How would I move my contacts from my Droid to my iPhone? Would hate to manually add all 234 of them.

Thanks!

Back up your contacts to your address book on your computer and the iPhone will automatically sync all your contacts.

I'm told you can import your gmail contacts to itunes which will be transferred to your iphone, a google search will quickly show you step by step instructions on how to do that.

I've not tried it yet.

go to gmail.com, go to contacts, select all, then export in vcard format onto desktop, load it in address book and sync it with itunes

Second this. I used this method and it worked well, plus you can also get push gmail using this method instead of having the mail app poll every 15 mins.

I have a Mac and MobileMe; the Mac Address Book app will sync with Google contacts, just as an FYI.

My Droid X required me to have a gmail account so I'm assuming yours does to. Your droid and gmail should be sync'd. If they are, when you get your iphone, you can put your gmail information in and have your iphone sync to your contacts just like the droid does. No issue at all.

This is the easiest and fastest method:


Go to www.google.com/contacts and verify that all of your contacts are listed
On your iPhone, go to Settings -> Mail and create a new Exchange account (NOT Gmail account)
Use your full gmail address
Use m.google.com for the domain
Select what you want to sync (contacts, calendar, etc)
Done!

As others are saying, I had all my contacts in my gmail account. I believe when I first plugged in my iPhone 4 to activate it I was automatically prompted to upload my gmail contacts

Good info on the Google contacts. Seems easy.

I'm assuming my Facebook friends who have phone numbers listed can also be synced and integrated into contacts like the Android app?

Google is universally useful. Almost every kind of phone syncs with their contacts, mail and calendars. (Google paid Microsoft for the right to rebrand ActiveSync as Google Sync.)

You have to use a separate app. For example:

Correct, in the Facebook app click on friends, then sync in the upper right hand corner.

does anyone know what you put in the field for "server"?

Edit: nevermind, I left domain blank and put m.google.com into the server field.
