Need a new phone, MUST sync with Exchange
Tuesday 17th of May 2011
Hello everyone,I have been browsing the forum for a little while now trying to figure out if an Android phone is a good option for me. I am a heavy Exchange user (including notes and tasks). I am currently using a Windows Mobile phone and had planned to upgrade to a Windows Phone 7 phone, but it appears MS has not done the best job in the world on it. So, I am now looking at Android.I have been reading up on it and it sounds like Android has built in functionality to sync Contacts, Email, and Calendars with an Exchange server. However, it does not handle tasks or notes and its full featured functionality in the contacts and calendar is in question.I see where a lot of people recommend Touchdown, so I contacted them. But got a little scared after talking to them because it sounds much like an Outlook program on my phone, but may actually lack the ability to truly integrate with my phone's built in features. For instance, they told me that to have my Exchange Contacts show up in the phone's Contact list (so I could quickly/easily call them and so their name would appear with caller I
Sync with outlook? - Page 2
Monday 28th of June 2010
Bear in mind...as you read through all the various threads and workarounds...Android was not designed to sync to outlook...period. Outlook is a client that allows you to send and retrieve emails and calendars from and to a server. Be it an exchange server or some other SMTP/POP3, IMAP or whatever protocol is used by that server. Droid comes with Corporate Mail which is a client that allows you to send and retrieve emails and calendars from and to a server...be it exchange or gmail or some other server software ... There should be a server between your desktop and the droid for it to work the way it was designed. Client to Client sync is not supported on the Droid. That's not to say that there is not an app on the market that does this type of sync for you. And Droid does have the ability to set up an account based on SMTP/POP3. But as far as syncing...you won't get a sync setup that is as clean as the cloud system that Droid was designed around. One server where multiple clients can connect and share the same database. Everything stored on the server so each client sees the same data
Goggle Nexus Contact Sync Issue
Thursday 06th of December 2012
I've just joined the Android team with a Google Nexus (GT-i9250). Although, I have linked my Google account with the phone and it syncs all the remaining elements, Contacts is the one thing it does not and ends up with the msg: "Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly". I have a standard Nexus without any upgrades or off-market changes and it does not have an exchange server connected to it. Two others points of concern: 1. Can I sync the GNexus with Outlook (contacts) via my laptops, using Samsung Kite or another sofware? 2. The phone is asking me to upgrade to Jellybean 4.1 - do I accept and if so, would I lose my data (pics and contacts)? Thank you for all your help and hopefully I will be happy camper when it comes to the Droid family!
Enterprise Server for Sprint HTC Android?
Saturday 25th of September 2010
Wife has to carry two phones because new employer only supports BlackBerry and Iphone with Enterprise Server... 1. Is there an enterprise Server version and service for Sprint Android? 2. Does the IT deparment there need to run something extra on their servers to support Android Enterprise? Big deal?3. What exactly does Enterprise server introduce? Does it mean they can add a policy to her phone? Will they be able to monitor phone activity? What activity? Calls?, Internet traffic? SMS? Side question. If I am able to add a corporate email address to the phone (not manually) and it adds the account via pop (automatically) and it works but only with 30 minute get refreshes and only for email, no calendars or contacts refreshing. Will it also likely work if I add it manually through exchange active sync on the phone ? I have not tried since I don't know the main exchange server address. Does this tie into Enterprise server in any way? When Enterprise server is enabled, you won't be able to add an email via pop or activesync right?unless they set it up and you have enterprise level serv

Has anyone else taken a look at Dataviz's RoadSync? Right now I am running the 14 day test trial and it seems to be working fairly well for me. It sets up a seperate email icon for your Exchange email and calendar. It does bring your contact directly into the native contact list. The only downside that I have expierenced is that when it was pulling in the contacts from the Exchange server, it merged several contacts in to one and actually deleted a few. I was able to just put them back into my contact list from the Deleted Items. Right now they are offering the software for $9.99 once the trial period is up. It is a nice prince point.

Sync Exchange, outlook and phone
Wednesday 11th of January 2012
I am trying to sync my outlook Calendar, contacts and tasks between my work machine (Exchange/outlook), my personal machine (Outlook), and my Android phone (HTC - Evo 3D).Previously, I used my old Motorola phone (which I only use for this sync) to sync outlook to outlook between my laptops, and then used Touchdown to sync between exchange and my android cell phone. I could still do this EXCEPT that my new client's laptop does not sync with my Motorola phone. This means that touchdown on my Android phone still syncs with my work exchange server, but I don't know how to get my calendar, contacts and tasks from my personal computer to my work computer. Well, I know how to do it manually, but that is very painful -- export to a file and transfer over. ... although, I may resort to that if I cannot find another way.Please help!

Android 4.4 Exchange Server: Missing and duplicated calendar events
Wednesday 15th of January 2014
I just got a Motorola Moto X with Android 4.4. I set up my work's Exchange Server account on my phone and it syncs email correctly. However, most calendar events are missing. The calendar events that do appear on my phone begin to duplicate every time the phone syncs to the server. These duplicates do not appear when I access my calendar online or on my laptop. The only trend I see is that any event added after I got my new phone will sync and then duplicate. Older events either do not sync at all, or do sync but then don't duplicate. Touchdown does work correctly, but I also use Google Calendar so I need all my events to be access by the Android's native calendar application, so Touchdown is not the solution for me. I have already done the following with no success:1. Deleted and re-created the Exchange account on my phone.2. Logged into the web interface for my work's owa server and deleted extra devices/phones configured to sync to the server (based on this thread: )3. I have already cleared data and caches in my calendar apps, then re-synced. Any advice? It's a massive bummer fo
Problems with My Exchange Account
Friday 31st of January 2014
I am hoping Android 4.4.2 drops soon as I cannot connect to my office Exchange account. I heard 4.4.2 will address this issue.I even tried MailWise Beta which seems like a great Email client. Does anyone know where I can send a complaint to at Motorola? I would think this is a big issue for some people. I know not everyone is affected which seems strange.My office is running Exchange Server 2010 and No Certificates are required. The error message returned is that I don't have Permission to Sync with the Server. My office Administrator says my settings are correct. Thanks for any comments. -Rich
No sync w/exchange server when traveling
Thursday 07th of August 2014
Using a new Moto X with android version 4.4.2. Every time I land in a different city, my phone will no longer sync with the exchange server. So far this has happened when landing in both Chicago and Ft Lauderdale. I've gone to Sprint stores in both cities and they don't have a clue how to fix it. Have even deleted the account and tried to re-install. Will not connect to the server, no matter what we try. One corporate rep recommended that they replace the phone but that the replacement would be a used phone and that it would take 3 days to get one. By that time, my business meetings are over in that city and I'm still without email on my phone. Have also tried to uses Outlook OWA. It grabs a few emails from 4-6 months ago, and then 1 or 2 current ones. Then it refuses to show any more new emails in the inbox. It does show recent sent emails but not new ones. I end up being tied to my laptop and wifi networks to communicate with the office and customers. Once I get back home, I can go back in and re-create the email account and it works, although Outlook OWA still doesn't work on the
