Can I sync my MS outlook via a usb cable without the itunes software? Our IT security system does not allow ITunes on our work computers neither will they allow wireless exchange. I am hoping I can sync my calendar, contacts etc via active sync 4.5 through the usb cable like I do with my current windows smartphone

Here is a way, hope it can help you.1.Connect your iPhone to the computer using the supplied USB cable and launch the iTunes application, if it does not launch automatically. iTunes displays your iPhone on the left panel under "Devices." 2.Click your iPhone on the iTunes panel and click the "Info" tab. Click "Sync contacts with" and select "Outlook." 3.Select "All Contacts" if you want to sync all the contacts from your iPhone to Outlook. If you want to select specific contacts, click "Selected groups" and place a check on the contacts you want to sync to Outlook. 4.Click "Apply" to sync your iPhone contacts to Outlook. Click the "Eject" button on the right panel and disconnect your phone from the computer. Close iTunes. 5.Launch Outlook and click the "Contacts" tab. You should see the imported iPhone contacts.Good luck.
You can do this in iTunes - with the iPhone connected select the 'photos' tab and deselect the folder containing the photos, then hit Sync to remove them.
Alternatively, just move the photos to a different location on your hard drive (out of any folder that is set to sync to iPhone), then connect to iTunes and hit sync.
Hope that helps!
Speaking of syncing iPhone with Outlook, you can take advantage of iTunes to sync contacts.
Connect iPhone to computer with USB cable, and launch iTunes.
Click iPhone icon, and choose Info the Summary Panel in left sidebar.
Check Sync Contacts with, and choose in the drop-down menu.
Click Apply at the right bottom to start syncing iPhone contacts with Outlook.
When the sync is finished, the contacts will show up in the Outlook contacts. Besides syncing contacts, you can also sync iPhone calendars and mails to outlook as well. But if you have noticed, the sync of iTunes is an annoying issue among iPhone users as during the sync of iTunes, the application may erase the available files in their iPhone. http://www.leawo.org/tutorial/how-to-sync-iphone-with-outlook.html
Once your iPhone is connected to your PC and iTunes is loaded you can right click on your iPhone and select exactly what you want to have sync'd.
1. Under the Info tab you will find Contacts.
2. Tick the "Sync contacts with :" and select Outlook from the list.
3. Click "All contacts"
If you wish to put all of your iPhone created contacts into a different group in Outlook you can select the group there also and tick the relevant box.
iTunes always displays a warning about over writing data but that is not relevant to Contacts. Data is always merged.
I hope this solves your problem.
I had the same problem. I had my IT department download the software into a file and they sent me the file so that I would have the program on my hard drive. That permitted me to sync the phone with my Outlook contacts at work.
Well work computers have there own special software I cant help you threw here but what you can do is call Apple and they should walk you threw the steps.

When you connect your iPhone to the PC that you always sync with, Go to Info tab, Check the box Sync Contacts with: and select Outlook. Then make sure that you check the box Put new contacts created on this phone into the group: and select a subfolder in your main contacts folder.
This way, all the contacts from your iPhone will be saved into another folder in your main contacts folder of your Outlook PST.
