So it had been some time since sync'ing to my computer. My rule is to only change what's on the phone and sync. It has always infuriated me how there is no option in iTunes where you can check off "iPhone overrides all", "Computer overrides all", "Merge contacts", etc like on the Blackberry setup. So what I've done many times is delete my Outlook file and sync everything over. YEP YOU GUESSED! THE *****ING ITUNES PIECE OF RAT EXCREMENT ERASED EVERYTHING THIS TIME. NOOOOOOOOOOO NOT BEFORE WHEN IT DIDN'T REALLY MATTER JUST THIS TIME I am so pissed. Its not a complete disaster as I can export my work database (THATS OUT OF DATE ) and go from there. HOW STUPID CAN THEY BE TO NOT HAVE 2-3 LITTLE CHECK BOXES. HECK JUST ONE WOULD BE ENOUGH "IPHONE OVERRIDES ALL". What better option might there be? How do I access the various backups iTunes creates and apply it? and no I did not check off the 'Replace info on iPhone with info on computer' check box at the bottom.
