The easiest way to handle this would be to sync your computer with outlook or outlook express, or even windows address book. Whichever program has no contacts listed. Download the contacts into the windows program, and then resync your old contacts into your new phone. Microsoft sync is usually the program used for this. Hope this helps!
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.
You can send your contacts via Bluetooth, it'll be stored within the Documents folder. Open the vcf file - contact file and select Add to Contacts.
If this option is not available I would recommend sync-ing through Outlook. Put the LG software on to your computer and complete the sync. Then connect your BlackBerry and using the BlackBerry Desktop Manager you should be able to sync your contacts with Outlook.
Install activesync, which your probably already have. If not, go here. Once you setup a sync profile (if you just got it) make sure contacts get synced. If you had it for a while, go to Tools>Options and make sure contacts is checked.
You must have Outlook. The when synced the contacts will appear in Outlook. Not sure if it works with outlook express, but you might as well try.
at the moment there is no Exchange support for the G1 phone, Fortunately though, with it being Open-Sourced OS i can guarantee some person and/or company is Creating a program for the phone which allows Push Exchange support for outlook etc ! as it is a widely used program.
There are already programs created which allow the Synching of Outlook Contacts and it Does support Pull POP3/IMAP email
The closest I have come has been from a firmware update for the Palm phone. After the update, the phone saw my original contact list and created a second contact list from what was present in the Palm calendar.
If you have changed firmware and this issue started happening, you'll need to delete the duplicates in Outlook or it will continue to try and update/save them. Also, this is most likely why your sync sessions are taking more time...the phone is trying to read the different entries already present in outlook, and it is taking time to default when it cannot open the entries. Multiply that time by 4 or 5 times per entry and you have a very long sync session.
Hard-reset your Palm to erase all data (that usually involves pushing the small "reset" button on the back, then pressing the "power on" button until the device boots, and then pressing "up" to confirm the hard-reset)
After that, sync your palm. The sync software will ask if you want to use your existing profile or create a new one. Create a new one. Then the program will offer to sync your Outlook profile with your Palm. Click on "ok", and a message asking you to accept to sync your Outlook data with more than one profile will pop-up. Click on OK, again... and that's it!
