First thing we need to do is export the Contacts:

  1. In Outlook, on the File menu, click Import and Export.
  2. Click Export to a file, and then click Next.
  3. Click Comma Separated Values (Windows), and then click Next.
  4. In the folder list, click the Contacts folder, and then click Next.
  5. Browse to the folder where you want to save the contacts as a .csv file.
  6. Type a name for the exported file, and then click OK.
  7. Click Next.
  8. Click Finish.

Now lets get them imported to your Gmail account so they sync automatically with your Android Device:

  1. Log into with the same Google Account that is on your Android Device.
  2. Click on the "Contacts" link in the top left under the Google logo.
  3. Click on More Actions.
  4. Click Import.
  5. Now choose the file you just exported from Outlook.
  6. Thats it!

Now open your Android devices Settings so we can make sure they will be synced to the device.

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Choose Accounts & Sync
  3. Make sure both Background Data and Auto-Sync are enabled
  4. Now click on the Google account in the list and make sure that the contacts are enabled in the options for that account.

Thats it! All your contacts will now sync to your Android Device.

You need to log into on your computer, to do this(in case you weren't).


If you are on the computer, then on at the top left you will see a Gmail logo. under that it will say "Mail" if you click there you will get the option to choose Contacts.
