CompanionLink hung the first three tries after I went into setup settings.
Finally, I skipped configuring setup (which was anything but intuitive) and just did a sync. It starts off by bringing my Google contacts into Outlook, which is what it is (slowly) doing now.
I could care less about getting Google contacts into Outlook. I need to go the other way, so I can get them into the Google cloud, so that I can then (finally!) get them onto my phone.
All in all, a big fail for the Droid out of the box. I mean, the phone is cool, but, er, getting contacts onto the phone is my #1 concern. I agree with others here that the engineers were big on bells and whistles and weren't thinking about actual phone owners and what people do with phones.
