View Full Version : Synching Outlook Contacts with Galaxy S1

05-03-2012, 08:21 PM
Hi there,

I have a 2nd hand Galaxy S1. I used to have an iPhone 3GS and so all my contacts are synched with iTunes.

I know I can sync my contacts with Outlook to get them saved in there.

How can I get them from Outlook into my S1?

It will save me from having to put them in 1 by 1!

Thanks in advance to any suggestions.

You may have to use something else (http://samsunggalaxysforums.com/showthread.php/3472-Problem-syncing-outlook-contacts-using-Kies). Like Gmail. Looks like you may have probs with OL 2010. If youre using Outlook 2007 close it before you sync (http://androidforums.com/android-applications/196873-samsung-galaxy-s-outlook-sync.html)

Thanks for that. You thinking of something like Google Sync? Will that do it? Is that the equivalent of Active Sync?

I have no idea if it'll work or not. Never used it or Active Sync. Only way is to try it

The easiest way is to save your contacts as a vCard file (.vcf), except where this article says "Select the contact", you want to select all of them:

Then, login to Gmail and you'll see at the top-left it says "Mail" with a down-facing arrow beside it. Click on that and choose Contacts.

Now, import your vCard file you've just created.

That's about it, all done!

Provided you've setup your Galaxy S to sync your contacts (I believe it's enabled by default when you add your first Google Account to the phone), they'll be pulled down within about 30 seconds :)
