How do I Sync Contacts and Contact Groups using Kies 2.6?

You can sync the contacts between your computer and your device. You can sync contacts to Microsoft® Outlook® or the Windows® Address Book on computers running Windows.

    Kies 2.6 is only available for use on a Windows® platform.  

    Only contacts saved locally on your device will be synchronized with your computer. Contacts synchronized to your device from your Google™ Account or other online services will not be synchronized with your computer.
