Android / Exchange ActiveSync one-way sync possible?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This guy at work has a billion contacts on his phone that he doesn't want synced to his Exchange account. However he does want people he adds to Outlook synced to his phone. In other words he wants one-way sync from Exchange to his phone for contacts only.
He has a Verizon Droid Thunderbolt.
Is that possible, either out of the box or via some kind of app? Since I'm the help desk for the company and he asked me, I poked around both on the phone and online but didn't find anything.
Does anybody know anything? smile.gif
Thanks.

When creating contacts on the phone, you can tell them whether you want them created on the Exchange account or not. After adding the exchange account, it should not take your previously created contacts to exchange, but it will take outlook contacts and add them to the phone. We do this to our client droids all the time.

That's a start I guess. I don't have the phone in hand right now, but what if there already are tons of contacts on the phone? I'm talking hundreds.

From the phones I've dealt with, those contacts do not get transferred to the Exchange server, they stay only on the phone. Those previous contacts are synced to a google account, and will not be synced to Exchange.

Alright, I'll just have to try it and see what happens. Thanks!
