Beware of MyPhoneExplorer. It only properly handles the following 16 contact fields from Outlook. If you have data in any of Outlook's other contact fields, it will get deleted from Outlook upon your second syncrhonization. If you only use the following 16 fields, MyPhoneExplorer works fine.
1) First name
2) Last name
3) Company name
4) Home phone
5) Mobile phone
6) Business phone
7) Fax
8) Other phone
9) Home address
10 Work address
11) Email1
12) Email2
13) Email3
14) Web page
15) Info/Notes
16) Birthday

Examples of fields that are not synchronized, include "Other address", Business2 phone, Home2 phone, Assistant's name, & Categories, but I guess there are more than 100 other Outlook fields that MyPhoneExplorer can't handle.

Also, MyPhoneExplorer moves the job-title from Outlook to the phone properly, but then when it moves the job-title back to Outlook, it places job-title into Outlook's "title field". (By "title field" I mean where Outlook stores things like Mr., Mrs., & Dr.)

I gave in and bought gSyncit this morning. I've only synced my calendar from Outlook to Google, and don't plan to do two way syncing, or sync contacts or anything else, since I have heard of possible probs with gSyncit. That said, it worked fine and my calendar shows up as hoped for on my droidx.

I tried to sync the calendar several times with Google's app and was never able to get it to work. It seemed like it was working, no errors reported, it just didn't move any data over to Google.

FWIW I've been using gSyncit since October 2010 and haven't had any serious problems with it.

I -did- recently lose some appointments (recurring ones easily recreated) but I also just migrated to a new desktop and moved from XP to Win 7 in the process...the timing makes it seem as though something I was doing with my computers may have caused the problem.

Default Google Calender Contacts for Birthdays

My Google Calendar and Motorola Droid phone syncs fine for events, etc. But when I input a birthday on my Google Contacts, it does not show up on my phone, only the first time I did it. When adding more, does not work. Can't figure out what I am doing wrong...

Just in case anybody reads this old thread, we no longer need 3rd party software to synchronize Outlook contacts, calendar, & email. The new solution follows.

We can now synchronize Outlook & Android without a 3rd party app or Exchange Server!

I have a good solution for contact syncs. What I do is this: I let my android sync contacts with gmail, I connected my gmail to soocial.com, an online address book solution (disclaimer: I work there, but this is really how I use it) Then I added more connections from Soocial to all my other devices which is a computer at work, my laptop, my pc at home.

While the above may be issues for some people, I highly recommend giving MyPhoneExplorer a try. I have been using MyPhoneExplorer 1.8.1 to sync my android based MyTouch 4G with Outlook Calendar and Contacts on my computer using USB cable with no issues. If you're like me, you probably will never use any contact fields other than the 16 above, so you should be fine. Plus, this is a FREE program! The 2 things you need are MyPhoneExplorer on your computer and MyPhoneExplorer Client app on your android phone.

Remember that the default calendar entry type on android phones is google/gmail and google/gmail entries will not sync to your Outlook calendar. So, you just need to change your default calendar entry type on your phone calendar by going into your calendar options (when viewing your calendar, hit the menu button, select "more," then select "Calendars") and deselect the gmail option and select the "PC Sync" option. After I did this, I had no issues with 2 way sync btw my phone calendar and Outlook calendar.

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate & Office 2007. Sync to the Android & Gmail has never been an issue. It's Free. I just now, searched Outlook's Help section and found that they now have fixed their sync issue of past, and it works, once you install the app from Microsoft for the Connector. Once done, I verified my phone against my desktop, all is matched perfectly. I will continue to test entering appoints on one side, then the other. This does also work in Thunderbird by Mozilla, except they came out with an update that disabled their iCal sync add-on.. so the developer, I'm sure, is having to catch up for the avid fans. Truly, no costs incurred to do this.

I just worked with Funambol and it worked brilliantly. I have 2000 contacts and lots of important notes in my outlook with each contact and it did all quite well.

I am wondering and curious if anyone knows here.. If I have a desktop, laptop and phone.. how to sync all of them with Funambol?

Anyone?

Default New Contacts Sync For Gmail <-> Outlook: Gout

I am the author of a new sync utility for synching Outlook contacts with Gmail (and hence Android). I plan to get Tasks and Notes done as well, but for now Contacts sync has been implemented.

Gout is the name of the utility, and it is Free Software, released under GPL v3 license available on Github.

Since this is the first post I am unable to give links, but will do so in a separate post.

