Option one: One of you will need to not sync your contacts to the computer... sounds like that should be you. Next time you plug in your iPhone, if it immediately starts syncing, cancel it. Then uncheck syncing contacts in the info tab. You can also uncheck the box to "automatically sync when this iPhone is connected" if you want.
Option two: You can create two separate contact groups ahead of time. On your computer (Outlook for PC, Contacts for Mac) make a group for your contacts and one for your boyfriend's contacts. Then in the info tab make sure you choose to only sync the group of your contacts for your iPhone and similarly for his iPhone.
Hope I'm making sense.

I strictly segregate work and business contacts and keep my personal ones in a personal source.

Segregating is a difference of opinion. I prefer to have all in one place. I've tried separating our personal and business, but found the best way for me is to apply a category to each contact.

I'm new to this site - only registered today and - and this is my first post.
I've purchased a 3GS iphone and am trying to set it up. First of all I tried to transfer photos but found that it transferred everything and after some difficulty I deleted all these on the phone. Now I have to select the ones that I want and put them in a new file and trans. that to the phone.
I tried to transfer all my contacts. The names transferred but not the phone numbers. I'm a bit stumped at the moment so if anyone has some useful suggestions I would be grateful.
