    Hey everyone :)

    I have recently come back to Mac but my iPhone is synced to a Windows PC and I remember that when I did that last time I lost all my contacts when switching so now I want to avoid losing the contacts and was wondering how I could do it when the iPhone refreshes itself for Mac?

    Cheers :)

    Do an export from the Windows application you're using...one you can import into the Mac application you'll be using. That's the safest way.

    the best solution I've found with Windows/iphone is via google and thunderbird/zimbra plugin.

    The window addressbook just does not work in my opinion.

    All the contacts are on my phone not the actual PC, so when I plug the iPhone into the Mac it will reset itself and lose them all.

    Is there a way to avoid it?
