Sync with Microsoft Outlook


Jul 28, 2004, 11:03 AM
Can anyone tell me the best way to sync my Outlook contacts with the VM-4500? I've seen the following softwares:

1) SnapSync
2) Datapilot
3) bitpim.

Also, I have 700 contacts with well over a thousand phone numbers - what's the best way to keep everything synced given the 300/500 limits of the phone?

you can try future dial but the one thing you have to remember is the carrier may support doing any opf this and if it messes up the phone there is no help from the provider

There is a BETTER option for you, handset manager MA-8512c for CDMA Sanyo 5500...comes with 8 features and the price is way cheaper than any item that you listed (US$ 29.00)
Also, this product charges your phone without using a charger!

An update.

I have purchased a FutureDial cable and have downloaded the latest copy of BITPIM. So far so good. It appears that the VM-4500 isn't totally compatible and there are a few bugs - but I am really impressed!

I also purchased a copy od SnapSync - really disappointing. BITPIM is much, much better.

I didn't realize that the FutureDial cable doesn't charge the phone - another disappointment.

I spent 39 bucks to purchase Handset Manager from Fry's electronics, it really surprises me!The package includes both cable and software, with the price of 39, what a great deal! (I also have both Futuredial and datapolot) I think Handset Manager is just amazing and perfect for me. (The cable also charges my phone! ) Very Happy
