    I will shortly be changing jobs and bring my Iphone 3G along to the new job.

    I would like to keep many of my current contacts which are on the phone (non business contacts).

    How do I go about doing this so they don't get swiped the first time I sync the phone with my new employers Exchange server?

    I'm pretty sure it will clear out all of your old contacts when you sync to the new server.
    I think you can download / save the contact files from your outlook at the current job. Just export them to a file. Then you could probably just import them into your new contact list at the new job. Just save them to a file, disk, or flash drive, etc.
    In the past, When I got my first smartphone that did EAS, I did this with my contacts from my home / personal outlook, then imported them onto my work exchange account, That way I had everything on 1 phone.

    My outlooked got wiped out when my GF crashed my computer. What can I do about having my contacts download onto my Outlook when I reinstall it.
