Syncing windows phone to outlook (non-exchange)

Is there a way to sync contact and calendar information from outlook on your pc (non-exchange) to a windows phone without using the cloud, or first having to sync to an online outlook.com account?

you don't have to do that as its all automatic mate on your Microsoft account. for example, i have a Hotmail account and i login at setup on my Windows Phone, and all my contacts and calendar information are automatically carried over and accessible on my WP.

Hi solarmaze, no and yes, you can not sync your local Outlook with your phone without a third party software. You have to buy this software to be able to sync with a local outlook installation. Microsoft removed the ability to sync data with their own software when moving from Windows Mobile to Windows Phone. You can however sync if you use their clowdbased Office or store all your private information and data on some MS server somewhere in the world.

I think the sync software is called Outlook Companion or something similar.

Best regards,
