Where bunnies are welcome.
i have PC, i dont use, or even know how to use Outlook.
Well, I suggest you get it, since it is the best sync for contacts (as well as calendars and notes) on a PC. You can use Windows Address Book, if you don't have access to Office, but it can only be used to sync contacts and you'll lose the pics you gave to any contact.

Yes i would like to ask anyone thats out there if they can help me with this. I have the iphone 3GS and i want to sync my contacts from iphone to my laptop! I am a PC user and i have Windows Vista. So they dont put Microsoft, they put Windows Mail. I would like to know how do i take my contacts from my iPhone and put them in the Windows Mail.:)
