Here are the easy steps you can use to sync Outlook contacts and Calendars on the Samsung Galaxy S2.

Microsoft Office Outlook is a very popular mail client software on the Windows PC. Most of the major corporation uses Outlook to manage emails, contacts calendars and etc.

In order for you to easily sync contacts and calendar you will need to use MyPhoneExplorer software. This software need to install both on the computer and your Galaxy S2.

This tutorial will assume that your mobile device and computer can connect to the same WiFi network.

1. First download and install MyPhoneExplorer on the PC. While installing MyPhoneExplorer it will also attempt to install RegClean Pro software. I hate this kind of software. When the screen popup asking for your confirmation, just click on Decline button. The installation should then continue on.

Rob - I can\'t recall whether you have the option to synch or merge. Please find the developer email address here fj.wechselberger@gmail.com and you can direct your question to them.

Say I have tow different contact lists in my outlook and then on my phone, when i Synch using this software, will they combine all contacts(and notes attached to those contacts) together or will one over write the other, if so will it be phone or computer contacts? Is this what the force outlook>phone or force phone>outlook options do?
