    I know you can sync address book contacts to your phone using iSync and Bluetooth, however my question is if you can do exactly the reverse?

    I'd like to transfer all the contacts in my phone to Address Book, or some other crude form if at all possible. I have a Motorola E815 that is set up to work with iSync via Bluetooth...but i'm not seeing this option.

    Any ideas?

    It would sync both ways- it just doesn't transfer from address book to your phone, but in fact would sync them. Doesn't that do what you want? Syncing doesn't mean a one way transfer if data- but syncronizing of all the data to be the same on both. It works that way with my palm and syncing it.

    I would assume it is like iPod Touch I do where I click to sync Address book on the device (iPhone or iPod Touch) with the computer iTunes account so that computer now syncs the addresss book. Look under tabs for your iPhone in iTunes and you should see the option.

    adding to sets of contacts from two different phones

    Hi, do you know if you can add together two sets of contacts from two different phones and add the combination to one of those phones? and how can you simply view on your computer your contacts and the data you have synchronized from your phone?
