Looks like this issue solved itself. I'm not sure how but perhaps turning off the WiFi functionality on my phone and then turning it back on reset something. I was always able to sync thru my cell phone network. I only received the error message when trying to sync via WiFi.
When I try to sync, I receive the following error: "java.net.SocketTimeoutException. The operation timed out." Can someone help me troubleshoot this? My Wifi signal seems fine and turning my Verizon Fascinate off and back on doesn't help. Thanks.
