Let me clarify...You sure? I dunno why people on these boards say no and then others yes..
Syncing Contact Information from your Computer
If you’ve set up iTunes to sync contacts, iTunes automatically keeps your contacts up-
to-date—whether you make changes on your computer or on iPhone. iTunes supports
syncing with the following applications on your computer.
On a Mac: Mac OS X Address Book, Microsoft Entourage, and Yahoo! Address Book
On a PC: Yahoo! Address Book, Windows Address Book (Outlook Express), and
Ok then riddle me thisLet me clarify...
iTunes allows you to Sync your Contacts to a host computer, via the Sync set-up screens.
This data is then stored on your computer should you ever loose it on your iPhone - and can hence be re-synced when the iPhone is next connected.
This exact thing happened to me AFTER a Genius Bar rep told me it wouldn't delete anything! I lost ~275 of my 300 contacts. All old contacts disappeared, only ~25 that I entered completely on the iPhone remained. I'm waiting for someone to come up with a program to back up the iPhone outside of iTunes, and without Outlook. I have many custom labels that don't exist in Outlook and the syncs don't match. I would pay $100 for an outside program that works SAFELY and lets me have more control than Apple products, which seem to have little faith in the computer abilities of their products' users. (If it would actually move my bookmarks onto my iPhone, I'd pay another $100 - iTunes doesn't sync my bookmarks either...) I'm using XP Pro SP2 with Full Office 2003. Nothing syncs but my music and photos.Ok then riddle me this
I had contacts I had put into my iPhone. I then synced with Outlook which currently had no contacts stored in the account. It SHOULD have put the contacts that were on the phone into outlook. But it didn't, instead it removed all my contacts on my iPhone.
Anyone else had this happen to them or am I the only lucky guy out there?
care to be a little more specific.You need to be careful which way you sync... so you don't delete your data.
