Having had the very unpleasant experience of a PDA losing its memory 
(and with it, my address book and calendar), I'd say 
belt-and-suspenders makes sense. I had a backup of both on paper, so 
I didn't lose the info.

I'm still in the dark ages, using paper calendar and a simple word 
file of addresses on my desktop computer. When the Handspring died, 
it took my confidence with it.

But I can see a smart phone in my future, eventually, and might try 
again. Synching online makes a lot of sense to me.
