On your iPhone, make sure that
  • in the Settings app
    • Mail, Contacts...-->iCloud has Contacts enabled (green button)
On your Mac, make sure that

If the iPhone still doesn't sync,
  • connect the USB cable from the iPhone to the Mac,
  • open iTunes,
  • make sure that "automatically sync iPhone when connected" is checked in the Summary window of your iPhone (in iTunes);
  • and click "sync" in the lower right corner of your iTunes window.

Tip

Tracking a stolen Apple iPhone / iPad


Locate your lost or stolen iPhone or iPad on a map.<br /><br />If you lose your iPhone or iPad, MobileMe can help you find it with Find My iPhone. Just enable Find My iPhone in the MobileMe settings on your iPhone or iPad.* Then sign in to me.com from any computer or using the Find My iPhone app on another iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to display its approximate location on a full-screen map<br /><br />Display a message or play a sound to help you find it.<br /><br />Say you've just used the Find My iPhone feature, and it turns out you left your iPhone or iPad at the doctor's office. Not to worry. You can write a message that will be displayed on your iPhone or iPad. Something like, "Oops, left my iPhone behind. Please call me at 408-999-9999." Your message appears on the screen, even if it's locked. And if the map shows you that your iPhone or iPad is nearby - say, at home under a pile of laundry - yet you still can't find it, you can tell MobileMe to play a sound that overrides the ringer volume or silent setting on your device.<br /><br />Set a passcode lock remotely.<br /><br />Once you realize you haven't simply misplaced your iPhone or iPad at home, you may want to protect its contents until it's safely back in your hands. Sign in to your MobileMe account and remotely set a four-digit passcode lock to prevent people from using your iPhone or iPad, accessing your personal information, or tampering with your settings.<br /><br />Protect your privacy with Remote Wipe.<br /><br />Addresses, phone numbers, email, photos. Your iPhone or iPad contains important and personal information - information you probably don't want in the hands of a stranger. So if you lose your iPhone or iPad and displaying a message on it hasn't resulted in its safe return, you can initiate a remote wipe to restore it to the factory settings.* If you eventually find your iPhone or iPad, you can restore your email, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks by enabling your MobileMe account on your device. Or connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer and use iTunes to restore the data from your most recent backup.<br /><br />Find My iPhone app.<br /><br />Because the unexpected happens in the most unexpected places, the Find My iPhone app can help you locate your missing iPhone or iPad even when you don't have access to a computer. It's free on the App Store and available to anyone. So if you misplace your device, download the Find My iPhone app on a friend's iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and sign in to your MobileMe account to access all the Find My iPhone features on the spot.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.itunes.com/apps/mobilemefind">http://www.itunes.com/apps/mobilemefind</a>

Looks like the only way it is possible is to: Free mobileme, sync contacts, export them out, cancel mobileme.
You could use funambol to get them too

Want to wirless syn with a calendar & contact list for back up. what is the best program to use????


You can use the BlackBerry Desktop Manager to synchronize your organizer data
(calendar entries, contacts, tasks, notes, and memos) between your BlackBerry smartphone and your Mac computer.
In order to synchronize with Microsoft® Entourage, Apple® Sync Services functionality must be turned on in the
Microsoft Entourage application. To accomplish this, complete the following steps:-
note:-Back up information and data before changing any settings on your Mac computer.
1) If the BlackBerry smartphone is connected to the Mac computer, use the Eject option to remove the BlackBerry
smartphone from the Mac computer.
2) Close the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
3) Open Microsoft Entourage.
4) On the Microsoft Entourage menu bar, go to Entourage > Preferences.
5)Within General Preferences, click Sync Services.
To turn on contact list synchronization, select the Synchronize contacts with Address Book and MobileMe check box
To turn on calendar synchronization, select the Synchronize events and tasks with iCal and MobileMe check box
note:- When Sync Services has been enabled and the OK button is selected, a new dialog window appears with the following choices:

1)Replace Entourage items with Sync Services items.
2)Replace Sync Services items with Entourage items.
3)Merge Entourage items with Sync Services items.
For Additional Information:-
Before the BlackBerry smartphone data is synchronized with the Mac computer, verify that Sync Services is turned
on in the Mac OS X iSync application. This is done by completing the following steps:
1)Open Applications on the Mac computer and click iSync.
2)In the iSync menu, click Preferences.
3)If necessary, select the Enable syncing on this computer check box.

I synced my iphone with my outlook email, but still cannot send or receive email from my phone. Do I need to change any settings?


Set up an account on iPhone:
From the iPhone Home screen, tap Settings. Tap “Mail, Contacts, Calendars,” then tap Add Account. Tap an account type:
Microsoft Exchange MobileMe Google email Yahoo! Mail AOL Other
Enter your account information and tap Save.
If its 'other', the iPhone will try to find your settings based on common email servers. If yours is not found, then you'll need your POP3 and SMTP settings. Done correctly, you'll be able to send your emails from your contact list.

How do I synch outlook 2003 with iphone


You didn't say whether you're trying to sync everything (mail, calendars, contacts) or just some things or one thing (like contacts only). I don't know if you're using an Exchange server or even if you have the info you'll need to sync with an Exchange server.

I have a Windows mobile device (AT&T Tilt) running Outlook 2007 and everything is sync'd. We also started purchasing the iphone for our employees and sync their email, calendar and contacts to their phone.

I could probably give you step-by-step information (based on how I do this for my users at work) if I knew whether you'll use iTunes to do this or Exchange Active Sync and what you want to sync between your phone and outlook. One method (iTunes) will only update your data between Otulook and the phone when you connect it to the computer with Outlook configured on it but, the way we do it at work, they receive email, data, changes, etc in real time.

Try using this link http://www.apple.com/support/iphone/mail/

What you will find here is support topics and instructions for Exchange Active Sync, setting up email accounts, troubleshooting for contact and calendar syncing.

You can also search support on Apple's Web site. Entering the keywords: iphone outlook 2003 will bring up a lot of support info.

You can use iTunes or MobileMe for synchronization. If using iTunes then try this:

You can configure which items are synchronized during a one time set up process. After initial set up, each time you connect the iphone to your computer, the changes made on your computer or device are synchronized.

  1. Connect your iPhone to your computer. iTunes should open automatically.
  2. In iTunes, in the source list, under Devices, click the entry for your iPhone.
  3. Click the Info tab.
  4. Select which items you would like to sync. For example to sync only calendars, under Calendars, you would click Sync calendars from, and then click Outlook.
  5. Do one of the following:
  • To synch all calendars, click All Calendars.
  • To limit the calendars that are synched, click Selected calendars and then click the calendars you want to sync.
6. Click Apply.

Hope this helps!

How to sync contacts from iphone to outlook 2003?


Hi,

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.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks

Try using MobileMe. It will sync your Outlook Contacts and Calendar but not your email wirelessly.You'll have to setup some sort of IMAP or Exchange server to sync your email.
