Trouble with contacts backup using Windows Mobile Device Center.

(Also posted in old thread relating to the subject)
Hi, I joined the forum specifically for this problem and this is my 
first post. I'm just going to spare you all the introductory bs and get 
down to my concerns. And I didn't bother reading past the first page of 
this thread even though it is apparently like four years old and a 
solution has probably already been found. Forgive me, but I'm really 
frustrated because I'm pretty good with computers and I've been at a 
standstill trying to fix this for about 5 hours now.

I'm running Windows Vista Home Edition 32-Bit on my notebook.
I have Microsoft Office 2007 including Outlook.
My phone is a Samsung I-760 (Carried by Verizon) Running Windows Mobile 
6.1 Professional.

The problem I'm having is the same as described for most of the thread, 
Device Center will not let me backup my contacts because "Outlook not 
configured". I screwed around with outlook, I screwed around with my 
phone, I screwed around with WDC and hours later I haven't accomplished
a  damn thing.

I can't update my phone for because I have no phone internet and am not 
paying Verizon a boatload to back up my contacts.
Am I missing some ridiculous solution to Microsoft's conflicting OS's? 
Is there a patch or something free I can download for my PC or something
to help?

Using Fill to Increment Cell References
In the first column of my spreadsheet (coumn A), every third row of my spreadsheet contains information that needs to be linked to a different location in my sheet. For example, A1, A4 and A7 contain the information that needs to be referenced. In D1, I would like type "=A1", in D2 I would like to type "=A4". Ideally, I would like to fill down and have the cell references increment to A7, A10, etc. Is this possible?

Contacts not available as address book
I've just transferred my data files from a W98 PC to a new stand-alone WXP PC (by temporarily installing the old hard drive in the new PC and copying all the data files over to a separate folder in the new hard drive).

The old version of Outlook was 2000, the new version is 2002. Almost everything I have tried so far works fine, except for the following problem. When I try to use the address book, I g...
