I cn not longer sync my contacts and calendar with Outlook since 3.16.651 update was installed. Is there a change in the desktop software needed. I use the sync manager and not the media manager as I only want to sync/backup all my contacts and calender entries. Now the phone is never recognized by the program since the update.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Is this through an Exchange Server? It's possible that Exchange just hasn't been updated yet to include the new Syncing protocols introduced on the Jelly Bean update. Used to happen to me all the time before I stopped allowing it to sync.
No exchange server is involved. This is simple outlook, but I dot not use outlook for email only to sync my contacts and calendar with my phone.
Then it could be that the phone now uses MTP exclusively. Previously, the phone supported both UMS and MTP but in the past update, they removed the USM functionality. It seemed to break compatibility for allot of people who's PC's, cars, or other that don't have support for MTP.
See if there is an update for MTP for your system. You may also want to go to your drivers section and remove all the HTC related drivers and then connect your phone so it can find the new correct drivers.
I have updated the drivers and htc sync manager does see my phone and wants to sync music and photos, but I have no interest in syncing music and photos. I just want to sync contacts and calendar with outlook. Based on other posts in this forum I am not the only one having this problem. Either HTC or Sprint or both is not being responcive to user concerns. HTC sync manager just updated to a new version on my PC and It still does not offer syncing for contacts or calendar. Only the HTC Sync program will do that, but it does not recognize the phone anymore.
Probably has to do with the whole UMS to MTP change that took place. It's looking like we may have to wait for an update of either the Phone or the HTC Sync software.
Hopefully something comes soon.
I have been able to successfully sync to my laptop but not to my desktop. The key issue to me appears to be that I had to make Outlook the default mail app. I removed all HTC apps. Downloaded the latest sync manager, made oultook my default mail app and I can sync to my laptop which uses MS Office 2010 Pro. My desktop uses Office 2003. but the HTC website indicates that 2003 is supported. Both computers are heavy duty, high performance, Win7 x64 systems with lots of RAM and HD space. I do not use Outlook for mail, I am a Thunderbird user on my computers. I have not done anymore work on trying to get the desktop to work since I had other priorities and I now have my contacts and pictures backed up which was the key issue. I also do not use the gmail app on the phone even though all my mail is in gmail. There is one stupid, IMHO, feature that can be turned off on the web, but not on the phone and that is conversation mode. I hate that mode. I can never find old messages that I need with that feature.I use the HTC mail app which works great.
