Oh Man…. why do I always convince myself that putting on the latest version of software is a good thing… Too used to patching I presume.
Tonight, I upgraded from Nokia PC Sync 6.4 to the new 6.6 version. I thought to myself that this would be an easy process, and in Nokia’s defence it has been in the past. But then the trouble started.
I synced up with Outlook 2003, and to my amazement only 83 of my 500+ contacts transferred to the phone. So, I deleted the contacts on the phone, and even setup a new sync profile but still no joy. I then Googled this thread and saw I was not the only one with the issue. I tell ya, I agree with some of the posters on that forum… never again will I get one of these phones with this OS. Smart Phones for me all the way 🙂
Anyway, the answer to the contact issue is to export your contacts from outlook to an Access Database (must be that format for some reason), then delete the contacts and re-import back to outlook. (I used the default mapping for export and import). Then all works again.
I do hope that Nokia pull the finger out and patch this issue.
