Windows 7: Import Windows Contacts to Outlook

Import Windows Contacts to Outlook

Basically here is my situation, I had an iPhone, I hate Apple, so I'm using the new Touch Pro 2 and I love it!

However, I'm trying to get all my contact on there, around 300, and they are all stored in the "C:\Users\{User}\Contacts" folder. I need to get them to sync with the Mobile Device Center. The only way I know to do this is to put the contacts in Outlook 2007.

If you have a better mouse trap or know how I can do this, please chime in.

Thanks SF.

check the contacts folder on import

I had the same problem. Evidently you have to specifically check the folder that you want to import from the .pst file. So I did one import and go my archived data, but no sent or received. Then I did it again and chose sent. It worked. But no received, so I did it again and it worked. But no contacts. I did it again and chose contacts. It worked. Be careful to correctly select import duplicates or not and to correctly choose the existing personal folder to import into or you will get a duplicate personal folder in the list (its ok, you can delete it). In the end it was simple and I just needed to pay more attention to what I was doing. My fault for doing it at 3 am! -S
