if you export them from your address bookin in OE as a .csv file to your desktop, then upload to your google mail acct, they will then automatically download to your phone - this assumes you have "sync data" turned on, on your phone

only negative to the above, when i did it, within a day or so, i got an email from google telling me 23 of my "friends" had twitter, facebook or whatever accts and asking "would i like to give them a shout out?", which means google had read my contacts list and compared them to whatever info it had on those sites

i didn't appreciate the obvious invasion of privacy - a lot of folks today think thats the norm, but .... for what it's worth

Hi,

I had problems synching the contacts on Outlook Express to my Galaxy via Kies. It tells me that Outlook Express is not supported, and that I need Outlook 2002 instead.

"Either Outlook has not been installed properly or the installed Outlook version is not supported. Install Outlook 2002 or higher and try again. (Error code :0x80040154)"

As a workaround, I have exported my contacts (straight from Nokia PC Suite) into a CSV file, and I am using the Kies importer (Contacts -> PC tab -> Open File) to get these onto my phone.

There is a crazy wizard where you have to map the fields from the csv file onto the contact fields - it doesn't really try hard to make life easier for you! Does anyone have any tips? I don't have Google sync or anything like that set up at the mo.

Hope my experiences above are useful to others.

Ok, so I did get all my details imported via the wizard. It took a couple of attempts. For my old school Nokia 6230i, the CSV file is pretty comprehensive.. there are columns like these, and many more:

"Title","First name","Middle name","Last name","Suffix","Job title","Company","Birthday".....

Most of the fields are not populated of course, since the phone didn't have features for most of these.

When I did the mapping to the Samsung format (in Kies), my mapping selections were (CSV -> Samsung):

"Last Name" -> "Last Name" (this is default, leave all the defaults)
"Notes" -> "Memo"
"General Mobile" -> "Phone Number2(Number)" <Mobile*>
"General Phone" -> "Phone Number1(Number)" <Mobile*>
"General Email" -> "Email1(Address)"
"General Fax" -> "Phone Number5(Number)" <Fax*>
"Home Phone" -> "Phone Number3(Number)" <Home*>
"Business Phone" -> "Phone Number4(Number)" <Office*>
"General Street" -> "Address1(Home/Office)"

*There is a little check box in Kies marked:

[ ] Select TelephoneNumber Type in person

This is typically undocumented If you check it, you will be able to select the designations in angle brackets given above (Mobile, Fax, etc). I recommend doing this, else the numbers in your Samsung while just be type "Other" which is unhelpful.

Once you've done this, you can import all the contacts. Then I suggest saving them on your PC in SPB format (via Kies, little save icon in the top left of Contacts | PC tab) so that you never need to do this again! You can edit and tweak the contacts in Kies then, before finally transferring them to your Samsung Galaxy.

I listened to Iron Maiden whilst doing this, I found this channelled my anger into productive energy

Direct sync won't work for Outlook *Express* - it seems Kies needs to have Outlook 2002 or above. The workaround I have given lets you proceed without Outlook at all (although it's a bit painful).
