    Outlook should be able to import a spreadsheet as a CSV file into its address book - and then you can manipulate those, plus ones from your other email accounts into groups without a lot of difficulty... of course that's presuming you have a Windows machine... but - the address book on a Mac can do the same thing... then sync your phone to your computer via iTunes, or - if you use Gmail - you can sync the computer to that, and sync your phone to Gmail.

    Like what above said, exchange should be your best bet. If you really a fully customized one, save it manually on iCloud or email and import them
