contacts transfer Gigaset software quicksync sync outlook contacts
If you own one of the Siemens Gigaset range of phones with bluetooth functionality, namely the SL565, SL375 and S685, then you may be happy to hear that there is now a quick sync software.
This allows for fast and easy synchronisation of your PC address book with your Gigaset phone.
There are a couple of ways to transfer the data, via bluetooth or a data cable. This easy to use software allows you to easily transfer and sync your addresses/contacts from Microsoft outlook or Windows Mail (in Vista) to your Gigaset phone.
The following programs are supported
Vista Contacts, Windows ® Address book, Outlook ® 2000, 2002, 2003 and Outlook ® 2007
Unfortunately, it cannot be used on a Mac at the moment.
That’s not all – you can even download images, ringtones and screensavers too from your PC to the Gigaset handset. This software is available free to download here. Please click here to download the 2.1MB zip file.
I have now finally managed to connect the phone to a pc by buying a usb bluetooth gadget.
Now I find that the transfer software trashes the numbers as it transfers them from Outloook 2003.
Yep – it insists that you enter an area code and an international dial code (in US format) before syncing – it then trashes the beginning of all of your numbers with a random 5 digits of these codes.
What is the point of having bluetooth or transfer software if it trashes all of your numbers. I am sick sick sick of typing numbers into these stupid DECT phones. What a waste of money for the bluetooth capability.
I have managed to get the Quicksync Software working on Windows 7, Just install it on a XP on Vista machine and copy the install directory C:\Program Files\Gigaset Quicksync to you Windows 7 machine, create short cuts and install the driver in the C:\Program Files\Gigaset Quicksync\Gigaset handset generic USB driver 32bit folder and thats it.
If you don’t have a Windows XP/Vista machine handy then install Virtual PC on you Windows 7 machine, more dertails here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx
Got my Great looking new SL785, but when I sync it leaves some contacts off the phone. They show up in the list when I go to filter mode. Even shows the numbers it says will transfer over, then NOTHING on the phone. Can anyone help me with this? It is looking like it is the contacts with multiple numbers, but id picked the top three, which I’m good with in the filter, but still not copying them. I’m using the newest version 4.2 and new firmware update. Also, anyone know how to sort phonebook by first name??? Thanks in advance. Bull
I bought the Gigaset S79H with USB connector in the expectation to copy the addressbook directly to the phone.
The problem is, that I’m a Linux User and there is no Linux support for QuickSync .
Why they couldn’t implement a simple usb-filesystem on the phone, which could be mounted to Linux, Mac or windows (every USB Memorystick work in this way)!
Is there a plan to support a Linux version ?
I managed to load the content of the phone book to my linux computer using obexftp and the script shown below. Up to now I did not try to write the phonebook back, but presumably it works in a similar way (replace -g by -p).
echo ‘ATZ’ > /dev/ttyACM0
echo ‘AT^SQWE=3′ > /dev/ttyACM0
obexftp -t /dev/ttyACM0 -H -S -g “/telecom/pb.vcf”
echo “+++” > /dev/ttyACM0
echo “ATZ” > /dev/ttyACM0
I am using the Gigaset SL 400.
I am on Mac running Mac OS 10.6.6 and QuickSync 1.3.0
I am facing many issues syncing this phone even if the first time it worked well. Could you help me with the international code and the area code.
Thanks in advance,