Talking 2 free programs for Outlook-GMAIL-whatever

Outlook4gmail to sync your contacts

googlecalendarsync for your Calendar

Both are free, work with GMAIL and you can set the update frequency, I use them so I could sync my iPAD and after I get my Mesmerize in a few minutes I just need to tie it to my gmail account.

Default Do above options allow exchange AND outlook PST sync?

Greetings,

I have shared the sync frustration of many new android users.
My question is this....do ANY of the above options allow me to have 2 syncs going:
1) a direct android native app sync with an exchange server
2) a google or 3rd party app that syncs my calendar AND contacts (at least ) and hopefully my tasks and notes from a local PC-based Outlook install (PST file) via USB or wireless connection?

I was originally told that Companionlink would do it but "upon further review" after initiall syncing all the exchange and local PC based data would sync to each other. I need them to stay separate.

The free google app seems to only syncs calendars. The google app that syncs calendars AND contacts appears to only be available to business users? So everyone that recommends to "just use google" does not solve the problem of syncing calendar and contacts/tasks/notes..... Unless I am missing something.

Someone had mentioned that perhaps myphoneeplorer would work but that has not been verified. Also, I have the utmost respect for the poster who notes that myphoneexplorer does not sync some fields, but I might be able to live with that if it does everything else I need.

I am willing to pay for a solution but it appears that NONE of the paid sync solutions allow both syncs to work and keep separate.

Thanks for any help,

i am a brand new droid user (was a faithful blackberry user for years) and i have been looking for something to sync my calendar and contacts and i finally found sync2 (www. sync2. com) sorry for the weird link, but i am a new user and can't post links. it syncs at regular intervals and also has the option to sync manually. it does both calendars and contacts, no usb connection required. the droid syncs to gmail, and sync2 takes the info back to outlook.

anyhow, so far it has worked for me, but i still find the whole thing lacking as compared to the blackberry's flawless syncing of tasks, notes, calendar and contacts.

just thought i'd throw that program out there since i haven't seen anyone mention it yet.

The only problem with googlecalendarsync, is that it only syncs the main calendar. So if you have multiple calendars, (e.g. meetings, classes, work, social events), they won't all sync.

I have this halfway solved. I use Outlook as a unified, single repository for calendar and contacts, so on the phone I "unselect" the Google Calendar and "Linked" all my contacts across Outlook and Google and Facebook, etc. This gives me Phone<->Outlook Syncing with the on-board sync. What is does NOT do is allow me to edit the data from my PC at home. I've set my work PC to "punch" the data to
Google, so at least it's there. I initially tried 2 way syncing betweern my work PC and Google, but I lost too many appointments and started getting double contacts, so I set it (GoogleCalendarSync and GOContactsSyncMod) to 1-way.

Calendar
MyTouch <-ExchActvSynch-> Outlook@WorkPC >-GoogleCalendarSync-> GoogleCalendar@Cloud <-GoogleTab-> Lightning@HomePC
^ Set to One-Way - it was deleting appointments!


Contacts
MyTouch <-ExchActvSynch-> Outlook@WorkPC >-GOContactSyncMod-> GoogleContacts@Cloud <-GoogleContacts-> Lightning@HomePC
^ Set to One-Way as precaution


I still need a way to edit Calendar and Contacts on my PC at home, and a way to "Merge" contact data (Google, Facebook, etc.) to Outlook Contacts....

Default Sync updated info?

Finally retired the 'ol Treo 700p and got a Rezound last Dec and made the mistake of installing the bundled HTC Sync app to my laptop. This is one of the worst programs I can recall, because of HTC but also Verizon. And it didn't do tasks or notes. It wouldn't uninstall completely and interfered with other apps (PdaNet, etc.) Finally had to do a restore from the base and rebuild :/

I've used Sync2PST for years to sync a local network .PST in sync between machines. The same folks now have Sync2 that is supposed to sync Outlook Cal and Contacts to Google but it didn't behave correctly for me. I am currently using Google's Cal Sync and it is working fine. So I'm interested in the experiences of others for something that does both Cal and Contacts. I actually prefer syncing through Google so I can use the phone's resident apps and I not important enough to worry about them having my data - and they are more reliable than FB, eh?

It's interesting to me that there is so little available to cover all the PIM info. I'm much more of a business than a social media user so maybe I just got the wrong phone. On the other hand, I love the HTC's screen.

