    You can't sync with OUTLOOK? MICROSOFT OUTLOOK??? MICROSOFT OUTLOOK???



    :( excitement for Windows Phone 7 has dropped tremendously. Maybe I should get back to figuring out Google Calendar :/

    I set up Outlook to sync on my Sister and her husband's EVOs and it works fine. What problems are you experiencing?

    Sounds like Intervenient is talking about not being able to sync Microsoft Outlook with the upcoming Windows Mobile 7 phones...

    I got Google Calenders working, but it's not the same as Outlook for me. I really dig what Windows is doing with Phone 7 but some of these moves are downright unintelligent. Hopefully the Zune 5.0 software will support Outlook sync.


    I just want a unified core experience and being able to choose my hardware. Don't **** that up Windows, come on.

    Where did you hear this?

    If this is true, WP7 is a massive FAIL!!

    If I'm reading the OP's linked supporting article on XDA correctly

    How to Sync Windows Phone 7 with Outlook

    It does still sync with Exchange ActiveSync. So you can still sync your phone over the cloud so long as your companies Exchange server is accessible via the Internet and set up properly for this feature. The issue that I'm seeing in the article is that you can no longer sync email/contacts/calendar via USB using a PC sync client. The desktop sync client will only sync music/videos/etc.

    I'd rather reskin my Evo to have the Windows Phone 7 similar interface, without cutting all the functionality out FOR a Windows 7 Phone.

    WOW. This is one thing Blackberry users mention when they list cons of Android phones.

    No surprise here MS does not listen to it's customers. I used to be very pro winMO but the at the time 6.1 was buggy as all get out. 6.5 was promised and never delivered and when I heard that winmo 7 was coming I knew it was at least a year out...this was in 2008.

    What I see happing is MS paying carriers to sell their phones...kinda like what they did with BING. MS is not inovative, MS is not intuitive and MS does not keep up with shifts in the market.

    I ran windows mobile since the 2.x days, back then a lot of fields would sync I was even looking at syncing additional fields I added. Then with newer versions they started dropping more and more fields and features, it kept slimming down to do less and less.
