How to Fix iPhone X to Sync Outlook Calendar and Contacts without using Exchange, iCloud or Google

With iPhone X, we finally enter the era where phones are REALLY more expensive than computers.

More importantly, we enter an era where every phone vendor is REALLY making money farming your data on the phone. Every service, and every piece of information on the phone, including your location as you move around, and your browser history, is considered free fodder for the vendors to consolidate and sell to the highest bidder.

One thing you can do, is turn off all the public information settings. Set your phoen to private, deny any information gathering by Microsoft, Apple and Google. Go into your account on each of these services and turn on the privacy settings.

Finally, and most importantly, don’t use iCloud, Exchange or Google to transfer your valuable company information to your phone. CompanionLink provides a great alternative. CompanionLink is dedicated to keeping your data private, and also making it easy to sync to your phone. With CompanionLink software, you can use USB, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and DejaCloud sync to send data directly from your PC to your Phone without hitting any cloud service that farms the data for profit.

On the phone, we feature DejaOffice CRM App. This is an App we wrote, because our perception is that phone calendars are feeble. On the iPhone, the month view doesn’t show you anything about your data except a dot. On the iPhone, to see a week schedule you have to turn the phone sideways. On the iPhone, if your appointment rings and you are away from the phone, there’s nothing further to remind you, until you are way too late for your meeting. With DejaOffice, Day, week and month views have all your data, and are just one tap away. With DejaOffice, persistent alarms make sure you get notified when you get back to your desk, so you don’t miss your meeting. With DejaOffice, when you go on a trip, your calendar doesn’t go haywire the minute you land in a different time zone.

DejaOffice is free to try. Just download from the Apple App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dejaoffice-crm-with-pc-sync/id364736446?mt=8

How to Sync Outlook Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Notes with iPhone 6s

There seems no end to sync solutions for iPhone.  The problem is; they all devolve into Apple-like simplicity.

Face it.  We use Outlook because it is fast, effective, and the whole world supports it.  It is forced on us by our business, it runs our mail, it runs our appointments, and the less time we can spend there, the more we can do our jobs.

With iPhone, the best known solutions are feeble, at best.  With Apple iCloud, you need to create a different Outlook folder and move your data to it.  You need to put up with problems with it, with mail and other things.  And then, when it gets to iPhone, you have no Tasks any more just reminders.

With Office 365 and the Outlook App you have a different set of problems.  It all gets to the phone ok (except for tasks again) but the only thing that is marginally good with the Outlook App from Microsoft is the email.  Hello Microsoft:  Email is NOT a problem on the iPhone.

So that’s what CompanionLink and DejaOffice are here to do. Synchronize Outlook Contacts, and Outlook Calendar, and Outlook Tasks to the iPhone.  Not only to move them, safely and securely, but DejaOffice provides an Outlook-like ecosystem on the iPhone and Android so that you can continue to do Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Notes just like your PC.  So if you want to schedule an appointment, or make a task for a contact, you can do that in one App on your phone.  If you have Recurring Tasks, CompanionLink and DejaOffice is the only solution available that supports them on all platforms.

CompanionLink also works for Outlook for Mac 2011 and Outlook for Mac 2015.

Here’s how to sync Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Memos:

  1. On your PC or Mac; Download the CompanionLink for Outlook 14-day trial
  2. On your iPhone or Android phone, download DejaOffice for Outlook
  3. Set up USB, Wi-Fi or DejaCloud sync

That’s it!  You’ll have your data on your phone.  For more information here’s our info page for CompanionLink for Outlook.
