Syncing is complicated, and you shouldn't be too euphoric about isync
in my experience. My Wife has discovered that moving contacts from
her phone's memory onto the phones SIM card (which the Moto phone
allowed her to do) subsequently erased the actual contact data (ie
phone #s) from her OSX address book after syncing. Then she lost her
phone and Voila! Missing phone #s.

Sure, it seems appealing, but I think there will still be reasons
to worry about it.
