    How do I get my iPhone contacts into my address book?
    I heard this was easy, but I can't seem to figure it out. I was able to do it with my calendar into iCal, but for some reason I can't do it with my contacts. Anyone?

    1) Plug your iPhone into your Mac.
    2) Open iTunes if it doesn't open automatically. (And have mine set to Manually Manage rather than Auto sync when connected)
    3) Make sure you have the iPhone highlighted in the left panel
    4) Click on the Info tab in the right panel
    5) Under 'Contacts' at the top, put a check in the 'Sync Address Book contacts'. Should have a check mark in 'All contacts' already, if not put one.
    6) Go thru all the tabs and turn off everything you don't want to sync this time
    7) Click on the Sync button at the bottom. It will then give you an information screen informing you of the changes that will be made to your computers Address book with as much detail as you like.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Hey! my computer freaked out this morning...the permissions got corrupt or something. it wouldnt let me login after the computer turned out. I would type in my password and it would say 'logging in' and then it would go to a blue screen then send me back to the login window. it was so frustrating. I was on the phone with a senior tech advisor from apple for over an hour trying to fix the problem. We ended up deleting some library preferences, logging in as "root" for the admin...after all was said and done (to fix my computer's problem), I didn't lose any files, but the computer looks like how it did when I first bought it. The normal applications I use aren't in the doc, the folders I had saved to the finder window aren't there, and my address book is empty... The only hope of getting these address book entries back is through my iphone.

    so i wanted to make sure i did the sync correctly, and not wipe my iphone of it's contacts. So i read this post first

    long story. and one **** of a day.
