    In active sync, go to tools> options and from there you can set the preference to be the contacts on the phone.

    I am currently having problems syncing my contacts list. On my phone under the active sync menu the contact setting is unavailable to me. Is this because I have outlook express? The basic task I am trying to accomplish is to transfer my contacts to a new Q. Any help would be appreciated, and I'm sorry if this has been answered. I didn't find anything relevant in my search terms.

    If you're simply trying to transfer your contacts to a new Q you can just copy the PIM.VOL file on your existing Q to your storage card, pop the storage card into your new Q, and overwrite the PIM.VOL file on your new Q with your copy on the storage card.

    I guess that would be my first problem. Where do I find this PIM.VOL file? Also, how do I over ride the file on the new phone?

    yeah, the pim.vol file is in the root directory of the Q. this file containsyour contacts and calendar info too. all ur doing is simply copying it to your storage card, then copy it back from storage card to the new Q..it will overwrite the pim.vol file on the new Q with ur copy from the storage card.
