I just purchased the new Lumia 710 and I am coming from a blackberry where i could synchronize my calendar from my PC to my phone. I can't figure out how to do this on the Lumia 710. I have read through everything. The Zume seems to just be for music, data, etc. any help?
Take a look here. It is a common question.
This one is probably what you want.
Unfortunately; you will discover as I did when I purchased my HTC Radar, that all Windows Phone 7 devices don’t have Outlook desktop direct sync that was available in all previous Windows phones.
The only option available now is to push your contact data to the cloud and then sync it with your phone. There are some restrictions on contacts, notes and other areas that I read on one support site. I didn't save the link so I'm not able to share it with you.
I was not interested in pushing my data to the cloud so I had to return the phone to T-Mobile before the 21 days passed. It’s unfortunate because I really liked the phone. I'm still baffled by Microsoft’s decision to drop a future they had in all previous Windows phones just to compete with the likes of Google on the cloud. But even Android and iPhone devices have sync solutions with Outlook desktop, and now I’m considering one of those devices or a blackberry phone, and I was such a loyal Windows Mobile customer who waited for months to get a new Windows Phone 7 device! Way to take care of your customers Microsoft!
yes you can sychronize with outlook but a nice and easy way after doing this is to make your calendar active on the Windows Live website from there it will synchronize staight to your phone just by typing in the information.
install the Outlook connector for windows live on your computer, It will keep your outlook and windows live account syncronized.
Yes you can, felipefaccini has the right answear.

The explanation for this was in the initial 10 February 2010 announcement of what was then called "Windows Phone 7 Series" by Steve Ballmer and Joe Belfiore. It was a long presentation, but in a nut shell Windows Phone 7 is not the next version of Windows Mobile; it doesn't inherit the code, functionality, behavior, or UI of Windows Mobile but is an implementation of a new Mobile solution. With updated versions of Windows Mobile code from previous generations would often be carried over, so over the 10 year life of Windows Mobile it accumulated a lot of functionality. For Windows Phone they started over again from Square 1
What was available with the first hardware in September of 2010 represents about 2 years of hardware development, operating system design and development, and efforts from other third parties and software developers. According to Microsoft representatives they could not re-implement the 10 years of functionality that Windows Mobile had within the 2 year period. So they prioritized the features and functionality that they wanted to have. Because of the growing interest in cloud based technologies it won out as the synchronization technology of choice.
If you are interested in seeing local syncing (or some other feature) I would suggest going to Microsoft's User Voice forum for Windows Phone and voting the feature up.
