HTC Incredible :: Calendar Syncing With Microsoft Outlook 2010
Nov 5, 2010
Has anyone had any issues syncing 2010 microsoft outlook calendars on their droid incredible? When I first set it up it was super easy and had no issues (i was on 2007). Then my work computer got upgraded to 2010 and it worked for a bit and now the calendar won't sync correctly. Contacts and emails have no issues. I get an error message on my calendar though and only certain appointments sync. I tried to delete the account and reset it but each time I did that it double up appointments in my work computer outlook and still didn't get all appointments on my phone. Now I am afraid to try that again since it is a pain to delete all the duplicates.
Me and my manager have an HTC desire HD, I use gmail for everything but my manager uses outlook 2010 to manage all his events. He's tried syncing with htc sync 3 on his laptop but this has put all his events on his phone one hour later than they should be. Also we have tried to clear the calendar data using settings>applications>calendar>clear data but its not deleting all the events .
I'm trying to run HTC Sync to share my contacts from outlook 2010 (beta) to the phone, yet HTC Sync tells me there are no contacts there. Is there any way to sync between the 2, or do I need to manually add them?
I am using an HTC Magic (Firmware version 1.5) and I am having problems syncing the contacts with Microsoft Outlook (on Windows XP). After I initiated a sync, the phone will reboot itself (after a couple of minutes, during the stage "Preparing data from your phone") and return the error "2 General" "No connection to the phone". I have done "Factory data reset" a few times. Every time I have done the factory reset, it will work for a while and then the problem will come back again.
In my line of work my office attaches pdf and doc to the outlook calendar and it is on a exchange server. i can see the doc but i am unable to open the doc in the calendar. i notice iphones have the same problem too since my job uses android and iphones. is it possible to open attachments in androids calendar or do i need to root my phone for this to work?
I just bought the new HTC Dream on the 2nd and am finally getting around to setting it up. I downloaded Touchdown through the market, but am wondering if this is the best app to sync my microsoft calendar and tasks.
I am needing help syncing my outlook calendar to my htc evo. i use htc sync, and i selected calendar, but all of my info that is on my outlook calendar on my computer, doesn't sync with my phone calendar, or at least i think it doesn't. do i have a setting wrong? can anyone help?
I just picked up the Droid and I've been messing with the Calendar and I found out that you can sync your Outlook calendar to your Gmail Calendar, which will sync to the Droid. So, when I installed the Google Calendar Sync app, it synced my Calendar items fine, but when those same items get synced to the phone, something gets screwy and it adds some of my repeating items every day of the month. I think I've narrowed it down to the Calendar items that Recur every xth (15th, 30th, etc) of every month. I don't find that option in the Android's calendar, so is it possible that this option does not exist? Anyone else have this issue?
Its my first ever Android phone, I own a HTC Hero. I have downloaded the latest HTC Sync and my phone has frimware version 1.5 and Kernal version 2.627-8dd6deee and build number 2.73.405.5 146733CL#61267
I managed to get everything set up how I want it but have a problem syncing the phones calendar with my MS Outlook 2007 calendar. Some of my seem to be missing on the Hero or in the wrong date to the Outlook calendar. The same happend with the contacts, but that fixed after snycing again. However, the calendar is still messed up!
Just got my new HTC Desire today and I'm loving it to death!
Just having some issues with syncing my outlook contacts and calendar appointments.
I googled it and followed these instructions: HTC Desire - Using HTC Sync
I used the HTC Sync installer that�s in the supplied microSD card to install but that didn't work so I have downloaded latest HTC Sync But when I get to the next step, "Setting up HTC Sync to recognize your phone" the instructions are:
First of all, step 1. seems pretty pointless coz you go to that part of the phone and don't make any changes. When I get to step 2 I can do what the instructions says but the phone doesn't attempt to find the HTC sync on my computer, it does nothing. I don't get a message saying its unable to find the computer, i can change the setting to HTC Sync and click done and thats all that happens.
Would love some help with this one, I've tried googling but can't find a difinitive answer to this issue.
Here are my details..
