar and Contacts with your PC or with
    Exchange?

    I ask because the most common cause of this is synching a large number of
    calendar entries and contacts when synchronizing with your PC. If you are
    syncing with Exchange for these however, this is a moot point.

    Verify that your device is plugged into a USB 2.0 port on your PC (not a
    hub). This can impact performance as well. Also, it could be something
    with the actual partnership in ActiveSync. You could delete it and
    re-establish it and see if that helps things along (although the first sync
    will still be long the first time).

    Regards,
