    I have been a long time apple/iphone user and recently got new iphones for my parents as a gift. I am going to be setting them up on them in the next couple days and i am at a loss as to what program to use to store their contacts on their PC that with sync easily with their iPhones

    i have always used address book with my iMac/MBP but am not really sure what to use for them since they have a PC. Both right now just store their contacts on their old phones (non smartphone)

    any suggestions?

    Outlook 2007 or later is one option.

    I dislike Outlook. I recommend converting them to a free Outlook.com.
    It supports exchange push sync. Contacts, Mail, Calendar.

    GMail is also an option.

    iCloud, it works wonderfully and is completely transparent.

    If you wanna be a super nerd. Cough up $8-12/yr and setup a custom domain with Outlook.com for your fam.

    I second that.

    iCloud is the best way IMO.
