There are a few ways off getting your contacts to your iPhone. The easiest way is through iTunes, which will automatically sync your contacts between the iPhone and your computer. Although you able to sync your iPhone’s contacts only with one computer at one time, but it does not necessarily be the exact same computer you’ve used to sync the media files. Syncing is bidirectional if there are any changes that are made to any contact on you iPhone will come up on your computer, or vise versa.
Syncing with MAC
On the Mac, iPhone will sync the contacts from an online Yahoo Address Book or OS X`s Address Book. When you initially connect to your Mac, then iTunes shall ask which one of the contacts you like to import, you are able to import all contacts in the OS X`s Address Book or specific selected groups, maybe you have created different contact groups at Address Book. By choosing Sync Yahoo Address Book Contacts option, Yahoo users will able to sync all their online contacts. You only have to provide your password and user name and iTunes will do the rest. If contacts are stored in some program instead off Address Book even a Web site that’s not Yahoo, you could still use them. The idea is to put your contacts into the Address book. If Microsoft Entourage is been used the process is pretty simple (you must have latest version of Entourage, part of Microsoft Office 11.3.5 or even later. Open Entourage`s preference then select Sync Service screens, now enable this option to Synchronize Contacts With Mac And Address Book within minutes, all your Entourage contacts shall migrate into Address Book. From this point forward, Address Book, and hence iPhone would automatically reveal all the changes that are made to the contacts In Entourage and vise versa. Regrettably, Groups and Entourage Categories are not synchronized; you are going to have them re-created within the Address Book. For other Web services and address-book programs you will need the vCard format to export all contacts, after saving these files onto a folder to your Mac, merely drag them to an open Address Book window and import your contacts. Unfortunately here you are unable to synchronize your contacts, which means after any changes you make you will have to change both, your Address Book and Web site or contacts program.
Synching with the PC
With Windows PC, iTunes allows you to sync from the Yahoo`s Address Book, the Window`s Address Book or Microsoft Outlook. The Window`s Address Book includes any of the contacts you have entered into Microsoft Outlook Express. The Windows Address Book can be reached also from the Accessories menu, but you will be using that contacts list through Outlook Express. Specific groups you pick out off the address book can sync with your iPhone, these groups then become accessible through the Group Screen, or through a Groups button which appears at the upper of All Contacts screen which is on the left.
