Hello.

 

I started using an iPhone recently and, with a little help, got it syncing my calendar and contacts with Outlook 2007 through iTunes - perfect!  I just upgraded to Office 365 and now I'm unable to get anything in Outlook 365 to sync.  Can I still use iTunes for this or do I have to use iCloud?  If so, some advice on how to set this up would be appreciated.

Thanks and regards

Andy

What kind of Office 365 account do you have? Personal? Or a business account? And if a business account, which kind?

I ask because certain Office 365 account types offer the ability to setup an Exchange server account on your iPhone…I believe. This would give you email plus contacts and calendars in the iOS default apps directly sync with Office 365. I am not sure if a personal account does this.

Here are some instructions:

The other alternative is to use the OWA for iPhone app. At a minimum, your contacts will be in the OWA app, but I believe there is a way to then sync those contacts with your iPhone contacts.

I don't know if any of this helps.

Thanks you for your contribution to this - it's appreciated.  In the meantime, however, I've been playing with iCloud and have somehow managed to get the desired result that way, so I'm doing OK (for now, anyway!)

Thanks again

Andy
