What's the best way to keep my contacts in sync between Outlook (Exchange), my free GMail account, and my Windows Mobile phone? Ideally I'd like to be able to make a change in any of these places and have it sync to the others. If that's not possible my preference would be to do all editing in Outlook.

Update: Sorry, forgot to mention that I can't use Google's ActiveSync option with the phone because I need to sync mail & calendar with my office's Exchange server. I'm just looking for a way to keep contacts in sync.

I have used Soocial to sync Outlook and Google Mail Contacts with good results. Since your phone syncs to your Outlook/Exchange contacts, it gets updated as well.

This looks like the ticket. Thanks –  Mike Powell Sep 8 '09 at 17:59

This should have all you need from the Google to Windows Mobile side http://www.google.com/support/mobile/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=138636

Google now offers all the functionality that you're looking for:

You can setup WM to sync directly to google. (use this all the time)

And a similar system for syncing directly to Outlook (haven't used this)

Isn't Google Apps sync (your second link) only for Google Apps customers? I'm only running a free GMail account. –  Mike Powell Jul 15 '09 at 16:15
    
Looks like it is. I'm not used to Google Apps users getting extrea features, normally we get the short end of the stick :) –  Auxonic Jul 16 '09 at 0:16

There is a registry setting that you can change to allow it to sync with multiple Exchange accounts. When my ATT Tilt (HTC something or other) was running WinMo 6 it worked like a charm. When I updated using HTC's 6.1 ROM, I've had odd issues...

Here's where I found the information. (I think... doesn't seem to want to come up here at work today)
