    Hi All!
    Please be gentle with me.. my first post! lol
    I have just upgraded from a HTC Desire to the Desire HD. I bought it used from someone who has already upgraded the system with gingerbread. I attached the phone to my computer and all I can get on it is the usb file sharing option... nothing else comes up! I sooo wanted to put my outlook contacts etc on!
    Can anyone help me with this?
    Thanks

    Thanks for your answer. I am aware that the official gingerbread hasnt been released.
    I bought the phone from someone that obviously rooted the phone I am guessing!

    I am asking how I update my new phone with my contacts and other details from Outlook.

    Am I better off just putting it back to factory specs? If so... how??
    Is there another syncing program I can use to do this if I dont revert to factory specs?

    when u sign in with ur google account its contacts mails etc are synced....

    for outlook, one way is this:
    1) export all ur outlook contact to csv file
    2) login to google mail on web browser of ur computer, goto contacts, import that file, this way u have all ur outlook contacts into ur google account which will be synced automatically in ur phone

    As Saj says, it should still sync with Google

    HTC have been too lazy to provide a Gingerbread update for the DHD, that's probably why the phone was Rooted

    Thanks Saj & Russ.
    I went back to my HTC Desire and exported all contacts from my phone into the SIM and then put it back into the DHD so I now have contacts! YAH! lol

    Saj, I cant seem to export my contacts... when I go into the import/export section on outlook, it only gives me one export option
    When I go into that, the options are -
    Comma Separated Values (DOS)
    Comma Separated Values (Windows)
    Microsoft Access
    Microsoft Excel
    Personal File Folder (.pst)
    Tab Separated Values (DOS)
    Tab Separated Values (Windows)

    My computer is a windows 7 professional version


    Also when I try and sync the phone, it only gives me ONE option! The file sharing one. Is this because of the rooting done to the phone?

    Is it hard to revert back to stock standard, I would almost want to wait until the official version comes out!

    Comma Separated Values (Windows), this format u need to select while exporting from outlook , that will create a file with extension csv, u can then import that file to ur google mail contacts which will sync back to ur phone
