Build Image(2010-04-27):
Hardware Model (on what HW this bug is uncovered):NB305-N410BN

Bug detailed descriptions(behavior, impact, etc)
In the unnamed network sync page, I can only have one sync acct shown at a time. Seems like it would make sense to allow users to list more than one account....

Reproduce Steps(steps,current result, reproduce possibility)
(1) open the synd app
(2) set up an acct
(3) set up another acct
(4) note that you have to switch accts using change or edit sync service button, instead of seeing them all on the same page and just selecting the one you want.

Expected result:
seeing all sync accounts on the same page and just select the one you want.

Possible root cause:

Noel, you must understand this is a core design decision of the application and cannot be changed after the code freeze. This is not a release blocker by any stretch of imagination.

We do realise people may want to sync with several peers at the same time (say a phone and a web service), but designing and implementin the UI for that is not trivial. Assigning to Nick as enhancement.

Also, until very, very recently it was a core constraint of the library that we just couldn't do it. As jussi says - if this is a blocker it will require a total redesign and reimplementation of the sync infrastructure and UI.

Right, Jing (my apologies if I'm getting your name wrong - hard to tell from the abbreviations used in the bug reporting software), and you'll also note that I listed the target milestone as 1.1.... I am aware, I just wanted to note it while I was in the window so I didn't forget.

Rejecting this issue for 1.0 as it's not a showstopper.  This issue shouldn't block the 1.0 release.

This is an enhancement issue. Move it to upstream to check. Thanks!
