    Welcome to Android Central! I think the S5 needs Kies 3: Kies Support

    I urge you to avoid Kies if at all possible. It bungled up my stuff and I heard similar stories from friends. If you do use it -- back up everything. I opted to go with a different software program.

    Can you tell us which program you used?

    My piece of advice would be to migrate all contacts to Google Contacts in the cloud. They're tightly integrated with the phone and sync automatically, and they also remain safe in the cloud if something happens to the phone.

    I use "gSyncit" http://www.fieldstonsoftware.com/ it syncs both ways, and all of my devices are in sync.

    I use AkrutoSync. Automatically Sync Outlook Across All Devices | AkrutoSync What I like about it is that it syncs other devices that aren't Android. Hope the sky doesn't come crashing because I dared mention I have a non-Android device

    The only way I could get my Outlook.com contacts to sync correctly with my Droid Turbo 2 is to:

    1. Use the default email client, and set up a corporate account.

    2. Or use the Nine app from the Google Play store which costs $9.95 after a free 10 day trial.

    The official Outlook app is a DISASTER as far as contact syncing. I also found that if one has the same outlook.com account attached in more than one app, then contact syncing is also a disaster.

    It appears to me, that the built in Google EAS sync is seriously flawed as someone told me in another forum that Google won't give 3rd party apps permission to use its EAS sync. Shame, Shame on Google if that is the case....
