    Kies 3 not showing contacts

    Hi all,
    I am new to the forum. Lots of good stuff here.

    I am trying to sync my Outlook 2013 contacts and calendar with my S4 (SCH-I545) running Android 4.3.
    I have downloaded and installed Kies 3 (Ver 3.1.13103_22).

    I connect the phone via a USB cable. The phone is connected as a media device and USB debugging is off.


    Kies3 does not show my contacts or calendar. The documentation on Kies is ...well...not helpful.
    I have tried different USB ports.
    I was able to see contacts in the older version of Kies but synching did not work in that version.

    Am I missing something? Is Kies 3 still buggy?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Just an update.
    I did some more poking around. Seems like Kies3 IS not supporting sync...yet.
    GREAT!
    Apparently, Samsung is working on a solution.

    Why couldn't they have included the solution in the "upgrade" ??? My phone is now useless for business and might as well be a twenty dollar Tracfone from Walmart.

    There is a program called gSyncit for Outlook that works better and much easier. It keeps everything synced on the fly. Kies has never been all that great.

    I am having the same problem as above. Do you recommend any software that is free?

    Google had a free program that would work very much like gSyncit but for some reason discontinued it. I am unaware of any other free program.

    It is an official Samsung tool, (that doesn't mean it works) Many people don't care for it, me included, but it is supposed to be able to do backups and syncing.
