    You can get commercial software that will sync contacts and calendar
    with Outlook for almost any phone. An example of such an app is
    DataPilot.

    I do strongly recommend you examine what the phone does for the
    calendaring and contacts.

    As one example, the Audiovox CDM8900 only allows 3 user editable
    groups (aka categories) and has 5 fixed number types. (That means
    for example you can't have a home2 unless you stick the number
    in another field such as the one labelled fax). The calendar
    is a joke, basically being a list of meetings. There is no
    facility for repeats.

    As another example, the LG phones have 5 number spaces, any
    one of which can be of 10 different types (eg home, work, home2).
    The calendar does have repeats, but you can't set the end date
    via the phone UI. You can have exceptions (eg if one instance
    of a repeating event is cancelled or changed).
