    I'd like to transfer all of my contacts on my iphone to my macbook pro but I can't seem to find a way to do this. Is it even possible?

    Just sync it with the iPhone and you will be good. Works great. Also if you add a bookmark in safari on the iphone, it will ad this to your current safari bookmark on the macbook.

    yeah, this is standard in the syncing, just check off the option in the syncing options, but if you already have a bunch of address book contacts and dont want them to mess up your iphone's contact list you will have to do this:

    first, create a new contact group in address book called like "iPhone" or something

    second, plug in your iphone and let it sync

    third, go to the contacts section on the device listing in itunes, check sync all contacts, then below that, check off add iphone contacts to a specific group (not sure if that's the exact wording), and select the group that you just made

    sync again (make sure to do this)

    now, go back to the contacts tab and change syncing from all contacts, to only the selected groups, and only select the group you just made, then sync again
