    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!!!!!!!

    outlook dosn't transfer groups to the iphone
    Mobileme does.

    Log into mobile me
    create contact groups by clicking the icon on the left
    drag contacts from the right pane into the left
    logout, reboot your phone for fun and wait 10 minuites for mm to sync

    I tried mobile me and I just wanted to test it out so I got the free version for 60 days, I added 2 groups to test it and it worked fine. Then about 10 minutes later one of the groups was no longer on my iphone anymore. Plus its really slow.

    Try this:

    make sure your push settings are ok on your iphone.
    go into contacts, add a temp contact, exit
    load up safari, close it.
    reboot your phone
    leave it longer than 10 minutes. If after 30, it's still like that then you need a genius.

    it should work fine
