Is there a limit to how many contacts etc. I can have in my address book on my iphone? How does the syncing working with my address book to my iphone? Does it also sync their addresses?

Can I have mail on my iphone check for mail every 5 mins?

Also, is the new 16 gig iphone any bigger physically than the 8 gig?

1. It syncs pretty much all the fields from the address book, though I'm not sure of a limit.

2. No, the frequency choices are 15min, 30min, hourly, manually.

3. Same size, just a higher capacity flash memory chip.

Yes, it syncs addresses, birthdays, email addresses, phone numbers, favorite color, etc. You name it.

You will have the option to sync any and all mail accounts handled by the mail app.

Is it difficult to distinguish which address you're getting mail for on your iphone? What about sending email- can you choose which address you want to send it from from your iphone?

Can you have signatures for your mail sent from your iphone?

Well, it's not difficult to distinguish since the email boxes are separate. There is an "account list" > "folder list" > "email list" > "email" hierarchy. To check one address, go into it. To send from a specific email, go into the corresponding account.

You can specify a signature in settings which will be attached to any email sent from the iPhone.

Ha, sorry for all the questions. Last one- can you have multiple signatures? One for each account in mail on the iphone?