1.) Model Number: HTC Desire A8183 2.) Firmware Version: 2.1-update 3.) Baseband Version 32.30.00.28U_4.05.00.11 4.) Kernel Version: 2.6.29-3cb3dfbf 5.) Build Number 1.16.841.1 CL171554 release-keys *Running Windows 7, 32bit *Downloaded latest HTC Sync 2.0.33 from HTC Desire - Software Download
I have a Samsung Android that will not sync from the phone to Outlook Calendar. i have tried removing the corporate account, adding account from corporate calendar, unchecking sync and rechecking syna and I still cannot get phone to write from phone calendar to Outlook Exchange calendar.
I'm using W7 Ultimate x64 and had no issues with the latest version of HTC Sync and Outlook 2007 x86 - all fine and dandy.
Upgraded last night to Office 2010 x64 and now Sync won't see my Desire - any reasons for this? I've not tried another USB port as yet so will do so later this evening but thought I'd see if anyone else has got it working.
This is the full retail Office 2010, not the beta/technical preview btw.
I'm brand new to the Android world and, in fact, don't even have a phone yet. However, I'll be picking up the LG Optimus S w/Sprint in the next day or so. All my information (email, calendar, contacts, notes, etc) are all managed in Outlook (stand alone, not Exchange). I've been told that there's no way to sync directly from Outlook to an Android phone so I'm looking for the cheapest way to accomplish that and have good results.
My emails come through Gmail so that part is already done. I use Google's Calendar Sync program so my calendar is already in my Gmail account so that is also done. The contacts and notes are only in Outlook so that's where my main question lies..........
I've got a Windows 7 laptop with Outlook 2010 beta on it. Loving 2010, but HTC Sync doesn't seem to want to work with it. I've asked HTC, and they say it don't work with 2010. If anybody knows a way of making it work with 2010. Alternatively, I'm considering buying Outlook 2007 to use instead. Does HTC Sync work with Outlook 2007? I want to sync contacts, calendars, and anything else it might sync!
I have a HTC Desire (updated to Froyo) and have been syncing my contacts with my Outlook 2010 (running Windows 7 Enterprise-32 bit). Everything seems to synchronize well but somehow the "email address-Display As" fields gets updated in outlook, which then doesnt allow me to send emails to those email addresses unless I manually go and update the display as field inside my outlook contacts. I have manually updated all the contacts once already hoping that it may not be due to HTC Sync but when I did the sync then immediately all my Outlook email ids got updated.
Now everytime I try and send an email I immediately get Undeliverable receipt from System Administrator stating the following: Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients. Subject: test Sent: 14-Sep-2010 17:41 The following recipient(s) cannot be reached: email@example.com on 14-Sep-2010 17:41 None of your e-mail accounts could send to this recipient.
HTC sync programme only recognize and synchronize the PEOPLE who are entered under " PHONE " section while opening contact card.
I have hundreds of contacts appearing under " Google account section "
I can not remove them to the PHONE section therefore I can not synchronize to microsoft outlook.
I have tried to back up as VCF file by using HTC menu - Home-- People -- Import/Export to SD card ; it does 2 back-up file
1- for People section ( 33 people )
2- for google account section ( 348 people )
I tried to import this VCF file to the microsoft outlook but google account Vcf can not accepted by the programme only gives 1 person address card, in fact while backing up I have seen 348 people have been backed up. how to back up my people all of them to the microsoft outlook safely.
Just got a MotoG and i would like to know if it is possible to sync OTA the calendar and contacts between motoG and Microsoft Outlook. With my IPhone i can do this having an iCloud account, and with my blackberry trough outlook.com account.
I came to the Incredible from a Blackberry, and to sync my Google Calendar/work Outlook Calendar/Blackberry Calendar required me to export my Outlook Calendar as a .CSV, delete my Google Calendar, import the .CSV to Google, delete the Blackberry Calendar, and then run Google Sync.On the Incredible, I could not find how to delete the cached calendar until this morning. Just go to Settings, Applications, Manage Applications, Calendar Storage, then click Clear data. Then back out to Settings, select Accounts & sync, then click Sync all.Befor someone suggusts that I can just use the HTC Sync to cut the steps down, I cannot connect the Incredible to my work PC, and even if I could, I cannot run any "unapproved" software, and work won't approve of HTC Sync since they dont see a "business purpose" to it.
I am trying to decide between the HTC Desire or the Galaxy S and cant work out if you can sync your contacts with the Galaxy?
I dont mean as a one of import, but as in to being able to regularly do a sync between phone and PC so any new entries to are copied from one to the other? Is that possible, easy and robust to do with a Galaxy?
I apologize in advance if this has been answered already but my search revealed nothing.
Question: Does Microsoft Outlook need to be installed on a computer before that computer will recognize the phone so the SD can be mounted for file transfers back and forth?
I have tried to mount the SD on my wifes' HERO with no luck while its attached to her lappy. She does not have Outlook installed on that lappy. I do however on my pc and my pc recognizes the phone, allows me to Mount and Un-Mount the SD and transfer files.
I just switched from an iphone to the HTC Incredible. My iphone calendar synced with my outlook calendar. I need all the info from my outlook calendar moved onto the Incredible. I don't even need it to sync after that, but I need it all moved over. How do I do that?
I'm a proud new owner of the HTC Hero, I have a very specific interest in getting my email 'just so' on my Hero, and I made it work great. I think others may be in this situation so I made some detailed instructions that I thought I'd share in case it helps some people.
First off this is for those who (but not limited to): 1) Use Microsoft Outlook POP3 Mail 2) Want to keep that as your main mail source, but want to receive duplicates on the phone. 3) Want to be able to reply to a message from your phone and have it appear as if you wrote it from your computer. 4) Receive it as fast as possible 5) Conserve battery life 6) Want to use the HTC Mail widget to preview your messages and have a mail envelope icon in your notification bar. 7) Filter spam and other unnecessary messages from getting to your phone
The best way to set up email on an android phone:
Benefits: - Email pushed to you, so its recieved quicker and preserves phone battery life. I went from about 8 hour battery life to about 27 hours. - Combines addresses into one neat mail location - Lets you reply as if you're replying from any of those addresses - Filters spam and unwanted messages from getting to your phone - Many mail options in android by setting it up this way. Ability to flag messages, sort messages, etc. - Lets you view and quickly flip through or delete messages in a widget. - Eliminates the "on behalf of" statement when sending through gmail.
How to set up: - get gmail account - set up gmail account to receive your mail account(s)... as many accounts as you may have. - set up filters to filter spam, and any regular messages you dont want forwarded to your phone - set up outgoing smtp servers instead of using gmail's. I use authsmtp.com. they are good and cheap. This will let you send your messages as if they were from your Outlook account and not send it saying from <your gmail address> on behalf of <your address> - If you have troubles sending, you might want to set your smtp server's option to send as SSL, and do the same in Gmail...then they should talk nicely.
You probably have a bunch of other settings you want to set between Gmail and your Outlook as well. For example, you want to set your Outlook to leave the messages on the server, and then probably delete them after 2 days (so they don't build up eating up hard drive space). Then in Gmail, make sure that that too does not delete the messages from the server, so that if Gmail checks it first, it leaves it there for your main Outlook account to still get. Gmail is very powerful, as is Outlook so go through your settings to make sure they are all set up the way you want. I'm sure I'm forgetting some things you need to do, so take this guide as a starting point.
On your phone...
Menu->Settings->Data Syncronization->Google - have auto-sync turned off, & background data turned on (for other apps that likely need it) - shut off gmail syncronization from the settings menu.
- set up microsoft exchange activesync with gmail: the whole point of doing this instead of just using the gmail app is to do two things: 1) let us use HTC's nice mail widget to preview and flip through messages, and 2) to have an envelope indicating we have new mail up in the notification bar instead of an @ sign that the Gmail App shows.
Also, if you just set it up as POP3 mail (which you could do to achieve the same thing) the mail notifications will be much slower, and it will eat up your battery life. The Exchange ActiveSync will preserve battery life and push mail to you like the Gmail app does. So again the point here is so you can use the HTC Mail Widget (2 points above)
So to set up ActiveSync with Gmail: email address (all lower case): firstname.lastname@example.org server address (all lower case):m.google.com domain:<leave blank> username (all UPPER CASE): USER@GMAIL.COM password:<your password>
- Probably do not sync your contacts, this can screw up what you already have. - Schedule as items arrive.
Now you can add the HTC Mail widget to neatly view messages in a widget, and you'll have an envelope at the top when you get new mail instead of the gmail @ sign, save battery, filter out spam and other unnecessary messages from getting to your phone, and other reasons listed above.
