    I have been trying to find a way to sync my outlook contacts which are in groups to my iphone. When I sync for the first time, all of my contacts sync fine, but they were not in groups. I went to the apple store and they said its because I don't have a mac, I have a pc. I also have outlook 2007 and vista. I tried Mobile me and it kind of worked, but really slow. Can someone please help me!!!!!!!

    It's because you don't have a Mac.

    Also, how can MobileMe be slow? It changes in seconds on the iPhone, and takes 15 minutes or less to update on a computer.


    I want my $1,000,000

    There has to be away around it besides buying a mac. Grouping contacts is a basic necessity.

    Go to me.com, log in and under contacts. Bottom left there should be a plus sign where you can add a new group. Then you should be able to sync the phone and get the new group added in your phone.

    I did go to mobile me and downloaded the free trial. It worked for a little bit. I loaded about 4 groups, and it sync fine on my iphone, then 1 of the folders deleted from my iphone and even though I had the other 3 folders, it added 4 groups on my iphone called "group name" I'm guessing its somethng from mobile me, so it just doesnt work right. Also the other problem with mobile me is that when you go to the calendor, there is no way of setting up an alrm 15 minutes before your appointment.

    Thats the problem I'm having. I hope mobileme can work out these issues. If not, I guess I'm going to have to buy a bb or the blackjack.
