Will soon get a new Win Phone.
Don't want my Outlook data synced to the cloud.
Want only local sync between phone & my PC.
Years back, when Microsoft started to require Sync-to-the-Cloud-by-defau
lt for Outlook on PC & Winphone folks realized a workaround.
"If I go to settings->email+accounts and change the server to 127.0.0.1 (local host) contacts etc. aren't synced, and stored on the handset. "
Is this still true? What I want to do is sync the data in my PC Outlook with ONLY the phone. So that, my Outlook information isn't in the cloud, or passed to the cloud. Move the data from my PC to the phone via a plain old USB cable. Seems like this strategy above says that's possible?
Need an answer from someone who's successfully tried this, or any other workaround that achieves the same thing.
