Outlook 2007 BCM no-show in Contacts section - Windows Mobile 6.1

I have a HTC Touch-Pro phone loaded with Mobile 6.1. I have everything loaded and there are no problems except the BCM files are in their own area and not in the Contacts section. I can go into BCM and make phone calls and email out, however if I have to CC someone I cannot because it goes to Contacts, not the BCM area. I also cannot use any other programs that reference back to the Contacts area, like favourite phone numbers, recognizing calls, adding new numbers from phone calls, and the list goes on. This is a serious problem for convenient usage of the phone. Everything else about the phone I like
Is there any way you know of to fix this problem?

    Thx ananimus3. We already did that one and I was surprised - it only took about 15 minutes to do. I am not going to update that way all the time - about every 2 weeks or so. Not great, but at least it works like it should and I still have my BCM data on the phone as well.

Sorry, linward. There's currently no easy solution for your problem. It seems MS is still working on fleshing out the BCM Mobile program further, but right now what you've seen is what you've got.

There are ugly workaround options, but anytime you want to update your information it could take a solid hour or two to run through. These involve exporting your BCM data via a CSV file, editing out unneeded fields in Excel, then importing the edited CSV file into your Outlook contacts and syncing. :-/

    If it's any consolation I had a similar issue with getting contacts out of ACT! for a company I worked for a couple years back. Had to use the same solution. Quite tedious for a database with over 2,000 contacts.

    Good luck!

I have a Ipaq 2200 version 4.2 2003 will it active sync with windows7


In order to sync your iPAQ with Windows Vista or Windows 7, you will need to download and install Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 from http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/downloads/microsoft/device-center-download.mspx.

Notes
  • To find out whether your version of Windows Vista or Windows 7 is 32-bit or 64-bit, click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties. The version is listed after System Type.
  • You can use Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 only with phones running Windows Mobile 2003 or later. ActiveSync and Windows Mobile Device Center won’t work with Windows Embedded CE 4.2 or 5.0, Pocket PC 2002, or Smartphone 2002 devices. (To see which Windows Mobile operating system you’re using, and if your phone doesn’t have a touch screen, click Start > Settings > About. If your phone has a touch screen, click Start > Settings > System tab > About.) To sync content to any of these devices, you must use a USB or serial cable and your computer’s Internet connection and File Explorer.
  • You must use Microsoft Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003, or Office Outlook 2007 to sync your e-mail, contacts, tasks, and notes from your computer.
  • You must use a USB cable to connect your phone to your computer the first time you use Windows Mobile Device Center to sync.

I have switched from IPAQ with Chapura to HTC w/ Windows. I have multiple calendars on Outlook and want to have them also on the HTC. My tech team told me that I can handle via Catagories, but it doesn't...


you may be able to use google calendars to link your outlook with, google calendar will color code your different calendars. if you are successful with that, then google has a program called google sync that you can use on your windows mobile phone. the steps for setting up your windows mobile phone is on the google sync site. you will use activsync on the windows mobile phone to insert your google credentials and then it will wirelessly sync your contacts/calendar from your phone with gmail/google calender

the easiest way is to sync your phone with your computer, all the contacts from the phone will be copied to outlook contact list, if you dont use outlook, you can use it as a storage medium anyway.

Unable to sync contacts from outlook to htc diamond


Hi. In the sync options, there should be a couple of different options such as selecting either the phone or the outlook for the master of the contacts. So if you can change the option to copy contacts from outlook to phone (should be reverse in order to continously backup phone data) I think that tick will be seen when you got all your contacts to your phone. Hope this helps.

Can't sync contact and calender items to outlook 2007


First off, please don't give me a bad rating, as I don't have Vista, and this is simply a guess..

Secondly, Look around in the settings in WDMC, maybe there is a setting to copy contacts on device onto outlook on the PC. Don't bother looking in outlook since the device usually sync with Activesync/WDMC, which does the rest it self.
