Transfer Contacts from Mac to iPhone: Guidelines!

Apple iPhone is have very large memory space where you can store thouands of songs, hundreds of movies, videos and many more documents along with the regular mobile phone contents like contacts, sms and other things. When you need more space or your iphone memory goes full then you can take the help of iTunes which is an application developed by Apple to listen music as well as transfer the iPhone data to your computer and vice versa. iTunes is available free on the official website of Apple which is www.apple.com/iTunes. you can download iTunes according to the operating system that you are using as this application is available for both the Windows and Mac systems.


Since Outook is so popular, its mac version is also available and the mac users are using them on their Mac OS X based computers. You can visit to http://www.microsoft.com/mac/outlook to know more about the Outlook for Mac application.


Before the transfer of contacts from your computer to your iPhone, you need to make sure that the iTunes Sync add-in is enable in Outlook. This will automatically detect the iPhone and start the syncing process. This step is not for the Mac users as their Mac is already equipped with the Add-in and as you connect your iPhone to the Mac Computer, Sync starts and iTunes opens automatically.


Now, setup the items that need to be synced. Mac users can select the “Sync Address Book Contacts”. If you are using PC then click on “Sync Contact form” and then choose Yahoo Address Book or other address Book where you have stored the data. Then select “All contacts”, or select “selected groups” and select the group that you want to sync. While configuring the contacts from Yahoo, you need your Yahoo ID and password. Then click on the “Configure” and enter your new login information.



The sync process doesn’t delete the contacts in Yahoo Address Book that contains a Messenger ID even if you have deleted the contact from your address book or your computer. Entourage users can Sync with the mac and the contacts will also be synced with iPhone.


But it has found that sometimes the iTunes fails to transfer contacts from Mac to iPhone. The reason can be anything and you should therefore use the iPhone Transfer Mac software which is an all-in-one iphone transfer application that can transfer iTunes files and settings from iPhone to Mac and vice versa.
