    So, I was able to successfully sync my outlook contacts to my iPhone. Very happy I didn't have to manually input all that stuff.

    Now, I've addeded a few more contacts to the iphone. If I sync my phone to my outlook again, will it now add those contacts to my outlook? Or is this transfer only go one way Outlook -> iPhone and not the other way around?

    It syncs in both directions. New contacts that you create on your phone will appear in your Contacts folder in Outlook/Entourage, and changed contacts will be updated appropriately.

    Interesting. I have been working on this since Sunday morning, got my iphone on Sat.

    I have to sync

    XP LAPTOP with Outlook 2003, not exchange.

    I think I have all set up correctly and have seen only this so far.

    OUTLOOK calendar events on iCAL, but only on iCAL on MACBOOK not updated. When I go in to XP and into MobileME and SYNC NOW, goes through the motions but nothing! I did manually sync the contacts as I have to travel today and could not wait on the cloud.

    SO, looking for

    MACBOOK iCAL to be updated with Outlook events mainly.

    Maybe because there are no "clouds" over Atlanta today. :eek:
