New Outook Contacts on Android Won't Sync Fully

Question: New Outook Contacts on Android Won't Sync Fully

Microsoft have virtually forced Android Outlook users onto their new Outlook. I use Outlook on my Nexus 7. Since installing the new Outlook I find that the Contacts doesn't fully synchronize. It worked fine under the old Outlook. It seems to need loads of time to populate the Contacts file, and some of the details still have not filled in fully yet. Can anyone shed light on this issue

Preferred Solution: New Outook Contacts on Android Won't Sync Fully

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've had an Android for almost 2 years, and although I really love it I'm considering getting an iPhone when my contract ends (I have an iPod touch and just really starting liking some of the apps and user experience)

The only issue for me is I'm a heavy Google user: gmail, google calendar, google contacts, etc.

I love how right now I can add a contact or calendar event on my phone, and it immediately syncs to my Google account (or vice-versa syncs to my phone).

I did a bit of research so far on how this would work on an iPhone, and it seems there are apps but that you still need iTunes? Is that true? Or is there an app that will mimic the functionality I get on my Android?

I do plan to jailbreak it, if that helps any.

Thanks

I finally ditched Outlook for my emails and went with Thundrbird, which looks like a great program. However, I still have to rely on Outlook for the Calender and Tasks features. I looked around a little, and found Lightning, but the reviews where not completely supportive. And I would like to have it integrated in my email client, so Sunbird is probably out.

What are others using? Likes and dislikes?

I created a database in Access 2007. I am a relative newbe at this. One of the functions that I am using is a macro that Microsoft supplied as part of a Contacts table/form template to add Contacts from Outlook to the Contacts table in the the database. It was working just fine until I split the database, putting the tables on a server and the front end on my local PC. After splitting, it will no longer work. I have spent hours searching the Web and found 100's for people asking the same question, but no solution. Front and back end files are all in Trusted locations. Went back to a copy of the pre-split database (which still worked) and copy the object to the new split database. Would not work in the new database. . Saw some talk about using a temp Contacts table, but it did not give enough detail for me to follow.

Anyone have any ideas

Thanks

thanks for any help

Answer:import multiple contacts into outook 2007 from csv

Read this. Although for Excel it should work for any csv file. Map custom fields is fairly important.
It would have been easier to have created a pst file of your old contacts (export as pst) and then imported that.

I know there have been some posts going back over a year, but none of them fully solve this issue. For years, the best way to sync Outlook 2010(without corporate exchange server) to the windows phone has been to use the Google Calendar connector to get to their cloud and then onto the Windows phone. This had the advantage of doing two-way synchronization and working with the default calendar in Outlook (the existing .PST file).
Google fully discontinued this service on August 1. Microsoft does not have as simple a solution. The two options I've seen for cloud syncing are to use the Microsoft Hotmail Connector and to use Google App Sync. The Hotmail Connector does not work with the default Outlook profile which means than when an invitation is received from any email account other than hotmail/outlook.com it saves to the default calendar, and you then have to copy it to the hotmail calendar in order to sync. The Google App Sync requires a whole different profile with a migration which is an equally big headache or possibly greater. So, neither of these options work without making a lot of manual intervention.
I've been using a local sync program called CompanionLink to sync contacts, notes and tasks. It can sync the calendar but has a couple of disadvantages. 1) you need to manually sync calendar which is not good if constantly on the go and always want to have your appointments. 2) CompanionLink does not feed appointments into the native calendar so it won't appear on the loc...

Answer:How to sync Outook 2010 (non-corporate) with Windows phone?

Frankly the best solution is to sign up for MS Office 365. The cheapest plan (Exchange Online) is $4 per month per user, so for $48/year, you'll get seamless sync of contacts, calendar, tasks, and if you choose, email and more, across Outlook and Windows Phone.
Not free, but works much better than Google's App Sync, the Hotmail Connector, and any of the local sync solutions, and it'll work great with any other devices you add in to sync with (since everything supports EAS).

I just don't see any options on how to do this. It isn't that big of deal- but why on earth would you not be able to sync Outlook's Contacts with the new Contacts folder?

I would assume it does it automatically, but I guess not.

I see an Import option, but how does it keep itself synced?

Answer:How do I sync my Hotmail contacts with Google contacts?

Leave Google?
Or, you can "export contacts from the Hotmail" website to CSV and then "import contacts to Gmail".
Not sure if a live sync function exists. Outlook (hotmail) can certainly connect to Gmail, but I don't think Google can do that.

Hello everyone!

I have a question: is it possible to "synchronize" Windows 8 / 8.1 (but also possibly Windows 7) with an Android smartphone?

Let me explain: I would like that if I set a reminder with your smartphone, I'll be back even when I log on to Windows, a bit 'as is the case with iOS + OSX.
I know that you can not synchronize your Google Calendar with Windows 8, if not connecting to the google account to hotmail, but there is another way that you know?

It would be nice to also sync the photos you snap with your cell phone with the gallery of Windows 8, using Google Drive, but I guess now I ask a bit 'too much, however, a synchronization in Apple style is that possible?

I have no problem to "do everything by hand," but I was wondering if there is a faster way to do the whole thing ....

Thank you in advance !!

Hi - my Contacts on my phone are in a total mess and I don't know where to start. Ideally, I want all my Contacts on the phone.
I have 1) an Excel s/s which, in addition to names/numbers, also has email and postal addresses.
I have 2) a list in WLM which includes some Contacts not on list 1).
On the android phone, I have 3) Contacts on the sim card, on the phone and in Google, but some Contacts are duplicated on two out of the three locations. In many cases, the phone numbers aren't identified correctly as mobile/home etc.
None of the lists are identical. I've exported Contacts from the phone, but they are in vcf format.
Before I give up, what's the best way of having one complete list on the phone, including email addresses where provided (and possibly postal addresses?) And do I need to invoke Google?
Needless to say, I don't want to loose the lot! And finally, is it too early for a G&T?

I know I sound crazy but I am starting to miss Itunes. I had my MP3 folder with a batch of copied stuff from my main archive. It was organized for Windows. Most of the time Itunes was easy to use in that I droped the folder into it and made it my default folder so I could delete stuff from the MP3 folder via itunes it processed it and bam working very few issues. I never got duplicate playlist had some improperly removed mp3 files which stuck in itunes.

Right now I am having so many issues updating my mp3's and playlists and with duplicate playlists, empty playlists its driving me nuts. How do you manage and sync songs for android without a ton of issues? I was jsut copying the folder over but the dump way android handles files I can not use my windows sync programs. I got tired of it screwing things up so I tried winamp and it just had to sort everything in a horrible incoherent manner(album/artist folders ,ect) and that did not fix any of my issues.

Hi. Calm down! I guess you just changed from iPhone to Android phone not long ago? Once you plug in your Android, you should see a portable device folder where you can manage all the files in your Android. If this doesn't work, there are also many desktop syncing programs just like iTunes, such as iTools, Apowersoft Phone Manager, MobileGo, etc. However, personally, I would recommend you to use wireless apps like AirMore for managing Android files on web or Pushbullet for transferring files in a fast way.

So recently i got my OnePlus3. And this is my first device which don't have any external SD Card.
I love to flash new roms and to do new experiments on my device.
But the main problem with internal storage is that if you got brick you have to format internal storage and loose all data.
I tried to search on xda but everyone seems to be using cloud options, but i cant use those. bandwidth issue.

So coming to the main point.
I need something that can sync all my files on androids internal storage with selected folder in windows whenever i connect my phone via usb.

Rite now the only solution i can think of is a script that can run Auto/Manually whenever i connect my phone in MTP mode
and compare all files between phones internal storage and folder in windows and copy missing/new files to the folder.

Or if there is already an app that can do this.

Hi - the title says it all, really. I have contacts spread between the phone, sim card and Google. This means, of course, that depending on whichever display option I pick, I either have some people on three times and others not at all.
All I want to do is export every single contact into an Excel spreadsheet so I can tidy it up. I then want to clear all contacts from the phone and import them from my nice clean spreadsheet so that when I add a new contact, it goes to the right place. I thought I could export to an sd card, but there's no option to export as a csv file.
I've looked at lots of apps, but although some will export, they won't import and in some cases, the reviews aren't the best, so does anyone have a favourite method of doing what I want, please?

Question: Sync Contacts

The way I have my android phone contacts currently set up, it becomes an unmanageable mess. If I allow my phone contacts to sync with Gmail, I can end up with duplicates (quadruplicates, actually) of the same contacts, multiple phone numbers on the same line, phone numbers and notes/addresses on the same line, etc. I'm sure there a those of you out there that can relate to this.

It renders the phone list practically useless, particularly to voice calling, etc.

I don't want email address contacts in my phone list. Can I isolate a phone contact list group in Gmail, and only have that list sync with my android phone contacts?

The reason is twofold. On my computer I also maintain the "local" Contacts folder (not the "People" list) as a mirror image of my phone contacts. In order to keep the phone list and computer lists in sync, I can export the computer contacts to a .vcf file, and easily and quickly directly import the list into my phone contacts.

The obstacle with this method is that going in the other direction (phone to computer) is too inconvenient to consider if you have 400+ contacts. If I export from my phone .vcf file to the computer, when I try to import it to my computer list, It becomes a folder with individual contacts, only allowing me import "one" contact at a time.

Answer:Sync Outlook contacts

Hi there, welcome to the board!

Well, you could point them all to the same pst file. Or you could just export the data (File | Export...) on the main machine, and then import on the other 3. Not sure what else you're going for. The export/import is probably the easiest way, because you can specify just the contacts on export. But doing it that way will not export updates. On the other hand, if you did have updates you could do the export/import cycle again, and then on import just select to update values (do what you want with duplicates).

Got an LG P500 Android Phone. Wonder if anyone can help. Trying to sync my phone contacts. Doesn't work in the LG PC Suite ( have the latest) Will do a backup of calendar Pics Music etc: but doesn't see the Contacts in the phone.

Also tried Sync with the gmail a/c i set up in the phone. Again it syncs the mail and the calendar but not the contacts. All these Contacts have been created in the phone.

However if i open my GMail a/c on the PC and create a phone number there it syncs across. I can edit then if I want in the phone and will successfully sync back.

It seems to be all of the contacts created in the phone that is the problem.

Rather convoluted but I could EMail all the contacts in the phone as attachments, (only 20 at a time unfortunately) then Import them in my GMail on the PC but that can only be done 1 at a time.

Don't understand why the PC suite which is designed for the phone just won't work. Never had this problem when I had a Nokia and my Sony Ericsson.

HiI have just synced my iPhone with iTunes and mistakenly added work contacts to my personal contacts all 150 of them. Is there a way to undo this? admittedly iTunes did offer me to add these contacts but I clicked yes in error. Many thanks

Answer:iTunes sync contacts

I am just guessing as I don't have a iphone I have a 'touch' I assume that there is a folder in itunes on your pc for contacts, can you not just delete the contents then sync your iphone, which should remove all, then copy your personal contacts back into the folder and re-sync.As I said just guessing.

I have read the Microsoft articles on this but still a bit confused. I?m asking this on behalf of my son who is trying to get it to work.

If I have Outlook 2016 installed on a Windows 10 desktop, and using Pop email, is there an easy way to sync Calendar with an Android phone? From what I have read, it requires a Microsoft exchange server to do this, which I am not using as I am on POP. Also, it appears that perhaps it is only the email which can be synced, or if calendar is synced, it may not be 2-way syncing.

I?m not worried about syncing the email, just the calendar. I have found how to save the calendar as an iCalendar file and this can be imported into various Web apps. However it is a one-off import.

I can set up a gmail account with calendar on my desktop and sync that to the gmail calendar on the phone.

So I could enter each appointment on both my Outlook calendar and Gmail calendar, but that is doubling up. I may as well enter it straight into the phone, although using Gmail does have the advantage of syncing back to the computer from the phone if I am out and about.

I want to keep the Outlook calendar because it works with appointments received from email.

I?ve never had to bother about having a mobile calendar so I?m not sure how all this works.

I think there are 3rd party programs that might do this but I?m a bit wary of those not knowing which may be OK or not.

Also, I did a test import from my Outlook 2016 into Outlook.com by saving the calenda... Read more

I have two Lumia phones. A 625 (purchased 6 months ago) and a 635 bought a week ago.
I connected the 635 to the same live.com account than the first one.
Under "settings->"email+accounts"->"Microsoft account" the only content to sync is email. The contacts option does not appear.
I want to sync my contacts on both devices and want to be able to modify one contact or delete etc and that this change immediately reflects on the other device but this seems impossible
Could somebody clarify this?
I appreciate it in advance

Answer:Why can't I sync contacts on a second Lumia phone?

Indeed you only see E-mail but this is because contacts and calendar etc are automatically synced.
So it's actual the other way around you can not "not sync" contact,
Only for E-mail you can decide if you want to sync or not but contacts etc always will be synced.
So if you check contacts on your new phone you will see that they are already on your phone.

I have Lumia 920 and I have both Gmail and Hotmail accounts on my phone. Why my Hotmail contacts are shown on my Gmail when i start typing new message? I don't want all my contacts to be shown there and there is no way to delete them?

Answer:Why my email contacts sync between two different accounts?

I think the contact suggestion feature doesn't only gather its data from the contacts stored on the device but also from addresses you've already sent emails to. This works across all your configured accounts. No idea though why that bothers you much.

I have been using Google Mail to take care of my business and personal email and recently began using Outlook 2016 in order to work offline efficiently. The IMAP features are doing a good job of managing my mailboxes and messages between my desktop and laptop computer but I need a way to synchronize the ever changing contacts list between those machines.
Does anyone out here use syncing software or tools? I've found plenty but they aren't easy to sift through. The main feature I need is to be able to sync by way of the cloud since I'm not in a network situation.
And not to shame any companies, but if the software developer begins with a 4, that doesn't even open up on Windows 10 and I can't get a hold of them except by e-mail, which recommends that I get a hold of them.
Now, I have seen utilities that will sync my Gmail contacts with Outlook but I can't tell from the text if that's an ongoing sync each time I open Outlook as is the case with IMAP mailboxes. If this method keeps my contacts up to date using Gmail as the central store point for both computers, then I'm good.

