    Is it possible for me to have all my contacts synced to Mobile Me (to use with the Web Mail) but only have one contacts group (Cell Contacts) sync to my iPhone?

    I'd love to have all my e-mail addresses available online, but I don't want all of them on my iPhone, especially since hardly any of them have any telephone contact information.

    Any help would be great, thanks. :)

    Just been looking at this and it seems you can only sync certain contacts when using manual sync

    What I do with my iphone

    create a contact group called work and have all my work related contacts here
    go into this group on the phone first thing in the morning
    after that every time I go back in it defaults to the work group

    Not sure if thats any help, but it could be a way around it for the moment

    Your best bet here is to create different groups in Address Book (i.e. contacts, email only) and when it pushes to your phone click on the Groups arrow at the top of the screen and then select the group that you want. I've got 4 groups on my phone but like you I only wanted to have a specific group displayed.
