So I just got the 5s and I use Windows live mail. The calendar and contacts don't synch. Ok use google.
So I move all the stuff on my calendar to google and now they don't support that. The contacts are ok.

So I will go backwards instead of getting the phone to synch to the computer I need to find a calendar that works with the iphone and put that on my computer. For many the phone is their "base" for me, it is my laptop on my desk so it does me no good to have a dr. appointment on the phone that I have to transfer to the computer later on.
Anyone have a suggestion for me? thanks.

Apple and Microsoft products (including Google services) are in competition and rarely their products are compatible. That should be no surprise to anybody.
