    I really would rather not have to use Google to sync my contacts on Outlook to my Mytouch. Is there an app that does this?

    I am surprised this is an issue since Windows Mobile has doing this for years. I think even the iphone does this without needing the mother ship.

    Anyone doing this?

    I just got the mytouch today, the way you sync with outlook.

    In outlook you must Export the contacts from outlook and import them to you google account


    Export Outlook Contacts

    1. In Outlook, on the File menu, click Import and Export.
    2. Click Export to a file, and then click Next.
    3. Click Comma Separated Values (Windows), and then click Next.
    4. In the folder list, click the Contacts folder, and then click Next.
    5. Browse to the folder where you want to save the contacts as a .csv file.
    6. Type a name for the exported file, and then click OK.
    7. Click Next.
    8. Click Finish.
    Import Contacts into Google Gmail

    Log on to Gmail, and then click Contacts at the top of the page. The Contacts list opens in a new window.
    1. Click Import Contacts.
    2. Click Browse, and then navigate to the .csv file that you created in the "Export Outlook Contacts" section of this article.
    3. Select the file, and then click Import Contacts
    I hope this help!

    The Android phone (as I know you are aware) has a google back-bone. The cloud syncing is what it's all about.
    You're right: windows mobile and iphone don't need this.

    It begs the question: why didn't you get a windows device or an iphone?

    The phone is not at fault here. It's doing what it was designed to do and, for me at least, is very good at it.

    Companion Link on PC with DejaOffice on Android phone. Set DejaOffice so that it does not sync with Google.
    Contacts in Android phone are always stored on Google. Currently I do not know whether DejaOffice works with caller id or not.
