    i did see an app that allows you to sync with outlook. but seriously, what's the point? the google cloud is far superior. also, if you're talking about media, you can set up a sync with windows media player. media player can sync with any storage device.

    Syncing with PC?

    if your referring to syncing to pc for pics,music,file transfer the droid allows you to drag and drop.using supplied USB cable plug in and pull down USB logo on the top notification bar and hit mount and I drag and drop straight from my windows explorer!

    I know you can sync what ever you have in media player 11. It syncs to any storage type. (I think)

    I know this is an old thread, but I found it while searching for something else. I'm still looking for that 'something else.'

    I am very suspicious of the 'cloud.' As much as we would like to trust others with our information, we should still be careful to who we entrust that information with. Plainly, I don't trust the Google-plex. It's a great search engine and gmail is pretty good as well. Do you really trust Google to keep your information safe from intrusion? I'm skeptical. I had rather sync my Outlook to my phone and keep it there than trusting Google.

    Honestly, I really don't give a *expletive* if Google becomes evil and has my friends phone numbers and email addresses.
    Google doesn't have their Soc Sec Numbers. Big deal. What is Google going to do? Call my friends? Email them? ONO!!!!
    So what?
    It can't legally sell the phone numbers to anyone so I could sue them if they tried.
    Other then that, what are you worried about Google having?!?!?!?!?1

    There is no reason to get so excited, Peregrine! The 'expletive' is not necessary.

    My bad, friend. I was going more for a humour angle there honestly.
    No offense intended.

    Scott, the app you posted looks good, but again, you must be using Microsoft through an exchange server. I don't. mIQ (Dashwire) is still in beta (testing as we speak), and they also store/back up contacts, sms, pictures, and calendar. Only problem is that it is on their server/cloud.

    to use outlook with android you dont need an exchange account, its better if you have one or just use google for that matter. i know on the HTC Incredible when i plug it in i see an option to sync with the computer/outlook, it is possible, i just dont use that

    Unless something has changed since I got my Droid, to get Outlook contacts onto phone, the had to be changed into a csv (?) format. I followed step by step from Google, got my contacts into my Google account, and went from there.
