    Okay so after couple hours of troubleshooting I got her to try OneNote, but doesn't like that fact that the file has to stay on Skydrive so that was negated out.

    So we moved onto Evernote and everything went okay we got all the Notes from Outlook copied to Evernote, however when we tried to sync the Evernote app on WP8 with the notes on the PC app it did nothing but vibrate. So now we are one step from crossing the finish line just with this little misshap.

    Well, good luck. You're doing your part, but the user at the other end of the transaction is being unreasonable. The more complicated you make anything, the more problems can arise.

    Good luck to you :).

    Sidewayz8, I'm in the same boat with your Mom. I did the trial version of Akruto Sync that promised to do just what she and I want to do. It took me 2 days to undo the mess that made and they never answered my help request. I have finally come to the same conclusion as the first responder to your original post. Your Mom and I do not need Outlook anymore, and we sure don't need to "rent" Office 365. Our Nokia 920 and a PC running Windows 8 is all we need; we just need to stop fighting the program and use SkyDrive and OneNote and the Windows 8 Calendar. OneNote does a good job with tasks and checklists too. Our only other choice is to abandon the Windows OS completely. Making the "new" work like the "old" is just not worth wasting any more of my time. I'm going to the cloud, and I hope "Mom" is coming with me.

    You can store one note notebooks locally, they don't have to be on skydrive.

    I wonder if office 365 home premium will work. Outlook 2013, provides access to outlook.com via EAS.

    Outlook.com is free, Office 365 is not.
    If you have an older version of Outlook (2003, 2007, or 2010) you can download outlook connector from Microsoft. When installed, Outlook Connector will add a pull-down menu on your existing Outlook program and enable you to sync your old Outlook Contacts and/or Calendar to your Windows phone 8. On your phone, the People hub app will then contain your Outlook contacts.
    I had to stumble on to this on my own, no thanks to the dummies at the AT&T store that sell the phones they know nothing about.

    Yes, the Outlook connector works great with Office 2010. Office 2013 or 365 doesnt need it as syncing is native to the programs. But just search for Outlook connector, download install and it will sync automatically to yuor MS account, send up contacts, calendar etc. You can add contacts via phone or desktop or via web....alls will sync ast the same time. But again you wont have notes without using OneNote etc.

    Wish someone would make a pro level Personal Information Manager such as Pocket Informant. Beautiful calendar and notes and contact package. Asked them if they were going to make one for the Win8 phone.....but not until it gets bigger market share...and MS needs to open more API and give them more access to the OS to make it.

    While this is an old thread, I want to make sure people who are looking for USB Sync know that as of August 2013, there is a solution. CompanionLink has a product that does USB sync between Windows Phone 8 and Microsoft Outlook 2013 - 2000. It handles Outlook calendar, contacts, tasks, notes, journal, categories, and contact photos.

    Here is the press release about this new product.
