    If you want to sync your Outlook Calendar with your Droid (works great!)
    Key note: When adding calendar events into your phone - make sure you select Google Calender and not My Calendar or the appointments you enter into your phone will not sync back up with Outlook.
    Google Calendar Sync allows you to sync events between Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook Calendar. You'll be able to determine the direction of information flow, as well as the sync frequency. Staying on top of your Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook Calendar events has never been easier! Here's some good information to know to help you get started with Google Calendar Sync.

    Uploading Email Contacts
    Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express: Here are some general directions to follow, though instructions may vary by version. For more detailed instructions, open 'Help' in Outlook or Outlook Express and type 'export' in the search box. Look for topics that include 'export wizard,' 'export information,' 'exporting contacts' or 'exporting address book contacts' in the title.
    From Outlook:
    • Select File > Import/Export > Export from the main menu
    • Choose Comma Separated Values (Windows) > Select "Contacts" > Save exported file
    From Outlook Express:
    • Select File > Export > Address Book from the main menu.
    • Select Text File (Comma Separated Values).
    • Click Export.

    Transfering iTunes Music to your Droid phone
    It is a YouTube video. So far so good


    You can always buy a SD adapter and load the music onto your card if you can't get your phone and computer to sync up.

    sync verses uploading information

    The Google Calendar Sync is fantastic for syncing just the calendar. Your way of uploading contacts, however, does not truly sync them with the Fascinate. If you change the contacts in Outlook or on the Fascinate, they are not synced with each other.

    Fortunately, there are a lot of sync solutions for Calendar and contacts. There are also solutions for tasks and notes. Some use Google's services and some use a USB or Wi-Fi connection. www.syncdroid.net keeps an up to date chart of the available software. A lot of it is free, but they list the paid software as well.

    The Samsung solution is Kies, but as I understand it, this has not been officially released for US customers and can cause problems. Syncdroid talks about this as well.
