    I recently dropped my main laptop and am waiting for a new one to come out before I change, Im using a spare MB for the moment. All my contacts are on mobile me but how do I get them onto the iPhone.

    Many thanks

    all 3 work together (MB, iphone, MM).

    if all your contacts are loaded on your MB via the address book, then they should have instantly synced to the MM server, which in turn would have instantly synced to your iphone.

    doesn't matter. if you are logged into MM and add a contact (as an example), then the contact will later appear on your phone becase MM will "push" that new data to your phone and MB.

    address book where?

    dude......you gotta be way more specific when you're addressing issues here. there are 3 address books (phone, web, MB).

    Be way more specific on your situation and maybe we can help.

    get on any computer with the internet and log in to your MM account.

    updated the MM address book with all your contacts.

    done.

    MM will sync to your phone.

    *you need to have your original MB settings set up to sync automatically. you do this in the MB system pref settings and go to the MobileMe icon
