    I have a 3GS connected to my Macbook Pro. The problem is if I update a phone number on the phone and then sync it, it seems to overwrite that with the old number that's in Contacts on the computer. How can I make it so that it will take the contact from my phone and overwrite the one on the computer. 99% of the time I'll be entering contacts or updating them directly on my phone and not on the computer.

    On the iPhone sync screen under the "INFO" tab do you have any of the "Advanced" options set?

    I think I recall seeing some place there was a setting to have the computer override the phone contacts when syncing or vice versa. This might have been it but there might have been something some other place too.

    Correct. Scrolling down to the bottom of the Info page gives you the "Advanced" options, which you can adjust accordingly.
