Syncing problem - Is this a REALLY BAD UI?

I can't believe this is 'normal' for a Blackberry!


Using the Desktop Manager, I sync my contacts/calendar from Outlook. The way it seems to work is (a) all the info is deleted from the device (9500) and then (b) all the info from my PC is then re-installed.


I've set configuration to 'notify if conflict occur' (but it never seems to).


But where this falls down is as follows - and, to me, this is BASIC BAD PROGRAMMING on the part of BB!!!


I've got Roxy in my contacts on the PC, and transfer that onto my Storm. All's fine.


Then I decide to add a photo of Roxy whilst I'm having a drink with her (she's very attractive!). I take the pic on the BB and set it to be Roxy's contact picture. Fine... can't wait til she phones me...


...until I next sync-up with my PC. As the PC doesn't have the pic of Roxy on it, the info of Roxy plus BBpic is removed... and replaced with Roxy minus pic.


Now, please can someone tell me I'm doing something wrong here. If I'm not, this is REALLY poor programming on behalf of the BB developers.
