    How to get all your Outlook contacts on your Android (2.1 and above) phone

    Being trying to get an easy method to do this for ages on my new Orange San Francisco phone and finally sussed it out.

    So i've written a noddy guide below, hope it helps some one.

    How to get all your Outlook contacts on your Android phone

    Open Outlook
    Select Contacts
    Click File
    Select Import and Export
    Select Export to a file
    Select Tab Separated Values (windows)
    Select Contacts folder when asked which folder to export from and click next
    Select browse and the desktop for easy access later click ok and then next
    Then click finish
    You will now have a .txt file on your desktop (With what ever you named it or default is contacts)
    Open it click edit and select all, right click on the highlighted text and select copy

    Now go to this website:

    homepage.mac.com/phr…tml

    Right click and select paste in the step 1 box
    Click step 2 (I just left this and didn’t alter it)
    Click step 3 then right click on the highlighted text and select copy
    Now open notepad on your computer
    Right click on the empty page and select paste
    Select file
    Select save as and now in the name box type contacts.vcf (removing the .txt file name)
    You will now have a vcf file with all your contacts in.
    Place this in the root of your SD Card
    On your phone click contacts, then the menu button and select import/export
    Now all your contacts will be transferred to your phone

    Job done!

    or just sync your contacts with your googlemail account
    and then sync the phone with your gmail account

    also that vcf/csv file can be imported directly into your web based gmail account and then synced from the phone
