    I am new to Android smart phones (I was a blackberry guy)...

    Who can help me sync my contacts, calendar, memos, tasks with my Outlook 2007?
    Is there a desktop app I can download?

    thanks for the help!

    the vibrant doesnt have a program yet that can be use to sync your contacts and calendar and task. but your information is being synced with gmail. and you can sync your gmail with outlook and that will sync those three things. you dont need to connect your phone. Just make sure you are syncing with gmail and then go to your gmail and go to settings. then select fowarding and pop/imap. and press on configuration instuctions. and it will tell you how to sync with outlook. there is also a way to transfer your contacts from outlook to gmail but you will have to create a csv file and search it. hope this helps.

    Have you tried Touch Down by nitro desk?

    Although the normal email app with the vibrant is getting me my out look information. It is a suck fest of an app though, as one signature gets shared for EVERY email account.

    I downloaded Kies software from the Samsung Canada website. It worked syncing with outlook. There is one simple step that needs to be done on your phone before it will work. Let me know if you need help. Oh and it is free.

    I'd like this as well. Why Ctruong just didn't post it is beyond me.

    Sorry for the delay on the response. I haven't been on lately. What you do is download Kies on your computer and have it open. Don't have the phone plugged in yet. On the phone go to settings, to usb setting,and select samsung kies. Then go back to the home screen and plug it in. Once it is connected go to contacts and there is a button that says sync with outlook. You have to do that with the calander also. It won't sync if its not on the home screen. I too have been a blackberry user for at least 8 years and I needed to sync my outlook contacts and calander. It works and the tethering works on there also. Another option is to use gsyncit It is $15 for each computer. I am using it now and it works fine. Everything I add in my outlook gets synced to google and my phone gets it automatically. I have tried it on 2 computers but don't have the settings correct yet. I get duplicate calander entries for some reason.
