Thank you Sheinemann for introducing MyPhonExplorer. I agree with you this could be the best solution currently. I almost gave up on all the notes I've accumulated over the years from palm to symbian until I came across your post. And a BIG Thank You to FJ Software Development for giving us MyPhoneExplorer. Keep up the good work and give the Android community hope for the future.

Default Transfer of Outlook Notes to Photon

I exported my Outlook Notes to an Excel file on my computer. I then sent the file as an attachment to myself, and saved the attachment to my droid phone. I am able to open the file on my phone using the "Quickoffice/Quicksheet" app. This does not enable back and forth synching. However, I am now able to see all of my notes on my phone. I still input my new notes on my computer.

Thumbs up Solution to Sync Outlook Notes to Droid

I am a recent BB convert...just bought an Android Razr. I miss some things about the BB, particularly the virtual seamless sync with MS Exchange 2003. I live and die by my outlook at work...
Email
Calendar
Contacts
Tasks
Notes

So, I'm a super-ultra control freak anal retentive nerd and I have simple but detailed systems for running my company...90% of which is MS Outlook based.

So here's where I'm at with my conversion to Android
-Email...seamless, DONE.
-Tasks...seamless, DONE, INCLUDING my categories which was VERY important to me. Tasks are perfect.
-Calendar...functional, but the use of a free app called "Business Calendar" gave me a more BB-like interface. I'm going to upgrade to full version...nice program.
-Contacts...I have about 1,500 contacts, and they sync all the way up to 451...then frozen. So to get by I have exported to gmail and pulled them into phone which was seamless. The long term fix for real-time sync will be to export all contacts to file, delete them in outlook, import back in. the hope is that the corrupt contact(s) will be repaired and now the droid will sync real-time with exchange 2003. going to try this week.

This brings me to NOTES. I think all of us BB users can agree that notes with important reference information is important. I've read dozens of threads in forums like this will all kinds of crazy solutions for making notes sync with android. I think the old addage applies here..."you just can't get there from here."

So, I was very pleased that my android is syncing my categores for tasks and contacts.

I have simply made each of my notes into a task and created a new category or "tag" as android likes to call them and labeled it NOTES. Guess what, it works great. they are easier to manipulate and edit and sync perfectly.

to filter the view on phone...just go to tasks, just hit the menu button, view by tags, choose "notes" (or whatever you want to call it) and ta-da!...notes. Sync issue resolved, not even going to try anymore. converting to tasks saved the day!

If I get this contact thing resolved, and figure out a way to make this damn battery last for more than 6 hours, i'm golden.

Thanks for reading my dissertation...just trying to pay forward all the wonderful information i've gleaned from all of you this month.

Mike

Default Tasks?

So here's where I'm at with my conversion to Android
-Email...seamless, DONE.
-Tasks...seamless, DONE, INCLUDING my categories which was VERY important to me. Tasks are perfect.

Mike - HOW did you sync tasks seamlessly? I am new to Android and also use Outlook Exchange. I can get everything except tasks & notes to sync on my HTC flyer. Did you have a Tasks program on your device? Which one?

Notsure No Notes option in Funambol

Also, I'm just one of you, a former BB user turned Android guy and wanted to replicate my BB experience the best I could. I don't get a thing from Funambol or OI Notes, I"m just a user like you.

I installed the 10.0.3 Android Sync Client and also OI Notepad on my Motorola Triumph, but like another user in this forum I do not see the "Notes" sync option in the Android Funambol Client menu. I have synced my notes from Outlook with the Funambol PC to web client, but I can't even see the notes in the web portal. Right now I'm confused .

Hello Steve,

We have never had the option to sync memo's on the Android platform. It was something that we supported on BlackBerry, Outlook, and Symbian only.

gsax, OhmEye - HOW are you doing this!? Likewise, I "live and die by my outlook at work"... I would be thrilled to get this syncing!!!!

I'm running Outlook 2003 on Exchange 2003 - I created a Category called 'Notes'. I assigned a Task the cateogry Notes.

On the Android (Photon) I launched Tasks. Created a tag called 'Notes'.

But it's still not syncing! There don't appear to be any options to w/in the account setup to sync Notes OR Tasks..... I'm baffled as to how you're getting the 2 'talking'!!??

Thanks for your time & help!!

Smile How to Sync Outlook Notes to Droid??? EVERNOTE!!

I have tons of Outlook Notes at work and we recently switched from Crackberry to android.

SUDDENLY - I - WAS - NOTELESS!!!!

I was almost frantic!

I played around with this all sorts of ways from different forums, all of which were difficult and complex.

Then I downloaded Evernote to my PC and my Droid and it's soooooooooo easy.

Just use Evernote. Really....
