    I just bought an iPhone 4 which is my first iPhone and first smart phone of any type. My contacts are on Outlook 2000 which I've learned isn't compatible with syncing to the iPhone 4. How do I get my contacts from Outlook 2000 to be able to sync them to my iPhone? Thanks.

    You might be able to export them into either Windows Address Book which can sync to your iPhone, or, failing that, a Google account.

    I went through the steps of setting up a Google account so it would sync with my iPhone. When I finished it keeps saying I entered the wrong password. I tried it online and know it's right. Is there a lowercase and caps on iPhone keyboard? What could be wrong?

    That's fine with me since I already have an address book set up for Outlook Express. What steps do I take to get this address book to my iPhone?

    In iTunes it gives you the option from where on your PC that you want Contacts to be synced from.Check the box for Sync contacts and choose Windows Address Book.I have done this on my PC running XP.
    I hope this helps.
