Can't say enough about how disappointed my Window 7 Mobile phone is. Aside from the deficiencies it has with integrating with Ford's Sync system and it not responding to voice commands, I have now discovered that an contact that I added to my mobile phone is not replicated to my Outlook contacts. I do have an Exchange account, in fact I manage it. SO what is the magic here?

Okay - that's good news as I can point you to my article if necessary!

Do you have other mobile phones working with the Exchange 2003 server and are they working 100% happily?

I have discovered the problem. A few weeks ago, I ran into a former colleague of mine. I had them enter their new contact info into my phone and figured it would sync with my Outlook account. However, it never did and I discovered that the reason for this is that my colleague had entered their contact info as a Windows Live contact and not an Outlook contact.

Evidently, when the info was entered, the account was defaulted to Windows Live. I just checked my phone and it has defaulted to my Exchange account, but I think it just defaults to the last account used when a contact was created.

At any rate - problem solved.
