Synchronize with multiple Outlook contact folders

New 9300 - have discovered that synch only considers the default Outlook Contacts folder - I have multiple folders for contacts on my PC and wish to synchronize these with different contact databases on the 9300 - i think it is impossible. Disappointed with limited functionality. Any one have any luck??

No can do (not with today's Nokia PC Suite, at least).

Hi,

This is actually possible except for some bugs that prevent it from happening.

I had been trying to do this for months. After no repsonses on forums i begun my own experimentations and after days of toiliing on this I figured out that you can actually define different synchronisation profiles on your 9300/9500 and in so doing you are able to create multiple and distinct Contacts DB (by default they are on the memory card which is good - however they show up in your contacts program as seperate DB's)

THe most irritating thing here is that the PHONE does not sync with anything other than the default profile - OR it just does not sync if u change settings.

My conclusion was that this is possible in theory but some unfixed bugs are not allowing this to work in practice.

How irritating it is....

Jass