Look forward to further inputs,
JRH

Really tho, the point of this thread is to find a good (and hopefully cheap or free) solution that will auto-sync both Contacts & Calendar between Outlook & Google.
I agree

Default Calendar Sync Issue

Guys, I am relatively new to Droid. I was helping out a friend to setup his Samsung Note. He had all his contacts and calendar entries in Outlook. I did a quick export-import of the contacts to his gmail account and the phone wonderfully synched the contacts, numbers emails and addresses. Wonderful so far... till I started to synch the calendar entries. Apparently the entries are from 2012 to 2030!! I exported the Outlook Calendar to csv file and tried to import in gmail calendar without any success. I don't know why this darn export-import thing did not work. Anyway, I started looking for other means and came across googlecalendarsync. I installed this on my friends laptop and it seemed to start the sync. It worked for some minutes and then when I looked at Samsung Note, I could see the data after I did a sync with gmail calendar. I expected this to work like the contacts, but I soon found out that the data was transferred only for 2012 year. I tried re-synch, refurbished Samsung Note et al but without any success. Couple of things which came to my notice:
1] Only 2012 Calendar entries were getting synched
2] There was some data loss (for some days, Outlook showed entries and the corresponding entires in S Planner in Samsung Note were missing)
3] This does not do a two way sync
4] When I get into the Week view and select a day, the events are shown in the box and below area, however when I click and get into that day there are just blank blue lines with the name of the task/event. When a new event is added directly through Samsun Note, the same behavior is correct. I wonder if this is a legacy data issue specific to calendar...

Can anyone help me out here? I have following queries:
a] Is there a way to seamlessly integrate Outlook Calendar with S Planner?
b] Are there any know issues with S Planner - Outlook integration?
c] Is there any other app I can use as a planner which will take all the voluminous data from Outlook Calendar and sync properly?
d] What software can I use on the PC to sync Outlook with Samsung Note? (preferable free software )
e] Has anyone encountered the same problem as explained in point #4 above?

Thanks

Seems like the perfect solution for anyone who doesn't mind having their contacts managed in the Google cloud. I just find it strange that no one else has commented on this product but Tamps. Anyone have anything to report on GO Contact Sync?

I tried it. And I got in a lot of trouble for missing meetings that Google erased from Exchange.

I've stopped even trying. This is really frustrating. I want one calendar, not 3. My N900 was perfect, anything I did on it was synced to Exchange and vice verse. Nothing "disappeared" without reason.

Beyond the calendar, I want only 1 set of contacts. I want to be able to "Push" whichever picture/avatar {Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, ...} I choose to Exchange, which I want my phone to use.


Syncing both to Google would be nice, if I was sure it would work. If I have 4 meetings in a day and only 3 stay on my calendar I cannot use it.

Footmouth sync contact

I recently found "moffice" for my callander, task list etc. added *********** for $10. and it syncs everything to and fromOutlook. only thing is, I have to plug my droid into my pc with the usb cable for sync. But, since I am at my desk anyway, it's not really that big a deal.

I wish Google Calendar Sync would work for me, but it only syncs with your "primary" Google calendar. Unfortunately, my work calendar is not my primary, nor can I figure out how to make it so. I want to use Google Calendar Sync simply to keep my work Exchange calendar in sync with my "Work" calendar on my phone. No can do with this tool

@FeloniusMonkey - is your work calendar on an exchange server? If so, the calendar should show up automatically (without having to sync to google) - or are you trying to copy your work calendar to google calendar?

The calendar application should be able to show multiple calendars on your phone (one gmail, and one exchange, and any others)

The problem is purely with my Google calendars. My "primary" Google calendar is "Personal". I also have Google calendars called "Work", "Social", and "Hockey". When I sync to my workstation at work, I want all of my Exchange appointments to go into my Google "Work" calendar. I suppose a workaround would be to make the "Work" calendar the primary (and "Personal" would become a secondary)... but I can't figure out a way to do that without deleting my Google calendars and completely rebuilding them.

I've had my battles with exchange and google calendar....if you can live with your phone being the one place that consolidates and shows your work and google/personal calendars in one place, syncing Exchange directly to your phone (and ignoring google calendars totally) is the way to go.

I keep Exchange direct without going to google and it is seamless. I can view my consolidated calendar on my phone and I can decide what calendar or contacts to add items to.

However if you want to see all of your calendar information including your work calendar on say google calendar while viewing it in a browser, that won't work. It sounds like this might be what you really want...

I use "set calendar colors" app to set their colors.
