Re: PC Sync with Outlook Categories

ok, heres the macro page: http://www.davidco.com/forum/showthread.php?9169-Calendar-application-for-GTD-on-Symbian-S60-Nokia-E...

 

i do know this is nowhere near the ease i had when i still had my zire71 :smileysad: but

its the closest i can think of on a s60 device. in fact, the latest ver of sbsh cal /w outlook + pc sync works so well that i dont even pay attention to this dilemma anymore :smileyhappy:

Re: PC Sync with Outlook Categories

And the latest firmware update completely destroyed pc sync. Even the basic calendar / contacts sync is **cked up now. Yesterday I bought a new Sony Ericsson Aspen winmo 6.5.3. and sync works like charm. I will never spend another minute figuring why my e72 business-smartphone doesnt act like one, instead i did the ultimate solution > switching to a real smartphone with all the basic elements there. I recommend this solution to everyone wasting time with Nokia.

Re: PC Sync with Outlook Categories

I have just lost the great majority (but not all, somehow) of my Outloook Categorizations.  The only possibility is during synchronization with e71 through either Nokia PC Suite or, more likely, through a failed synchronization with Ovi.

 

This is serious for me.  I did not think it was possible to lose original data in a sync.  I back up but not that often and have a lot of new entries since last time.

 

Any suggestions anyone.  Is the data in there somewhere?

Re: PC Sync with Outlook Categories

Any news on this? Categories anyone? Has Nokia at least confirmed they are looking into this or just ignoring us?

Re: PC Sync with Outlook Categories

Any news? Give Nokia a break, it's only been a little over 5 years since this thread was started.

 

In my opinion this thread symbolizes why Nokia is no longer the #1 cell phone company. Five years of waiting and we still can't organize our phone numbers with the worlds #1 contact software (Microsoft Outlook). For years I was a Nokia loyalist and I would only buy Nokia phones. My current phone is not a Nokia and chances are I will never own one again.

 

In a similar vein here is a good article I found today:

Re: PC Sync with Outlook Categories

I think the Symbian platform support will die in 2016 without Outlook categories or folder sync support. And the conclusion will be that in the end it was not that important, people were able to live without it. This is a sad joke, though.

Re: PC Sync with Outlook Categories

I don't think people necessarily lived without it.  A more likely conclusion is that people changed platforms.  For a signifcant (though not necessarily a majority) percentage of the smartphone population, it is very important.

Re: PC Sync with Outlook Categories

Because of these annoyances, like Outlook folder sync is missing, I am constantly evaluation other platforms, webOS, iPhone, Android.

If on any platform the hardware gets good enough, I will see little reason to stay.

Unless, those platforms also have such small bugs-annoyances that make me come back.

Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) adaptiable by any one on a domain without having everyone join it.

 

Triosync is ready to go ActiveSync mail option for anyone on any domain. You can have Exchange Mail with Activesync without having an Exchnage Server for your domain
