    I have a 9530 Storm on Verizon, OS 5.0.0.328. It recently bricked, and when reloading the OS it of course wiped everything. Because I do not have Outlook I have only backed up my device in the past (something I will now do more often!)

    What freeware or free options do I have for syncing? Don't want to buy Outlook just to have somewhere to sync/view my calendar, contacts, etc.

    TIA.

    You can do a backup of your user data using Desktop Manager and restore your backup to your device without any need for Outlook.

    Get a Gmail account and that can sync your contacts and calendar.

    I see where sync can be done on the device. How do I do this through DM?

    DM isn't needed at all. Just setup a Gmail account on the phone. When you set it up you'll have the choice to sync Calendar or Contacts or both. Just check off whatever you want.

    If you want other stuff to sync (like tasks and memos) then Outlook is needed.
