    I can't believe that I can't find this using search, as I'm sure it gets asked at least once a day somewhere on the forum... HOWEVER

    Can you sync notes directly with Outlook? I know that third-party apps allow you to sync the calendar and contacts (at least I HOPE they do). But I don't see anything about syncing the notes/memos.

    Any help? This would be a deal-breaker for me, but I REALLY want this phone.

    Thanks.

    Hey Sprockethead,

    Deal-breaker no more! CompanionLink's USB sync for Android will sync notes from Outlook - it even has category support. It works with a nifty little Android app called DejaOffice. Here's more info on your sync options with the EVO 4G - www.companionlink.com/evo4g

    Are you sure about notes being synced? Can anyone else verify this? This is a first for me to be seeing this info, everywhere else I've read about people having to resort to other 3rd party note syncing methods.

    I am on the same boat. I have tons of notes on my outlook. I have looked into Gsyncit. But still not 100% certain it would work.
    Through my research, from multiple sources, HTC sense will NOT sync outlook Notes.

    So USB is needed? I am spoiled with my Blue tooth sync to my BB desktop.

    Notes and tasks don't sync out to my new Evo --- Except for the cable-dependent CompanionLink, I haven't found another solution. I fear (loss of $40 and) lack of Sprint support with glitches if I rely on a third party sync function. I struggled through Intellisync issues for years to get successful palm and outlook syncing on several Palm devices. Was hoping for a cleaner (included) solution. LOVE the Evo --- but disappointed in the missing notes/tasks piece.

    I have had decent success at syncing notes and tasks with Gsyncit. HOWEVER, I have missed contacts, notes... when the setting is set to 2-way sync. To remedy that, I just manually set the sync to be one way. That is a pain changing the setting every morning and night. But this is as good as it gets with the Evo.
