    Depends on whether you have a PC or Mac. For a PC use Outlook and sync the contacts to Outlook. For a Mac use Address Book.

    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.
