Hi not sure if u ever found a solution but I recently just upgraded to the KIN ONEm phone I also could not sync my phone with Zune and verizon even tried to help me by calling Sharp. But they didn't really help so the tech support guy said maybe u try googlingwindows mobile device center and going from there here is the direct site---> (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/953933) It shows you how to solve the issue yourself after two days of trying to figure out this phone i was able to solve the problem in 5 minutes with that site!! lolI I will probably call tech support and give them this site to help others!! Hope this helps!
