    I have synced my Gmail contacts with my iPhone 4. I have many more contacts (and many of the same duplicate contacts) on Outlook on my PC. Is there any way to sync my iPhone to Outlook without losing the contacts already on the iPhone?

    I can sync Yahoo calendar to iPhone. Is it possible to go the other way? iPhone to Yahoo calendar when I am away from my PC?

    I seem to have several issues:

    When I connect my iPhone to my computer it doesn’t automatically start synching.

    When I open iTunes, it doesn’t recognize my iPhone, even though I did an initial sync shortly after purchasing my iPhone. Since then I’ve input new data on my iPhone and into Outlook and I’m concerned that if I sync them again, I’ll delete the new data on my iPhone – is that the case?

    Hi, this tutorial seems to be for syncing FROM computer TO iphone.

    But how do we do the OPPOSITE, ie, BACKUP/MAKE A COPY (not sync) of iphone Calendar FROM iphone TO Mac?

    If I’m not mistaken, syncing will erase whatever is on iphone! (I have zero Calendar info on my Mac/Apple iBook computer since I have never used Mac’s Calendar, but on my iphone it’s a different story altogether as I use iphone’s Calendar all the time to make tons of notes on special dates, diary-type journal/notes, etc.)

    I DO see you have a separate/distinct “BACKUP CONTACTS” tutorial, but I do not see a separate/distinct tutorial for “BACKUP IPHONE CALENDAR” (to Mac, not Windows/PC).

    BTW, great idea, this website! A very definitely NEEDED NICHE! This whole backing up, syncing business with iphone is a nightmare all around! It is VERY scary for us non-techies.

    Thank you!

    Hi, wonder if you can help, please? I have 2 IPhones, IPad and IMac. My 1500 contacts seem to have disappeared from the IPhone. The email addresses are all there, but I can’t find my phone contacts. It says they’re backed up to my computer, but where????? How do I find them and restore them to my phones. It’s driving me mad! It seems every time I sync the IPhone, the contacts leave my phone. This seems nuts. Been into the Apple store, they couldn’t help, been to the vodafone store, they couldn’t help, so I don’t know what else to do. thx very much. Sarah

    Trying to synch only MS Outlook 2010 Calendar with my boss’s iPhone, not Contacts or anything else. Can that be done and if so, how?
