sync phone outlook control

Hi for ages i've been trying to control what is Sync'd when I connect my mobile phone to my computer.

Most annoying problem is all my Mobile Phone numbers end up in Outlook Contacts many with no email addresses

To solve this issue do the following:-

1. Set a Company name for each entry you want to go to Outlook
2. Leave Company Name blank for any which you do not want synchronized
3. Connect the Phone either Wired or Wireless and run the sync
4. Now Open Outlook
5. Click Contacts
6. Click View --> Current View --> Phone List

Change Contact View

7. Click Company (this sorts on the field and put all the blanks entries at the top)
8. Now click on the first blank Entry
9. Scroll down to the Last blank Company (or other field e.g E-mail)
10. Hold down the SHIFT key on your keyboard
11. Click the Last blank entry (this highlights all the entries you do not require)
12. Let go of the shift key
13. Press the delete key to delete the unwanted contacts

Change Contact View

You can use any other field for example all those without an email address,
by changing the view and adding the email address like this:-

Change Contact View

Add E-mail View

Now click on E-mail and follow steps 8 to 13 above

Hopefully someone will design a good sync which includes a synchronise flag in the near future to avoid these extra steps
