    My main curiosity after hours of reading, is trying to determine the most effective method for moving contacts from Outlook to the iPad2 and this topic offers many methods. I need to hear from some people who have done it and can tell me where the problems develop so that when I do it, it's problem-free. This is currently my #1 next step if I'm convinced about method. Knowing about 3 or 4 methods isn't enough. I am searching for person who is experienced and states with authority with my circumstances what method is best & problem-free.

    Open Outlook, select all your contacts, and export them as a vCard file. Now you have a backup, and you can be less paranoid about picking a guaranteed trouble free method; which I doubt anyone here would be willing to commit to.

    You can do pretty much the same thing with Calendars, only a .ics file.

    Many thanks, "twerppoet" for the safety tip which shows the best foresight and since I've sweat out many things PC-world with topics I thought were SO safe, this I recognize has its challenges, so you've saved me long hours of reading while I was attempting to
    reach a comfort level to proceed with most convincing method moved me. Always for Eco in the sweat department.
