How to Transfer Contacts from Outlook to Android

If you just buy an Android phone, and prepare to import phone numbers or contacts from Outlook to the new phone. It's unimaginable to input contacts one by one if you have hundreds of contacts. Worse still, if your contacts are more than a sim card can hold, you can't just put the sim card to your Android phone to transfer contacts. In fact, one easy way is to sync contacts from Outlook to Android phone.

Ways to sync contacts from Outlook to Android phone:

Owners of some HTC devices like the EVO 4G can use HTC Sync 3.0, which is a specially designed Microsoft Outlook and Windows Address Book-syncing app. It synchronizes contacts and calendars from Outlook to Android. However,  HTC Sync 3.0 doesn't work with all HTC phones, and just for some latest new phones. Hit HTC's site to get more information or download Sync 3.0.

And too many Android phones lack free Outlook sync options, or some phones do not let you sync Outlook contacts with Android at once. You may need to import and export CSV files full of contacts. Then you may turn to MobileGo, which enables you to import contacts from Outlook to Android immediately and conveniently.

Hi, the latest version of Wondershare MobileGo can sync Outlook contacts with your Android device with keeping the group structure. Besides, it''s free now. You don''t need to pay.
This is a huge flaw- I have several overlapping groups (by different operator/carriers; newer/older) and if it just takes them all it would be a big mess. Also I must say- I thought this was free too- if the main purpose of program (outlook to phone) is only on the paid pro version, you must tell people up front!
Then delete the google account to try to hide your life from the evil octopus, but that''s probably futile since they have the right to steal everything. I knew running an OS by monster Google was a bad idea- wish I''d got a Bada Samsung- the latest models were powerful + now dirt cheap.

Jazz, Wondershare MobileGo for Android supports transferring contacts in one group from Outlook to Android, excluding the group data.
I have my contacts organized into 2 groups in Outlook 2007. MobileGo is only able to see contacts in one of those groups. When it transfers just those it does not keep the group structure, it grabs all the loose contact info and puts it in my "Not Assigned" folder. How can I import both groups (or more for that matter) into my Android? And will it import all and keep the grouped data structured as it is on my PC in Outlook?
bring ur own calendar then...hehehe just joking lol..
