6300 calendar sync with MS Outlook

6300 calendar sync with MS Outlook

Hi, with my brand new N6300 I want to skip my old PDA and only use my phone for sync of calendar appointments.

Problem is that whilst the calendar appointments are sync'ed alright, I only seem to get the 'Subject line' from the appointment over from Outlook into my N6300, but non of the text from the text field from Outlook which that typically wld hold the eg. the agenda of the meeting.

I use the Nokia PC Suite for the sync process and I have reviewed it i detail, but do not seem to find anything that I have left out.

A friend of mine has a N73, he gets it all...is this there a limitation on N6300 on this point?

Thanks for any hits anybody may have

Re: 6300 calendar sync with MS Outlook

Hi, I was told to call the support centre who told me that I need a N-series or E-series as the N6300 only supports transfer of Subject lines, reminder function (time) and the location (e.g. a specific meeting room or city etc)

Re: 6300 calendar sync with MS Outlook

Hi - I don't quite understand you as I have a N73 and the same problems occur when I synchronise MS Outlook appointments. On my N73 I can only see the Subject text and not also the Details too.

I travel a lot and use the Details field to hold e.g. my travel plan ect. Help is really appreciated.

Re: 6300 calendar sync with MS Outlook

Due to the length limitations on entries in the calendar of the phone only the subject will be taken across. Also, the subject can only be text in Outlook where the body have have html and other embedded objects. Therefor the phone ignores the body.

Re: 6300 calendar sync with MS Outlook

Thank you for your insight "Knowledge". However, isn't there a paradoks when Briansax has a friend who's N73 apparently does sync with Appointment details and not just Subject text.

Therefore, if would be interesting if Briansax could double check with his friend to confirm whether it really is true that the friend is able to sync with MS Outlook and getting Appointment details into his N73 calendar.

Hope your are still here Briansax and willing to help.
