Iphone contact sync. How does it know which edit to take? computer vs phone?

Hi,

When I manually enter a name in to my phone it appears on my mac address book.

If I add a name to my mac address book, it appears on my iphone.

If I edit one name one way on mac address book and the same contact on the phone another way, which one will it take?

I noticed on iphone sync page in itunes, it says something like, on the next sync only override iphone with computer. How do you get this to work as intended. I would imagine that if it syncs once you connect... it would sync before you can check the feature.

Can someone link me a page explaining exactly how syncing works? Thanks!!

I thought iSync asked which one it should keep then when you chose it put that one on both devices.

Saying that its a long time since i used isync so i could be wrong

iPhone sync: how to override Microsoft Outlook's preferences over iPhone's

I have had this same problem before, but figured out a work-around.
First, backup your iPhone (iTunes, L click on Device, choose "Back Up".)
Then, ERASE all your Microsoft Outlook files: for Calendar, go to View, click Current View and choose "By Category". Then hit Cntl + A (highlights every entry) and hit delete. Do the same for Contacts and Notes and any other field you use.
You now have a blank MS Outlook. On the next sync, choose the appropriate settings under "Info", and then sync.
Because Outlook is naked, everything from your iPhone syncs to MS Outlook.
Done!

as for your issue its set by default to take whats on your iphone unless its restoring from a backup then itll take your computers list.
