For people who sync their WinMo through ActiveSync/WMDC to Outlook, I guess the below method is by far the easiest for importing the contacts to Android without any 3rd party apps.

Once imported to your Gmail account, the contacts appear in Android on next account sync. It took me only a couple of minutes to sync my huge contact list.

Edit: For Outlook 2010, the export option is available under File->Open->Import :mellow:

The easiest way I've found to sync my contacts and calendar between Android and Windows Mobile is to set up Google Sync under WinMo; see http://www.google.co...amp;topic=14299. This way you can easily sync your contacts and calendar from your WinMo phone to your Google account and thus Android. As this works both ways, you can easily switch between WinMo and Android and always have your contacts and calendar in sync (no need for manual imports and exports).

Correct me if I am wrong.. but the above method is not possible if you already sync your WinMo with Outlook (which is configured with another exchange server, which in my case is my work exchange server)

The easiest way for me was to use Android Manager WiFi and sync with my Outlook :mellow:

The easiest way for me was to use bluetooth to send all of my contact from phonebook winmo to my PC, then copy contact's files (*.vcf) to SD Card. On android just select option on contact menu > import from SD Card > import all contact. Finish. :mellow:
