    Sounds like you don't have iTunes set to transfer all your contacts, only a particular group.

    I am having the same problem. I have a new IMac and IPhone. I imported 25 contacts to address book from outlook (with a memory stick). I added another 30 manually. However my IPhone only shows 35 contacts. The only group which shows in address book is the imported contacts.

    ITunes is set to synch all contacts.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    hi rob

    what i did was made a group in address book and copied all my contacts into it, went to itunes and told it to sync selected groups with my iphone they synced together and once on iphone i deleted the group and changed itunes to tell the iphone to sync all contacts and they were there

    Duplicate entries in Contacts on 3GS

    For some unknown reason when I last applied 'Sync' my contacts file on my 3GS contained duplicates of every entry. Is there any way this can be corrected, short of pressing 'delete' for all 1100 entries?

    Help please?
