Because graduation is approaching, I have decided to switch my phone’s calendar from Outlook/Exchange to Google Calendar. Windows Mobile doesn’t make it easy to remove an Outlook account once it’s been set up, so I’ve written down the procedure below:
- Open ActiveSync (Start > Programs > ActiveSync)
- Click “Menu” (the right soft key) and go to “Options…”
- Select the “Microsoft Exchange” account. Note that depending on your phone’s configuration, it may appear differently.
- Click the “Delete” button.
Voila – no more Outlook/Exchange. If you’re interested in setting up your Google calendar, check out Google’s Mobile Support page for step-by-step instructions. Note that there is a software option available (OggSync), but this is by far the superior option.
