Google does two things that have caused massive duplication of contacts: 1. If you have anyone with three words in their name, in other words when you combine their forename & surname, if there are more than 3 words, Google decides to put some of the names into the "middle name" field. This changes the contact enough to cause a dup. This will happen with a forename like "George W." also; 2. If you stored someone's address details using the wrong country format for that person, i.e. you used the default US format for someone who lives in Germany, then Google will switch the format for you causing another duplicate when you sync. I gave up trying to sync to both.

A simple to implement, reliable way to sync Outlook 2016 Contacts and Calendars with my iPhone 6? (iCloud was a nightmare)

There are about 50 (at the very least) apps in app store ( I use 'Easy Backup" that would allow you to scan your contacts on iphone and email backup file so you can import it (one way sync) to either Outlook or Icloud.

Restore iphone contacts

If you have synced your iPhone XS Max to iCloud, it would be easier for you to retrieve deleted contacts from iCloud for iPhone XS Max and other iPhone models. The below steps would show you how to restore contacts you have deleted from iPhone XS Max from iCloud for your iPhone XS Max and other iPhone models.

1.On your computer, open icloud.com and log in with your Apple ID account.
2.Go to Settings tab on iCloud.com, then click "Restore Contacts" (in the Advanced section).
3.Then, you will see available versions listed by the date and time they were archived previously.
4.To the right of the version you want to restore, click Restore option.
5.Wait until iCloud finishes restoring your contacts before you change them. While it's restoring them, any changes you make aren't saved.
The restored contacts and contact groups will appear on all your devices set up for iCloud Contacts. If you haven't set up your iPhone XS Max for iCloud, on your iPhone XS Max, go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud, swipe Contacts option to green on the "iCloud" window, and then click "Merge" button. You could then view all restored contacts on your iPhone XS Max.
Actually, with iCloud, you can restore your contacts, calendars and reminders, or Safari bookmarks and reading list from an earlier version that was automatically archived in iCloud. However, restoring contacts for iPhone XS Max and other iPhone models requires you to have archived contacts to iCloud.com previously. Otherwise you won't be able to retrieve contacts from iCloud.com.

How to transfer Contacts in iPhone to Outlook

Once your iPhone is connected to your PC and iTunes is loaded you can right click on your iPhone and select exactly what you want to have sync'd.
1. Under the Info tab you will find Contacts. 2. Tick the "Sync contacts with :" and select Outlook from the list. 3. Click "All contacts"
If you wish to put all of your iPhone created contacts into a different group in Outlook you can select the group there also and tick the relevant box.
iTunes always displays a warning about over writing data but that is not relevant to Contacts. Data is always merged.
I hope this solves your problem.

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!

Sync Outlook Contacts & iPhone

When you create a new Contacts Folder you have to make sure that you create as a subfolder of the main contacts folder (in the create window you are shown the file tree).

I had the folders moved in different groups as well but I am not sure that it made a difference.

Please note that you have to leave outlook and itunes on for a few minutes before they synch and iTunes see the new folders.
