One of the biggest disappointments and issues for many users who have or wish to move to a Windows Phone 7 device is the lack of ease with which they can connect their smartphone to a PC and sync it with Outlook that they use on their PC.
Previous version of Windows Mobile did this with ease and everyone was happy. Despite mobile phone tariffs having data connections which can be left on etc, the simplicity of once a day connecting to a PC with a cable is just too great for some, especially if this has been the habit for the last few years.
Windows Phone 7 backs the device up to the ‘Cloud’, a Windows Live account. This is all well and good as you know your data is constantly backed up, but when working at your desk many do not want to go to a web portal to access and amend content, or do this on the phone itself, they want to do it within Outlook.
The good news is, that this is possible, it takes just a few short steps!
Device Magazine have put together a great guide on how to do this.
It simply involves connecting your Windows Live account to Outlook on your PC using Outlook Connector. It will take only only a few minutes to do.
The result? Once connected, providing your smartphone and PC have connections to the internet, you can be assured that your phone, desktop and the web will all stay in sync with each other. So if you add a contact when out of the office to your phone, by the time you are back your Outlook contact database will have been updated to show the new contact – this principle applies to calendar appointments and emails too! Perfect.
