    If anyone has updated to 4.3 and the related kies3, you are probably having problems or no success syncing with outlook. What used to take me a couple of minutes was taking over 1/2 hour to sync, and usually just timed out.

    So I tried something that seems to let me get everything synced...I uncheck all but one of the options to sync at a time. So I do the calendar, then the tasks, then the phone book. The phone book still takes quite a while but is successful and the others only take about a minute.

    ymmv, but hope this helps someone out there until Samsung fixes the p.o.s. Kies3.

    Kies3 just updated today and my sync took about 2 minutes. It would seem that at last they've fixed things. Everything came over cleanly and I didn't see duplicates. Hope they leave it alone for awhile.

    Have you found anyway to change the direction of the sync for calendar so you only sync from Outlook to your phone?
