I usually store the contact of business partners in my computer outlook contact folder, without these contacts being synced on the phone making my phone to be half useful for my day to day work! It took me a while to try different methods, finally I work out a recipe to get this contact sync working.
In order to have this outlook contact synced to the phone, I had to add also the Gmail work Exchange email onto Gmail. I would still use the outlook Exchange client to view my email and calendar, but the Gmail exchange client would create the work Exchange contact list on the phone and being able to sync what I have on work outlook contact list onto the phone.
You just need to go into your Gmail setting, and add the outlook exchange. Using the Exchange credentials and instruction provided by your company:
click the GMail top left BARselect SettingsClick Add Account
select Exchange...Enter your email then select Manual...
use your company instruction to fill in here
Please let me know if you have any issue or you have a better way doing this.
Enjoy & Bye for now.
