One more victory. I downloaded Microsoft Active Sync 4.2 (latest shipping version), plugged in my phone, selected it from the Parallels Device menu and it synced. Perfectly! So for anyone who wants to know…yes, you can sync a phone that uses a USB mini cable under XP Home running inside of Parallels! It even properly identifies the device as “USB Serial for Wizard.” Wizard is the code name of the Cingular 8125 manufactured by HTC.
