EVO & HTC Sync
Has anyone with an EVO been able to sync Outlook Contact & Calendar successfully? I can not even get my EVO to connect to HTC Sync. It keeps saying that its disconnected while its connected via USB. I can mount as a drive, and it that works, but just cant get HTC Sync to work. Has anyone got theirs to work?

maybe this will help
I was having the same problem, so what I did was install the HTC SYNC that is stored on the SD Card that came with your evo. When you hook up your evo to your computer choose the option to use the "mount as drive", then install the HTC SYNC to your computer. When done, disconnect your EVO, then open HTC SYNC. Then connect your EVO and it should open up. Hope this helps.

Try rebooting also. When I first tried to connect there was some driver wizard open from during the install and until I cancelled out of that, the phone device would not show up.
I downloaded 2.0.33 from HTC (I was told 2.0.31 was on the card, but I formatted that. OOPS!) and that worked fine also. Before I did the sync I adjusted the settings and rules to sync calendar and contacts.

I tried it on a 2nd PC and it will connect, but it keeps wanting to sync with Outlook Express, and not Outlook. I cant figure out how to get it to switch to outlook either, because its not listed in the options to sync with (in manual settings). Starting to get aggravated...

I didn't see your post which was earlier yesterday. I don't know if you saw my post on the HTC Sync program. HTC posted a new version for the EVO 4G.
My post was named: HTC Sync for the HTC EVO 4G now available
Here is the link to the HTC link:
HTC Mobile Phone Support - HTC EVOâ„¢ 4G (Sprint) - Downloads
The second PC i mentioned still can not find Outlook. It only will sync with Microsoft Address Book (outlook express) which I do not use.
Anyone have any ideas? I am fairly computer savvy so its not like I don't know what I am doing.

I'm having similar problems as Lugnut, whereas my Evo is unable to find HTC Sync on my PC. I have followed instructions exactly as posted from many of you but I have no luck. I'm running on Vista 32-bit OS on my PC and have installed HTC Sync v:2.0.35
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Now my 2nd PC that does recognize the phone, what you described is correct, but I only sees Windows Address Book, and not the Outlook Address Book. I dont understand why it would find one and not the other.
Thanks for trying to help.

Here is the link. It seems some people are getting working and some are not.

I just want to mention real quick that CompanionLink can sync tasks and notes as well as the contacts and calendar. We fully support sync with the EVO 4G from Outlook, as well as ACT!, Lotus Notes, Palm Desktop and more. Check out all the sync options at www.companionlink.com/phones/htc-evo-4g.html
