Synchronizing iPhone with selected Outlook Contacts

Long asked and unresolved, here is How to Synchronize iPhone with only certain Outlook Contacts

  • In Outlook, click File -> New -> Outlook Data File and call the new Data File "Personal Folders"
  • Right-click on the "Personal Folder" you just created, select New and call the new sub-folder "Other Contacts", Folder contains: Contact Items
  • Right-click on this "Other Contacts" folder, select Properties -> Outlook Address Book and set properties to "Show as an email address book"
  • Move the contacts you don't want to sync to your iPhone to the "Other Contacts" folder and remove them from the "Contacts" folder of your Exchange Mailbox

  • Once your Exchange "Mailbox-Contacts" folder contains only the contacts you want to sync to iPhone, proceed as follows on your iPhone:
    • Go to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars and select your Exchange account
    • Turn Exchange ActiveSync - Contacts off
    • Press "Stop Syncing", which will delete all Exchange contacts from your iPhone
    • Check that all your contacts have been deleted from your iPhone
    • Go back to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars and select your Exchange account
    • Turn Exchange ActiveSync - Contacts back on, which will sync your selected Exchange contacts list to your iPhone

You now have only selected Contacts on your iPhone but still all Contacts in Outlook

Cool !
