    I have a MacbookAir running 10.7.5 and a new "used" jailbroke 3G iphone.

    I'm trying to sync my contacts in my macbook with my iPhone.

    I've synced it to the iPhone like I'm supposed to but can't find on the iPhone where any of the contacts I've synced are. When I go into the phone's contacts after the sync there are no contacts.

    A link told me to go to Finder to access them and sync them manually. The link said to find them here.... <home>/<library>/<application support>.

    When I go there there are no files relating to Address Book or Contacts.

    But I do have contacts in my Address Book whenever I open it up in my Macbook.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Sounds like either your iOS or OSX is a revision behind that feature.

    Missing Address Book.....Continued

    I just went to my backup disc and using the Finder search steps there is an Address Book File in there.

    Can I copy that "whole" file back to my macbook? And if so where do I put it?

    A while back I read something about not transferring Metdata files...
