    1. mobileme will sync with your computer's contacts

    2. maybe

    3. maybe

    read this. it says what contact sources it syncs with
    Apple - MobileMe also works great with your PC.

    Mobile Me will sync contacts from your iPhone then to your PC if you use Outlook. If you don't like using Outlook just have it as a backup for Mobile Me to push to. That is how I do it.

    Though not 100% accurate, think of it that mobile me is syncing TO Outlook and your phone from their system.

    for someone who already has their contacts in Outlook mobile me pulls the data from there and pushes/pulls changes with it going forward. it plays the same part Exchange does.

    heres one i dont get. i used to use outlook, but dont anymore, it was screwing up my iphone emails, anyway, with mobile me it seems somehow it still updates outlook even though i havent used it in forever! lol, just a really quick sync i guess.

    Once you have the Mobile ME app setup in Windows control panel, and checked, it will always update as soon as you log onto your pc...

    I have mine setup...
