Question about Sharp Wizard OZ-290

Incomplete synchronisation of contact list

I created a .CSV file from my contacts list in Outlook 2003 and then imported onto the PDA. When I check the contacts file, it placed them into the Business section of telephone listing because I did not have a choice to place it in Personal, but the information pulled across only includes name and address and e-mails no telephone numbers or mobiles. In the settings under PIM it asks if you want Home (address & Fax No: or Office Address & Fax No: details imported so I selected Home and then it asked if you want from today forward info or all and I selected all. Could this be because the fields in Outlook 2003 are different to the fields used in the PDA? Has anyone come across this problem?

    Thanks. The PDA booklet doesn't say what software it is running but says it is compatable with Microsoft Outlook. I have Office 2003 Student edition on my PC with a very extensive contacts list in outlook. When I synchronise it only copies names across. I have tried several different ways but each time the file only copies names not phone numbers or addresses. I believe that the field headers used in the PDA software differ from those used in Outlook and that is why it is not synchronising but it states in the booklet that it should with Outlook and Outlook express as well. Are you abel to provide a solution. Thanks for your help? I am using Windows XP.

    Thanks again for your help. When exporting I have used CSV Windows not Dos. I have tried to use the TSV file extension but it will not recognise it at all when I choose to import to the PDA. It appears it will only import CSV files. I have set all the recommended settings as per the manual info page 28 previously which is where I found out about the HOME & OFFICE selection. However you do not get an option to which folder of your telephone book in the PDA it should be stored to eg. Personal or Business. It just drags it all into the Business folder but only the names come across. Would it perhaps be advisable to use some other sync software as I downloaded the Sharp OZ-290 software from the sharp site as I misplaced the original CD when we moved two years ago. Any further advice would be appreciated.

If it is MS office software on the PDA the fields should convert. Problems arrive with different versions though. What is the Software you are using on the PDA? (and version, and version of win)?

    Can you tell me the brand/model number so i can look up the exact version of software you run?
    My only recommendation in the short term is try different file types. When you export from outlook, are you using comma separated values (windows)? or (dos)? Make sure you use the same setting when importing. You could try a 'tab seperated value' file aswell.

    Also, when you pick the file name, there may be a field called "map custom fields" just before you click ok (exists in the current version version of office, I don't have office 2003 at the moment to check). In this field you can make sure numbers etc are selected, and even swap home numbers to be imported into the business numbers field etc.


  • aaron irving Jun 13, 2008

    It seems like the default sharp PC software for syncing also allows exporting files from outlook (rather than doing from within outlook).
    The oz-290 seems to run sharp specific software :) so don't worry about versions etc.

How do I add an email address to "other contacts" in my gmail contacts?


That probably depends upon the 3rd party. You MIGHT try exporting your contacts list (as a .csv, or Comma Separated Values, file). You can then open that file with Excel or OpenOffice Spreadsheet and change it around however you like. Your 3rd party software may be able to import the .csv file, or you may be able to reimport it into gMail and have it automatically rearrange your contacts.

I have a nextbook next6 tablet. it comes up with an error reading android.process.acore. all the time. can you help me.


This Android OS acore error seems to lie within contacts synchronization going wrong.
Because of that we need to clear all contacts (and restore them). This is how to do it:
Step 1 - clearing all contacts information
1.First of all, make a backup of all your contacts. You can do this easily by downloading ExportContacts from Market, fire up the app and export contacts to a csv file on your phone memory card. To be sure, copy the csv file to your hard drive too.
2.Then go to Menu -> Settings -> Data synchronization and turn of all synchronization.
3.Go to Settings -> Applications and tap Manage Applications. The list of applications will now take a while to load. When it's finished, find Contacts Storage, tap Clear data and tap Clear cache.
Note: all your contacts information will now be wiped out - but you're safe - you've already exported the contacts.
4.Turn on synchronization again (Menu -> Settings -> Data synchronization).
Step 2 - restore contacts information
Now we just need to restore the contacts information, which is saved in the csv file we created before. We will do this by importing the csv file to Gmail and let Gmail synchronize with the Android phone.
Note: You can import csv files to almost any email program or service, preferably Outlook or Gmail.
1.Login to your Gmail account -> Go to Contacts -> Click Import (top right corner).
2.Click Choose File -> Choose your csv file -> Click Import.
3.Done!
Now it might take a short while (a minute or so) for the phone to synchronize your Gmail contacts.
When the synchronization is finished you've got your contacts in Gmail and in the phone.
Shut for tablet down for 30 seconds. Boot it back up.

My final objective is to copy my contacts and messages in my Nokia E66 (with a symbian OS) to my new HTC Legend with an Android 2.1 OS. To do this i have devised the following way - 1) Using Nokia PC...


There could be two problems first once you used comma separated values spaces in contact names are definetly going to occur that is going to ruin the file. This approach is entirely not recommended. Secondly if the file while copy has triggered any event in the OS that will be unavailable and would be shown under using category. Hence, first hit ctrl + alt + del open processes tab right click processes and select end process tree wait for 10 seconds click on first tab and click new task command button and type explorer and ok. Now try to import the contacts in outlook. I'm providing this so you can do this with your own method. There are many more methods to achieve the same. Kindly let me know if this does not works.

I cannot get my comcast email contacts switched over to verizon. What should I do?


What email program are you using? That will determine where your contacts are stored, and that will determine your options.

If you are using ComCast's Web-based email system (in your Web browser), you'll either need to import them into a local program like Outlook or Outlook Express, or you'll have to talk to ComCast about exporting them to a .csv file. If you can display a list of them in tabular format on the screen, you may be able to copy-and-paste it into an Excel spreadsheet and then save that as a .csv file. If you're already using Outlook or Outlook Express, you should be able to just create the new Verizon mailbox and retain your existing contacts. If you can get them as a .csv file, you can either import that into Outlook or Outlook Express, or you can talk to Verizon about importing it into their Web-based email system.
