Phone number backup


You can do it via following steps.1.Update iTunes to the latest version if you have not updated recently. To find out if you need to update, launch iTunes and click "File" followed by "Check for updates." If you are on a Mac, click "iTunes" followed by "Check for updates." If you do not have the latest version installed, a dialog box will appear asking you if you want to download the latest version. Click the "Download iTunes" button.
2.Connect your iPhone to your computer using the USB cable that came with your iPhone. iTunes will automatically recognize your iPhone and an icon will appear in the left-hand column of iTunes.
3.Click the iPhone icon and the "Summary" pane will appear.
4.Click the "Contacts" tab located across the top of iTunes.
5.Click the check box next to the "Sync contacts with" field.
6.Click the drop-down menu in the "Sync contacts with" field and select a program to sync your contacts with. If you are on a Windows machine, you can choose from four options: Yahoo! address book, Windows address book, Google contacts, or Outlook. If you are on a Mac, your contacts will be synced with the Address Book utility.
7.Click the "Sync" button and all of the contacts on your iPhone will be saved to your computer's address book. Included in every contact will be the contact's phone number. Subsequent syncing will add any new contacts you have entered manually on your iPhone. Hope it can help you.

MacMini 10.5.4. How to copy mail.mac address book to Palm desktop


In order to sync a Palm device with other applications, including Outlook on Windows, or Apple's iCal and Address Book on the Mac, users can install Palm conduits, which divert data headed to Palm Desktop to an alternative selection of apps on the computer instead.

Apple currently only supports office 2003 and up syncing to the device. Sorry your out of luck. But the newer versions of office are a welcome upgrade and have many good features if your looking to upgrade

How do i save my phone contacts on my computer


For Windows:

- Open i-tunes on your computer that you sync it to
- Plug in your phone to the computer
- open "Address book" window's address book program. Its under start-programs-accessories
- Back to iTunes, click on the phone icon on the left
- Click on the Info, and under "Contacts" (the first one) check "sync contacts from" and then pick "Windows address book" or (Outlook) from the drop down menu
- Click all contacts
- Then at the bottom right of iTunes, click "Sync" It will ask you if you want to merge or replace. Make sure you select "MERGE" or it will delete your contacts on the phone.

You have to be careful what options you choose when syncing contacts. With Windows you can sync with Outlook, with the Mac you can sync with Address Book. Always choose merge so it doesn't wipe out your phones contacts.

If you want to upload for the first time from your computer to your phone, there is an option at the bottom of that page where you can replace what's on your phone with what's on your computer (in Outlook or Address Book). It's a one time option.

I highly recommend exporting your contacts from Address Book and backing it up on another drive, or emailing the file to yourself.

I have a palm centro and change to iphone. how can I move?


My wife and I just bought an iPhone and wanted to transfer our contacts from our Samsung i500 Palm phone. All the instructions I found online suggested going through Outlook, but that didn't work for me for a variety of reasons. I found this other method that worked really well.
  1. Bring up Palm Desktop. Make sure your Palm phone is sync'ed up. Show the Address page, select all contacts (Ctrl-A), and export them with File, Export vCard... This puts all contact information into a single file as a sequence of vCards.
  2. Bring up Windows Address Book. You can find this in Start, All Program, Accessories, Address Book.
  3. Using Windows Explorer, drag the vCard file you created in step 1 to the Windows Address Book window. I had never used Windows Address Book, so it was empty. If yours isn't empty, you'll have to decide whether you want to merge your contacts.
  4. When you drop the file, you'll get a window asking you to confirm the first contact. Press OK. Another window will come up for the second contact. Press OK until all windows are gone. It's easiest to hold down the Enter key.
  5. Bring up iTunes with your iPhone plugged in. Go to your iPhone page, to the Info tab, and configure it to sync from Windows Address Book. Click Apply in the lower-right corner of the window.
  6. Sync your iPhone. Verify that your contacts transferred over.
  7. Tell iTunes to stop sync'ing with Windows Address Book, since you probably only wanted a one-way sync. Your contacts will be backed up anyway by iTunes, so the Address Book sync feature doesn't buy you much.

Just save the contacts as described above "Bring up Palm Desktop. Make sure your Palm phone is sync'ed up. Show the Address page, select all contacts (Ctrl-A), and export them with File, Export vCard... This puts all contact information into a single file as a sequence of vCards."
Then send the file you saved as an e-mail attachment - using any mail (i.e. gmail, yahoo, outlook, etc) - to your i-phone e-mail. Open this email on the i-phone and push the attachement - it then asked you if you want to add these, click (push?) yes, and select eithr merge or new and voila you got them.
