when you download or sync contact info from your old phone to a new one, let say a blackberry, there is always a couple of steps involved which should get you operational, with this I mean getting your notes and addresses. being the reality that there is not a single "standard" for addressing the fields in the different database formats nor a open format for information interchange, then the manufacturers decide which field number correlates with the field name they want it mapped to, then when you export the info to a CSV file you may be able to get your notes and addresses but sometimes then the migration doesnt map the fields correctly then you dont get all the info you need, in my case when I needed the info synced from a treo to a blackberry then to a motorola cliq I just synced the device with outlook in both cases and the conversion took place without a glitch, sometimes if the two devices are too dissimilar then you may have to tinker a little with the database formats of the fields mapping but most important is to make a tested and proper backup because sometimes after migrations in some cases the migration software changes the data adding a couple of fields or notes to each contact then you have corrupted although operational address book in the origin device and some of the info in the destination device. not funny, in my case I had to try a couple of times to get it right . knowing from which device and to which device you are going may let me provide you with more info about the proper correct procedure. you may not get the sms text messages, though. but that is a totally different story. I may oist a guide later if the time allows me to.
You will have to move those certain categorized contacts to a new contacts folder in OutlookI. So i outlook create another contacts folder go to the folder tab and right click and select new folder - name it what every you like eg." iPhone Contacts" Copy or move all the contacts you have in outlook that you what to sync with your iphone to that new folder.
In itunes make sure your iphone is connected and then select your device on the left hand panel then select the the info tab at the top make sure sync contacts with: Outlook is selected and then choose Selected groups and tick the new folder you just created in outlook.
Just below that also tick Put new contacts created on this iPhone into group: and the select the group that you want to go in - most likely you will want it to go into the same one (folder)
un pair the phone then re pair the phone if it does not automatically ask if you want to download the phonebook then you have to push the numbers to the phone manually by going to the phone book folder where is says to add contacts and it will more than likely let you push them with your phone by going to the phone number in your phone and sending to sync with the send via bluetooth option...
Take the Outlook contacts (highlight then copy) forward your contacts in Outlook and email them to yourself as V-cards these can be saved to the desktop folder Name it Phone contacts. Now here is the rub you must have a Blue Tooth dongle connected to your computer and the Blue Soleil Software available on the net. This will allow you to pair with the computer and phone. Select the contacts in the folder right click and then send to Bluetooth select the phone and you are done. Now if you get an error restart the phone and software ....works for me Note: this is not sync per say but at least you can type your contacts in Outlook and forward them to the phone. The rest of the folders on the phone have been disabled by Bell TELUS etc in Canada and some companies in the U.S. so they can charge us Data rate over and above the already high cell costs they shove at us...sorry had to vent.
did you add the PC in trusted mode at your phone? Activate the contacts sync with your email which configured at the phone and add the same email account in your outlook. All contacts will be synced automatically.
When you connect your iPhone to the PC that you always sync with, Go to Info tab, Check the box Sync Contacts with: and select Outlook. Then make sure that you check the box Put new contacts created on this phone into the group: and select a subfolder in your main contacts folder.
This way, all the contacts from your iPhone will be saved into another folder in your main contacts folder of your Outlook PST.
Try Desktop overwrite HH. I've lost everything on my HH a couple of times and had to set the conduits to 'Desktop overwrites HH' in the hotsync manager - Custom settings for the next hot sync.
If what you have on desktop isn't what you want, you should copy your saved folder info back over whats in your palm folders (i.e) where you copied it from.. Before you complete this step. Then your old data will be copied to your HH.
Note - I assume you "copied" , not "archived" the data.
