Re: sony pc companion

So i'm thinking, seems no one is willing to reply, i'll have to go back to a Samsung Galaxy to get a free scyncronisation tool from my phone supplier, due to Sony pulling the plug on being able to safely back up your contacts and events????

Re: sony pc companion

I've just bought a Z5 Compact and can't believe there is no option in the Sony software to sync Outlook with the phone's calendar. Seriously? (I Googled it before purchase but unfortunately found instructions for the old PC Companion, which I thought meant this phone would suit my needs.) Up until this point it was looking like a really good replacement for my aging HTC, however, Sony could learn a few tricks from the HTC Sync app.

 

Anyway, has anyone found an app that will work?

Okay, this seems to work for me (using Windows 10 and Outlook2010) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fjsoft.myphoneexplorer.client

 

I've only just installed it, but it has imported my appointments into the Xperia calendar.

Re: sony pc companion

Yeah Sony removing features as per nor, wouldn't surprise me if they don't repackage that part of the software and start selling the sync option as an extra, I'll be ditching the xperia and going back to a Samsung so i can have a free sync utility again.

Re: sony pc companion

Is there a way to just show the entered appointments in the Xperia calendar? My HTC had an "Agenda" option that would bring up all appointments in list format organised in date sequence.

thank you for the https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fjsoft.myphoneexplorer.client info, works a charm, actually a huge improvement on the older sony sync software.

Re: sony pc companion

It seems like a good app. I'm impressed it can sync over wifi at home - no need to plug the phone via USB.

 

Now I just need to work out how to view the appointments in a sequential list format, instead of having to check each marked day via the monthly calendar.

Re: Sony PC companion - Elm: no more Outlook Synchronization?

Hi @Teleski,

 

We are now using Xperia Companion instead of PC Companion. However, Xperia Companion does not support the Sony Ericsson Elm or sync with Microsoft Outlook. We do currently not have an alternative that allows you to do this with the Sony Ericsson Elm. Apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
