Unless your phones PC connectivity solution comes with this capability (Sony Ericsson’s software does not as as Jan 2011), you have a long and rather complex option. However the Android Market has software that can do this, but they are not free.
- Save the outlook contacts as a CSV. Problem, outlook cannot do that, and I had to track down a tool that worked as an outlook add-on but was very low on usability (You have to select each field you need).
- You then need to go to gmail and import the contacts
- Then you need sync the contacts from gmail to your phone
- However there is a bug, that some of the contacts have wrong phone no’s. However the CSV file has the correct no’s, so problems with the google import process 🙂
UPDATE: Not a bug but google mail contact importer does not support all fields in outlook, and also expects the names of the columns to match its. The best way is to create a sample contact in google and export it to get the format!
