Need a new phone, MUST sync with Exchange


Tuesday 17th of May 2011 / talkandroid.com
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

Exchange sync more than 30 days on android phone


Tuesday 22nd of March 2011 / droidforums.net
My boss came to me today and told me he wanted all his mail to be accessable from his phone. I recently set up an exchange server for our mail and set him up with an android phone and he likes that he gets his mail there... However no he has that inch, he wants a mile... The most you can sync your phone with exchange is 30 days. He wants to have all his mail... about 2GB worth... First does the corporate sync put the mail on your SD card? and second is there any aplication that will let me see all my folder sand mail thats in outlook thats synced with exchange? Thanks...

Corporate Sync: Contacts pictures


Sunday 08th of January 2012 / androidforums.com
HI there,I have just bought a Motorola Razr because my Galaxy S2 does not sync multiple calendars from one exchange account and the Razr does.However, the Razr does not sync the pictures of my contacts which are on the exchange server. iOS, WP7 and the Galaxy S2 sync them.I have read, that this is a problem of Motorolas contact app. However, are there any news on that? I'd like to keep an Android device because I like the openess of the system. But as none of these work flawlessly with exchange, I'm about to change to iOS. Thank you!

Sync with outlook? - Page 2


Monday 28th of June 2010 / droidforums.net
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 / forums.androidcentral.com
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 / androidforums.com
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

Exchange Activesync problem Desire HD: Cannot send from Android native mail app


Saturday 13th of November 2010 / androidforums.com
So I have a brand new Desire HD. Up until 2 days ago, everything was working perfectly with my Outlook Exchange Account on the native Android Mail application. Running Android 2.2Since then, there is something wrong with our Outlook certificate, and when I launch Outlook on my PC, I get a message that the name on the certificate is not valid. Ok, fine. So on the PC, I press "OK" and I am off and running.On the Desire, I still get email, but if I try to SEND and email, it neither reaches the recipient, nor does the email end up in the "Sent" mail folder. When I go to "Accounts and Sync" and look at the Exchange account, I also see that i have a sync protocol error on Contacts syncing.Now, I have installed Touchdown, and I CAN send email from here. Also, I have a friend who has an older Android phone that does not seem to be affected in a similar fashion connecting to the same exchange server.Problem: The Touchdown app is kind of a pain from a user interface standpoint when you try to edit a contact. and it costs $20. And, I really prefer the native Mail w

Sync with Outlook? - Page 6


Monday 09th of November 2009 / droidforums.net
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 / androidforums.com
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!
