How do I sync my Outlook contacts and calendar with my Droid X. From everything I've read I may be sorry I got the "X."
No, it's not that hard to do. Go into gmail. Go to your settings. You will see on the second tab a link with instructions about how to sync outlook.
You do it by creating csv files and then importing them into gmail. I've never done it so I can't give you the details step by step but they are available in Gmail's help.
I know my wife did it without asking anybody. She just followed the directions in gmail.
Edit: Just to be clear I meant your gmail account on line, not the app.
You can use MyPhoneExplorer - works great to synchronize the calendar and the contacts between your phone and Outlook (without going through Google Calendar) and other files if you wish. No Notes support though.
