    So I downloaded all my contacts from my phone via bluetooth. When I go to import them into Address Book, I find out that the application is missing. I re-installed using the recovery discs that my MacBook Pro came with, and still nothing. I've looked online and still don't know what to do, Any help would be great. Thanks all in advance.

    I am pretty sure that you can use the OS X DVDs that came with your mac to install individual programs that came on it.

    Yeah, if you reinstalled OSX then I can't understand how it couldn't be there. What sort of reinstall did you do? Also, you may or may not need Pacifist to extract Address Book from the install DVD. :)

    Sorry, I was away for a bit. To answer your questions, I inserted the MacBook Pro Mac OS X Install Disc 1 and double clicked and installed "Install Bundled Software Only" assuming that Address Book would be on there, but now that I think about it, Address Book is probably a part of Mac OS X itself, not a bundled program. I will try using the program as stated above and see if that works.

    Thanks guys and girls.

    Will keep you updated.

    You'll probably have to use Pacifist to get it back.

    The only other issue is that an OS X update might have zeroed it out. That and Address Book could have additional updates to up from updates.
