    I believe it syncs with Outlook on the PC.

    Yeah, you can just use the basic "Address Book" application. I think it's in Start>All Programs>Accessories

    then in iTunes under your iPhone, click the "info" tab and sync contacts with Windows Address book, then down at the bottom click "Contacts" for the "replace iPhone information" thing or whatever, it's really easy and straight-forward in iTunes.

    this sounds very easy and basic, just what i need. i just want to make sure its def going to sync over before i type in 300+ contacts. i dont have an iphone to test it out with. any easy calander method?

    I tried to sync my current ppc with outlook and had zero luck. do i need out look express or regular outlook? i remember having a problem with not being able to create a partnership.

    and can i buy the 3g iphone without a contract? J/K i had to throw a noobie question in there..

    Thanks in advance.

    iTunes & iPhone sync with Yahoo Address Book. You can upload your contacts to Yahoo, then down onto the iPhone.
