To help solve this issue, Microsoft today announced its My Phone service that enables users to automatically backup contacts, photos, video, calendar, text messages and more from their phone to a password-protected Web-based service, is now an open beta. With automatic syncing and backup capabilities for all contacts, appointments, text messages and other information, My Phone keeps all things up-to-date and easily restores them should the user lose or upgrade their phone. To sign up for MyPhone today, all users to do is go to My Phone and sign in with a Windows Live ID.

In addition to this, Microsoft also announced the availability of My Phone service in all 25 Windows Mobile languages today. What’s more? The service is available on all Windows Mobile 6.0 or 6.1 phones and allows users to automatically upload photos and video from their Windows phone directly to My Phone, making it simple to preserve memories. Once users sign in they get an option of “Send to Phone” or they can use their phone’s browser to navigate to Home Page. And in just a few minutes they can download and install the My Phone application on the phone and activate it instantaneously!

With Microsoft My Phone mobile users can rest assured not only about their phone contacts but photos, video, calendar, text messages and more.

I have been using this for more than a month now. The damn thing doesn't have a "File As" option. So, for any contacts that I edit online, when I sync on my phone, it comes up in "Last Name, First Name" format.
