Syncing iPhone with Work Outlook Email

Requested by some readers, here is

How to Sync Work Outlook Email to iPhone

The possibility to Sync iPhone with a work Outlook account depends if ActiveSync is active on your company Exchange server or not

Therefore, ask your IT admin if your company has Exchange ActiveSync installed and set up on their server to push Outlook Contacts, Calendar, Events, Emails and Notes to iPhone

If this is the case, ActiveSync should be working and you just need to set up your iPhone with Exchange as follows:

  • On your iPhone, tap Settings
  • Go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Add Account -> Microsoft Exchange
 

Notes and possible issues

There is unfortunately no solution so far to Sync iPhone with an Outlook professional inbox other than the "push" method described above

Syncing iPhone with Local and Exchange Contacts

A recurring issue reported by several readers, Syncing iPhone Contacts with both local and Microsoft Exchange Contacts just requires a few easy steps

The workaround is to Resync iPhone Contacts by turning off syncing and then Resync iPhone with Exchange Contacts

  • On your iPhone, go to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Account
  • Turn OFF syncing for Contacts
  • Choose to remove or keep the Contacts on your iPhone depending on what you want to do. Ideally, you'd want to delete Contacts on your iPhone, but if you want to keep them, that's fine too
  • To resync Contacts, repeat the above steps and turn syncing back ON
  • Tap Contacts on your iPhone and your Contacts should show up. If they don't, click Groups in the upper-left corner and All Contacts

From now on, you should be able to sync iPhone Contacts with MS Exchange without duplicates or missing local Contacts


Notes & possible issues

The same procedures allows to Resync iPhone with MobileMe Contacts

Syncing an iPhone with another

This solution also works to Synchronize iPhone and iPad, two iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone, etc

As seen in a previous post, there's no problem Syncing several iPhones to a single Computer / iTunes

The problem starts when you try to Transfer Music from one iPhone to another

This would be easy if we could just Copy Songs from an iPhone to iTunes and then Synchronize another iPhone with iTunes

But, as explained in our Sync iPhone to iTunes tutorial, iPhone to iTunes transfers are not possible using iTunes


The solution:

First Import Music from iPhone to iTunes with a dedicated software

Then, Synchronize a second iPhone with iTunes, which, at the end equals to Transferring Songs from one iPhone to another

 

Just follow these steps


Notes & possible issues

  • This solution transfers all personal settings between two iPhones: playlists, ratings and so on ( see complete list )
     

    So, that's a very safe way to fully Synchronize two iPhones

Syncing iPhone Photos both ways from & to computer

Definitely one of the poorest iTunes features is the way it handles Pictures

Whether you want to:

  • Get Photos off iPhone
  • Download Photos to iPhone
  • Transfer Pictures from iPhone to Computer
  • Copy Photos from iPhone to PC
  • Add Photos to iPhone
  • Delete / Remove / Erase Photos individually from iPhone
  • etc...

iTunes is way too limited

What we need is a visual interface with thumbnails we can drag between iPhone Albums and Computer Folders

We've been looking around for a long time and tested all possible iPhone Photo Management softwares
Most were disappointing until we bumped into a pretty cool piece of software

It's a two-sided Program, which clearly shows iPhone Photographs on one side and Computer Pictures on the other

You can move, drag photos both ways from Computer to iPhone and the other way round, create Photo Albums, rename and edit existing ones, etc...

Give it a try and let us know what you think by dropping comments below


Notes & possible issues

  • This solution works for all iPod, including iPod Touch, iPhone 4 and iPad
