    Same--but for windows XP

    I experience a similar issue and it's driving me crazy. I do all of my editing of contact information on my phone--never on my PC. I want a reliable way to back this information up and prefer to use Windows Address Book. The problem is that every time I start with blank information in WAB, instead of updating it with info from the phone, it seems to update the *iphone* with "information" from WAB (which is no information at all.) it's killing me to figure out why. Also, I am aware of one "possible" fix that others have suggested--have at least one contact in WAB. i created a test one and it didn't work. Also, I know about the selection in Itunes "Replace information on this iphone" and it is NOT selected. Can anyone help?

    Soon iCloud will sync all your contacts for you.

    But check to make sure "sync contacts" is checked in iTunes?

    Correct about iCloud. But even if they select sync contacts if you do not have those contacts saved anywhere it will sync a blank contacts list.
