I have recently bought N9 and can not sync contacts and calendar with PC (Outlook, Windows 7, 64 bit), neither via USB or bluetooth.
N9 apparently has sync options with online services (which I don't use) and phones. I can pair N9 with my PC, Ipad (1) and Samsung Innov8, but when I try to sync my contacts and calendar items (via Settings > Sync & Backup > Sync) N9 does not see my PC, Ipad, and although it still can see Samsung Innov8 it can not sync with it.
N9 is not supported by Nokia PC Suite (although PC Suite recognizes N9, and even provides some functionality) and Ovi Suite, so one can't use these soft for sync. Nokia Link only provides option to sync musice, video and images.
The issue seems to be a killer of the N9, at least for me...
Anyone knows how to sync contacts and calendar?
So far the only reaction from Nokia was that they moved this topic from NSeries to Maemo/MeeGo forum. Good start, although not helpful.
Meanwhile I've downloaded Nokia Suite Beta and it also does not support N9 (although, when I registered device at Nokia BetaLabs and indicated that I use N9, Nokia Suite was a recommended software).
It appears that N9 is a dead end.
Is there any plans to introduce capability of PC sync? If not I should consider returning device to where it belongs -- Nokia
Sync your pc calendar to google and then sync from google to your phone. I'm doing that for my contacts and calendar.
Thanks for this. I will try it -- at least to have my current contacts synced.
Does this work in both directions (i.e. if I have a new contact in phone, will I be able to sync it with gmail and then with Outlook). The procedure sounds inconvenient, but it appears to be the only option now. Thank you for your help.
Unfortunately, this does not help. Gmail imports contacts in CSV or vCard formats, my Outlook contacts are in pst format.
I finally did it on Windows 7 (64):
1. First make sure you uninstall Nokia PC Suite, Ovi Suite, Nokia Suite, Nokia Link. Make sure you go to msconfig (Start>Run). In Start-up tab uncheck all Nokia items;
2. Remove all Bluetooth pairing before with your PC from N9 and vise versa.
3. Restart PC and N9 (I have also turned off anti-virus and disconnected from WiFi).
4. Pair N9 with PC
5. Go to Control Panel>Devices and Printers > Double-click N9 icon
6. Choose your sync settings in the left side of the window and sync method in the right side of the window (Back up and synchronization> Synchronize Contacts and Calendar between this computer and the (N9) phone). I was not able to sync mail and notes, but synced calendar and contacts. This still perfectly works for me.
All tribute goes to eagle3 from gsmarena.com (who actually provided a link http://talk.maemo.org/showpost...ostcount=235) and marrat from talk.maemo.org
PC SUite (not ovi suite) 188.8.131.52 definitely syncs well with the N9. All the smses appear when I press F5 and I can reply from the computer

I tried PC Suite (3.2.64), it didn't work.
I also tried Ovi Suite and Nokia Suite -- no success.
The PC Suite does recongnize the phone, and even provides some functionality (such as internet connection) but could not sync my contacts and calendar.
Well, I think I was too happy yesterday to report problem solved (or maybe too tired -- since it tool me quite an effort to do BT sync).
The issue which is annoying is that my calendar items didn't sync properly -- all events were messed, and occurrence for each annual reminder for some reason became weekly
Another thing is that when you try to sync contacts -- it will not sync only changes, but will sync the whole contacts anew -- taking pretty much time
Doesn't work for me no matter what I do (reboot PC, N9 or both). and for some reason I think it can't work, since Nokia says Ovi Suite does not support N9, they even say that in fact N9 does not support Nokia Suite (which is replacement of Ovi Suite)
N9 is a very good phone but for me its useless without possibility to sync with outlook. When will the problem be solved? Anybody at Nokia who has an answer???
I have tryed all suggested solutions and nothing works.
Same for me, I was ready to by N9 but got information that sync and connection don't work with OVi Suite or PC´cSuite the Link ar not compatible with Vista or XP. You are looking at a good (nearly perfect) phone but then it's ending up in nothing.
Nokia do something, because if you do the same with the Nokia Windows phone it will be big fiascoe.
Could you please also let us know if and when a proper contacts and calendar sync will be for N9 and Windows 7 (64 bit)?
