    Will soon get a new Win Phone.

    Don't want my Outlook data synced to the cloud.

    Want only local sync between phone & my PC.

    Years back, when Microsoft started to require Sync-to-the-Cloud-by-Default for Outlook on PC & Winphone some folks realized a workaround.

    "If I go to settings->email+accounts and change the server to 127.0.0.1 (local host) contacts etc. aren't synced, and stored on the handset. "

    Is this still true? What I want to do is sync the data in my PC Outlook with ONLY the phone. So that, my Outlook information isn't in the cloud, or passed to the cloud. Move the data from my PC to the phone via a plain old USB cable. Seems like this strategy above says that's possible?

    Thanks!!

    when you say outlook data, do you mean emails and contacts and calendar info? Or just something else? Is there any reason you want to do it this way?
