Can Android or iPhone sync my computer's Outlook Contacts and Appointments?

By JADavis9 ·
My last 6 phones have always been Windows smartphones so that they could ActiveSync with my Outlook. I'm lazy and want everything the same everywhere without needing to enter stuff twice.
So since my son just got a job in sales at a Sprint store and they don't carry Windows phone and he tells me that their system can't support a Windows phone, I've not been able to get myself to leave T-Mobile and move over to Sprint.
So, can stuff sync all of the time if I switch to using an Android or an iPhone or would it only allow me to import those things when I was first setting up a new phone if I switched to one and went with Sprint?

Don't think you can sync those anymore

If my memory is correct, Google dropped Active Sync type
support a couple of years ago, not sure if iPhone ever had
it, though there may be some app in their App Store.
Anyhow, neither sync with Outlook the way Windows Mobile
and Windows Phone used to. You may be able to use an
Outlook Online account to sort of sync an Android phone,
but that would mean going to the website on your phone,
not hooking up the USB cable and Active Sync automatically start up and find changes, additions, etc.

Exporting Outlook Contacts + Appointments

You export your Outlook contacts + appointments from your old Windows phone into a csv file. Once exported you can import them to either a Android or iPhone and your contacts + appointments will be there.
