So I use thunderbird for my email client but since I have office 2007 Enterprise edition on my laptop that I got from someone I decided to give outook a gander and see what its like. Since I have no contacts on outlook I decided to sync my phones contacts without look. Well imagine my surprise when all my contacts where wiped out! I guess zero contacts on outlook means zero on your phone. Boy I almost had a heart attack until I remembered to restore from back up and that worked! How do I copy my contacts from phone into outlook?

Is this settings in the toolbar or something because i have not seen this option. Perhaps I missed it somewhere.

I don't have my phone next to me but you will only see the option when your phone is connected to your computer. It's in the sync menu. Along with options to sync your bookmarks, calendar, etc...

Is this where you click the info tab and when you scroll down to advance where they have contacts and if you click it, it will replace info on the phone. So if left unchecked it will just sync to outlook?

Ok, here you go. I use mobile me so I can't show you exactly but you can see where to go to get to your contact syncing.

Thats where I was in...that info tab. If you scroll down you will see advance, maybe you won't since you use mobileme? But it shows "replace info on this phone" with contacts. So if I leave that unchecked and sync contacts my info wll stay on the phone and outlook will change? Thats what I think...I will give it a try. By the way I love mobileme email fast as hell! I just don't use the other parts since my google calender is synced on exchange for free so no waiting 15mins or manually syncing. I just want push!!! Oh ya on a off topic in case you did not know, AOL just announced push for the blackberry. Since then I have been annoying them to allow push for the iphone. Thanks for your help you rock.

Ok, just making sure. That's weird, AOL has always pushed to my dad's BB. He's had his for about a year now. :confused:
