Howdy, I'm brand new to the Android world and, in fact, don't even have a phone yet. However, I'll be picking up the LG Optimus S w/Sprint in the next day or so. All my information (email, calendar, contacts, notes, etc) are all managed in Outlook (stand alone, not Exchange). I've been told that there's no way to sync directly from Outlook to an Android phone so I'm looking for the cheapest way to accomplish that and have good results. My emails come through Gmail so that part is already done. I use Google's Calendar Sync program so my calendar is already in my Gmail account so that is also done. The contacts and notes are only in Outlook so that's where my main question lies. I've been pointed to the program called Gsyncit which seems to be $20. This looks to sync everything from Outlook to Gmail and hence to the phone. Since I already use Google's calendar sync, O don't need Gsyncit for that but if I use it for contacts and tasks, I guess I might as well use it for the calendar as well. I've also heard of CompanionLink but that's $40 and seems to accomplish the same thing. Anyone have any other recommendations that might be free or under $20? I'd prefer having this all done wirelessly but if there's a free way to do it via USB, I'd at least consider that option. Thanks for any help.
