How Do I sync contacts using Kies 2.6?

Last Update Date : Mar 22. 2018

Manage Contacts


Click Contacts below your device's name in the left panel to manage the contacts available on your device. You may need to select a tab at the top of the contacts list to display your contacts. There is a tab for contacts stored on your mobile device, contacts stored in an online account, or contacts stored on your SIM card (if applicable).

NOTE: The contacts library is not available in Kies for Mac®. If you do not see the device's name in the left panel, you may be running Kies in Lite mode. Click View > Switch Mode > Normal Mode, or click the mode shortcut in the top-right corner of the window to return Kies to "normal" mode.

Sync Contacts with Your Computer


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.

NOTE: 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.


1. Connect the cable to a compatible USB port on your computer.

2. Connect the cable to your Samsung device.

3. Click the Sync tab.

4. Mark the checkbox next to Sync contacts with, and click the drop-down box to select the application you want to sync contacts to, such as Outlook or Windows Contacts.

When selecting Outlook, there are additional settings you will need to define.

• Select All contacts to sync all of the contacts in Outlook with your device.

• Select Selected Contacts folder to sync only the contacts available in a specific contacts folder in Outlook.

• Select the Syncing Direction by clicking the drop-down box. When syncing in both directions, or from the device to Outlook only, you can define the Outlook contacts folder where you want to save contacts stored on your device.

• Mark the checkbox next to Sync the Outlook category with the contact group of the device to set the sync function to map the Outlook category field to the group assigned to a contact.