It seems that Microsoft has done away with the PAB (Personal Address Book) file in Outlook 2007. I wish to sync the Outlook 2007 Contacts on two different PCs that are on the same network, so a change or addition on either one will also be reflected in the other. Neither PC uses an Exchange Server; they are clients for Google's gMail service.

What would you suggest?

I am signed into WLM using my hotmail live ID and working online. My mail and calendar sync to the cloud properly but contacts don't. Contacts added or deleted on cloud aren't udpated in WLM. Contacts added in WLM appear on cloud hotmail but deletions don't. Please advise how to sync (not import/export contacts). Thanks.

Answer:WLM 2011 contacts don't sync with cloud

Syncing should happen automatically if not immediately. To see the changes you made in WLM in the cloud you must reload the browser w/o using the cache. (Under Internet Options/Browsing History/Settings choose to check for newer versions "every time I visit".) To update the view in WLM close and reopen the WLM program.

Hi

apologies if this is in the wrong forum, cant seem to find one that fits..

Right here's the background so you understand

My new company has just given me a nice smart samsung omnipro PDA.

This has been setup to sync with the works exchange server via GPRS and download my mail, contacts etc etc

However, i am still with my old company for the next few days and on their exchange server i have stored in my contacts about 10 years worth of phone numbers of pretty much everyone i have needed to speak to.

Now im not leavng the old company as such the 2 of them have partnered up so i need the phone numbers of about 90% of them.

I access my exchange for the old company through Outlook using a secure HTTPS connection, this means that i can see and edit my contacts, mail etc etc.

i can only access my new company via an web based version of outlook

Ok here's the problem

having setup a partnership with my laptop via active sync it sees my outlook account and the PDA shows both the laptop account and the work account.

But if i sync to outlook on my laptop and thus get my old works contacts then when i try to change it to also then get my new company contacts via the GPRS connection, activesync deletes the existing contacts.

In other words, i cant sync both sets of contacts, as doing one deletes the other..

I am sure there is an answer to this but i cant seem to find it.

On my friend's Win 8.1 computer, he accesses his email [email protected] using Gmail. He also has a Windows phone and accesses that same Gmail account there.

On the phone it is set to also sync the Contacts and Calendar. But the Contacts and Calendar are not syncing. He claims that it used to work, and that seems to be true since there are a lot of contacts listed on the phone.

I've done some research and found that Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync is used for this syncing. I've also found that there is inconsistent info about whether or not GMail still supports EAS. Some sources on the web say Gmail does not support it any longer, some say they only still support it if you have Google Apps for Business. But my friend does have Google Apps for Business, I confirmed that by checking in his Gmail account, I can see the history of the billing, he has had it for almost two years.

Can anyone help clear this up?

Hi
We have a small Office365 subscription (4 users) of which one user (call them "A") manages the master contact list in desktop Outlook. The easiest way to "share" that contact list to the Windows phone of another user ("B") seems to be to add A's Exchange account to B's phone.
Contacts sync fine. However, I'd like B not to get A's email. Can I turn off email sync for that account but leave contacts synced to the phone? (On an iPhone, for example, you'd go to Mail settings and just turn off email for that account, leaving contacts syncing.)
thanks!

Answer:Why does my sync exchange (Office365) contacts but not email?

Hi Matt!
In this regard, Windows Phone works the same way. In settings > email + accounts > (account name), there is checkboxes for each of the following: email, contacts, calendar, tasks. But I see a downfall here that would also be possible with iphone is that Person B, owns the phone, they can go back into settings and turn on email later and get Person A's email.

Answer:Unable to sync email with contacts MS win 2003

Well the proper way to transfer Outlook info from one computer to the other is to export the PST from the old account, copy it to the new computer and then import it into a matching or new Outlook account. It sounds like it was not done this way and unless you explain in details exactly how it was done I am not sure we can help you. You should also describe which operating systems and versions of Outlook are involved.

After messing around with Exchange I was wondering about syncing calendars & contacts. I was wondering if it would be possible to have a calendar/contact list tied to my mailbox in which any changes to it would sync with all parts of Exchange (ActiveSync for iPhone, Outlook Web Access). For example say I add an appointment to my calendar in outlook 2007, I want to be able to see that newly added appointment via Outlook Web Access. Is this possible?

Answer:Sync contacts/calendars in Exchange 2007

That's the way it works out of the box. All of your devices (OWA, Phone, PC) are just accessing data that is stored on the server. At most, they have a cached copy. Whenever you update a piece of data, it is saved on the server. No matter where you are viewing the data, it will always be in sync.
