    I have a question about contacts.

    I currently have an iPhone 3G. My wife will be using an older iPhone 2.5g.

    There are many contact is my address book that she wants on her phone.

    How can I copy my contact list to her phone?

    Is it possible for us to share one contact list via Mobile Me?

    You could just set up two collections in your Address Book, and just put people in multiple collections that both of you want.

    I don't have an iPhone in front of me, but I'll try my best. In settings on both phones go to "mail, contacts and calendars" and then set up a mobile me account on it and make sure after that you switch "sync contact" to on. Also on the computer with all of your contacts, make sure that you are synchronizing your contacts with mobile me (system preferances -> mobile me -> sync)

    After that you should be set. That is how I keep 3 macs, and an iphone all in sync.

    Hope that helps

    Thanks. So I gather that my wife's iPhone can "read and write" to my Mobile Me account's contact list?

    I guess that would be correct as long as I enter the Mobile Me password on her phone right?
