    my sister just got an iphone, and uses windows xp, and yahoo for her email. She got her phone contacts from her sms card. The problem occured when she imported her yahoo emails, it merged them into the same contacts as her phone contacts. She has thousands of email contacts, and doesn't want to scroll through thousands of names to search for her phone contacts. How does she seperate them? Obviously, its ok for email, because you start to type the persons name, and it quickly lists them, but phone, its much more of a pain

    If she has all the contacts she needs on her computer she can plug her phone in go to itunes>iphone in the sidebar>info>scrool down to advance and click on contacts. and the next time shes sync her phone the contacts on her computer will go into her phone.

    well, the problem is that she wants seperate phone and email contacts, because she has hundreds of people she emails, but would never call, and doesn't need to search through them when making a call
