This is the ACT! 6 and earlier area... next time, you might use the ACT! area :-)

 

To answer your question, there are a number of ways. I usually recommend Handheld Contact  which has 3 editions depending on the functions you want.

 

The Professional version is the most ACT!-like and will  keep your ACT! contacts seperate from your Outlook ones.

 

There are also 2 cheaper ones that sync to the same address book as Outlook and lets you choose how to handle the contacts already there

In that case, you might try www.CompanionLink.com - but you may want to stop syncing Outlook as syncing 2 systems to the standard PIM can sometimes cause problems.

I find it interesting that act will not sync with my treo pro unless I use third party solutions which means spending more money...I have used Act for over 20 years...I was considering upgrading to 2010 ver.....maybe I should just keep using outlook...it works just fine with my contacts info...just not as robust on the calender end...thanks for your assistance...have an awesome day!

There is the free ACT!Link for PocketPC... but the one with ACT! 2006 won't work with the current versions of PocketPC, and the other methods I have mentioned are both more reliable and with more features.

 

Also, Handheld Contact Entry Edition doesn't cost more money... it's free.
