Sync the Samsung Galaxy S Series with your PC – Sync with the Vibrant, Captivate, Fascinate, and Epic 4G

Samsung recently announced that their Android-powered Galaxy S Series of smartphones will be available in unique flavors for the major U.S. carriers. The Samsung Vibrant is available on T-Mobile, and the Samsung Captivate just launched on AT&T. The Samsung Fascinate will soon be available on Verizon, and Sprint is planning the launch of their second 4G phone – the Samsung Epic 4G. All four of these devices pack some mighty powerful hardware, but unfortunately lack an easy way to sync with Microsoft Outlook and other PC applications.

How to sync the Motorola DROID X with Outlook

Sync the DROID X with your PC

The new Motorola DROID X, available today, rightly deserves its position is Verizon’s new flagship phone. The DROID X features a huge 4.3″ screen, a lightning-fast 1 GHz processor, an 8 megapixel camera, and it runs Android 2.1. With all these amazing features, it’s a bit surprising to learn that the DROID X does not include any way to sync with Microsoft Outlook out of the box.

Google provides a free tool called Google Calendar Sync that syncs Outlook calendars to any Google account. The DROID X can be configured to then automatically sync with that Google account. However, Google Calendar Sync is a bit limited, as it only supports the primary Outlook calendar, and does not include data range options or Outlook categories support.

CompanionLink is proud to offer two ways to sync Outlook with the DROID X. Sync contacts, calendar and tasks wireless via a Google account, or sync Outlook contacts, calendar, tasks and notes to the DROID X direct via USB. Both options support two-way sync, so that changes made on the phone will update in Outlook.

CompanionLink’s sync solutions for the DROID X works in conjunction with an Android app called DejaOffice. DejaOffice is a robust suite of business-class contacts, calendar, tasks and notes apps for Android. It features advanced functionality such as color-coded categories, search and sort by company name, linking calendar entries to contacts and much more. DejaOffice is a free download from the Android Market.

CompanionLink’s sync solutions for the Motorola DROID X begin at $39.95. More information, including a 14-day free trial, is available at www.companionlink.com/droidx

Sync the Samsung Intercept with Outlook

Samsung’s newest Android device, the Intercept, is now available on Sprint. With the Android platform, the Samsung Intercept provides users advanced functionality through the many applications available on the Android market. However, one area where the Intercept needs a little help is with Outlook synchronization. CompanionLink offers two ways to sync the Samsung Internet with Microsoft Outlook – wired USB sync and wireless sync through Google.

Sync the Samsung Intercept with Outlook

Direct USB sync with the Samsung Intercept works in tandem with an Android app called DejaOffice, which provides business-class address book, calendar, tasks and notes apps. Data transfers two-ways between Outlook and DejaOffice using the USB cable that comes with Samsung Intercept.

Wireless sync through Google relies on the built-in integration the Samsung Intercept has with Google Contacts and Google Calendar. CompanionLink synchronizes Outlook contacts, calendar and tasks to Google, which then synchronizes over-the-air to the Intercept. Changes made on phone will sync back to Google, and then to the PC using CompanionLink.

In addition to Microsoft Outlook, CompanionLink supports other PC software such as Lotus Notes, ACT! by Sage, Palm Desktop, GoldMine and others. CompanionLink’s sync solutions for the Samsung Intercept start at $39.95. More information and a 14-day free trial are available at www.companionlink.com/phones/samsung-intercept.html

How to get subscription-free wireless sync between ACT! and your phone

Need your ACT! data on your phone?  Don’t want to pay monthly fees to get it there?  Here’s how to do it.

Sync ACT! to Google to phones

Using a Google or Gmail account and CompanionLink, you can get subscription-free wireless sync between ACT! and BlackBerry, Android, iPhone, iPad, Windows Mobile, and Palm devices. This is possible courtesy of a free over-the-air sync service called Google Sync (offered by Google).

Total cost: $49.95, one-time.  (Free phone support included)

How to set it up:

1. Download a free 14-day evaluation version of CompanionLink Express.

2. Create a free Google/Gmail account, if you don’t already have one.

3. Configure CompanionLink Express to sync ACT! to your Google/Gmail account.
(Here’s a video that shows you how.)

4. If you want to sync with an iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, or Windows Mobile device, set up the free Google Sync service with your device.  If you have an Android or Palm webOS device you don’t need to set up Google Sync because those devices automatically sync with your Google account.

That’s all there is to it.  We have setup guides and free support if you need it.  Happy syncing!
