    BitPim can be used to sync you LG phone with Outlook.

    First, download the latest version of BitPim here: Welcome to BitPim (try the test version if you have a newer phone)

    • Connect your phone to you computer using a USB data cable (or bluetooth) (make sure you have the proper drivers installed for you phone - The current LG USB Modem driver is here: http://www.lgmobilephones.com/upload..._4.9.4_All.exe
    • In BitPim go to Edit > Detect Phone - if BitPim can't detect your phone check to make sure BitPim can 'see' the phone - Select Settings and Browse to see what is showing up on the com ports - if your phone isn't showing up go to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager > Ports and see if there is an error. If there is you don't have the correct drivers installed.
    • Once you get your phone detected in BitPim go to Data > Get Phone Data
    • Select the data you want to import - in this case the phonebook
    • You should see data populate the PhoneBook area
    • Go to File > Export > vCards - save the file to somewhere known (like your desktop)
    • Open outlook - go to File > Import and Export
    • Choose "Import a VCARD file (.vcf) - Click Next
    • Select the previously saved BitPim file and 'Open'
    • Your contacts should import into Outlook

    A similar process can be done if you would like to sync your Calendar. Substitute vCard with vCalendar above.

    You can reverse the process by swapping the import and export from each program.

    If you have a new phone and want to load contacts in it from Outlook:

    • in BitPim select File > Import > Outlook Contacts / Calendar
    • Make sure to check Outlook to 'Allow' BitPim to access the data file
    • Format names if needed - confirm everything looks good
    • Data > Send Phone Data.

    At first I thought using BitPim would be hard I never thought it is as simple as 123

    I got a new LG Spyder II 840. Will this program allow me to sync with this phone as well? I did not see it on the list of phones.

    This sounds more like an import/export function where you have to choose items and/or the whole address book and manually transfer them.

    I have a PDA now that automatically syncs just the changes. For example, while my PDA is connected via USB cable I can add an Outlook calendar entry and that entry is automatically added to my PDA with ActiveSync. I am trying to find a phone that I can use the same way.

    Which way does BitPim work? Several of the LG phones look good to me if there is true syncing.

    That's the best info I found! So much for my carrier saying "You can't sync an LG VERSA with Outlook via USB connection". An afternoon of effort just saved me $120 a year for their wireless sync plan! Thanks for helping us less-techs out.

    Will this work with the LG P970 - it does not look like it is in the supported phones list.

    what do you do when the phonebook isn't a highlightable option as far as exporting contacts to the phone?
