    Doe's Droid have Outlook? If so how difficult is it to get? I have a droid. My friend wants one but someone told her that Droid doesn't have Outlook and it was difficult to get. Is this true?

    Mine is set up to use Exchange. I use the stock email client with no problems. Initially, I had my contacts in Exchange but migrated everything to Gmail. I used the calendar without problems, also. I believe that accepting meetings may be an issue.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a Google account that i just set up on outlook as an imap Instead of a pop retrieval and it stays in sync with my phone.
    If you have another account you want to keep you could set up a gmail account & forward to it and get the same results.

    At the risk of sounding totally clueless here..I use my calendar on Outlook. Can I set it up to sync with my Droid..or am I better off changing to Google calendar? If I can sync it, how do I go about doing this?

    Outlook can feed Google Calendar and then Google Calendar feeds your phone calendar by using Google Calendar Sync. I use it and it works like a charm.

    I like Sync2 better than Google Sync. Sync2 works both ways and allows to sync Outlook calendar/contacts items with Google

    After I saw this I started checking into the different options... It looks like Sync2 has the best set of features, but its licensing is extremely restrictive. Yeah, it's an unlimited, "lifetime" license, but it's only good for 1 installation. You can re-install it up to 3 times during the first year if you contact them, but after that year, you can't re-install it, so if you wipe your computer (which I do about once per year) or upgrade, you have to purchase it again.
    KiGoo looks interesting, but their entire site throws up malware warnings in Google Chrome, so I wrote that one off.
    I'm gonna test out OggSynch and gcontactsync when I get home tonight.
    I tried the Freeware program GO Synch last night, but it kept giving me "Greater then zero" and "RPC service has stopped" errors with both Outlook 2k3 and 2k7 on a Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium system.
    If gcontactsync works well, then I can probably pair that with the Google Calendar sync to get both contacts and calendar.
    I'm going to try to ghetto rig the Exchange ActiveSync tonight and see if that works, wish me luck on that one! :)
    I'll let ya'll know how this all goes :)

    Well, I installed the Google Calendar Sync and Google Contacts Sync, both of which are freeware applications. The link for Google Contact Sync is at the bottom of the article.
    I'm running these on a Windows 7 64-Bit Home Premium system with Outlook 2k7 Enterprise. I set both of them up in less then 5 minutes, and that included reading the instructions :)
    They're simple and easy to use. For the Contact Sync, I had to install an anti-virus program (Didn't realize I had forgotten that!) before Outlook would let it access the contact list without me authorizing it every time, but once I did, it went on working without a hiccup!

    UPDATE: I found that the problem I've been having with contact duplication is from the app that I was using, so I removed the link... Guess I'll start testing CompanionLink tonight!

    I'll also toss in that CompanionLink can sync between Outlook and Google, or direct from Outlook to the Droid via a USB cable. Our licensing is also a little more liberal - we license on a per-user basis. This means you get a lifetime license that lets you install the software on as many PCs as you own. For more info on how to sync the Droid with Outlook, and a 14-day free trial, check out www.companionlink.com/phones/moto-droid.html

    Companion link has been around for a number of years and always put out great software. I recall using them with goldmine to sync my palm pilot's in the early days!

    CompanionLink is actually what I was looking at if these freeware programs don't work so well, out of all the ones I saw, yours did seem like one of the nicest and best licensing... I'm just on a duct tape budget right now :)

    Hi,

    Please excuse my ignorance, but I've never had a smart phone of any kind, and I'm considering getting a Casio Commando (I'm a geologist and work in rivers, so any non-rugged phone won't really work for me).

    After reading through many forums about the issues on other Android phones syncing with Outlook e-mails, I want to be sure I understand if this phone has similar challenges. I use Outlook for my business (small business, no Exchange server). I have 2 e-mail accounts that are POP/SMTP and feed into Outlook. From what I understand, it is not possible with any phone running the Android OS to sync e-mails with non-Exchange based Outlook, even through 3rd party software, which means that I would not be able to sync my e-mails between this phone and the Outlook on my PC. Is this correct or am I missing something?

    Will it be possible to look at any new e-mails with this phone while I'm away from my PC (assuming the PC is off, so not collecting e-mails) by directly checking the 2 e-mail accounts?

    My son has suggested setting up a g-mail account, which would be fine if it was for personal use, but this is for my business so I really can't go switching e-mails.

    Thanks for any help, and again, sorry if I am asking silly questions or seem confused (I am!!) I just want to make sure I know how this will (or won't) work as I'm trying to decide if I will purchase it or not. I'm on AT&T right now, and I don't believe they have any rugged smart phones. I guess what I really need is a rugged phone with a Windows operating system!

    P.S. One more question. The specs on the phone say it has a standby time of 11 days, but the reviews on this forum say they have to charge it every day? I guess I don't understand that either.

    See if your email server supports IMAP. It works kind of like sync, whatever happens in one email client will happen in the rest.
    They do support POP as well. And it is just as easy to configure as Outlook.
    You can also set up as many accounts as you want with a consolidated inbox. Very functional and flexible. You may never need Outlook again.
    PM me if you get it and want help setting it up.

    And standby time refers to screen off in your pocket. Not voice or data usage. It just means it can last that long. It rarely ever will, though.
