When you connect you phone with the PC, ActiveSync should open. When it does, go to Options and you will be able to select what items sync. Select Contacts and Calendar, and then exit by selecting (I believe) OK. The phone should then sync with Outlook (this has to be the full MS Office version, not Outlook Express), and your contacts and calendar events will show up in Outlook's Contacts and Calendar.
