Fix, Organize and synchronize Outlook contacts and Iphone Contacts

Q: Fix, Organize and synchronize Outlook contacts and Iphone Contacts

Hello, I have multiple issues regarding address books and contacts. I am currently trying to organize multiple address books on my Win 2000 desktop(outlook express) my laptop XP (outlook 2007) and my IPhone 3G. They are a mess because of old cell phone backups combined with address book entries. I now have multiple entries for numerous contacts etc.
After organizing all these contacts/address books I would like to import to my new Win 7 desktop (outlook 2010 beta) and retire my Win 2000 desktop. These are all stand alone computers that are not networked other than through a router to share broadband access.
I tried searching for software to help combine and organize all three of these but had no luck.
I then tried manually updating all my contacts on my laptop and Iphone but I ran into a glich of sorts. After making the changes on my Iphone and doing a ITunes sync, some of the contacts disappeared. Right now I am not sure how many, but I noticed a few of the ones I use alot are gone on both my laptop and Iphone.
I do not subscribe to or use the "mobile me" feature.
I have spent quite a bit of time searching the net without finding a solution.
Any help you can provide would be much appreciated!
Thank You!

Hello knowledgeable ones:

Until last week I was using outlook 2003, an older versions of itunes, and an ipod, and was able to back up my outlook contacts and calender through itunes and right to the ipod, no problem.

Now, however, I have had to upgrade everything so they can handshake correctly. This has meant going to Outlook 2007, the latest itunes, an iphone 5, and the icloud. My entire goal is to have the contacts in outlook match the contacts in both the cloud and the phone.

In using the icloud control on both of these, I now have the following: a variety of calenders in my outlook with names like calender in icloud, home in icloud, and my calender, all in lovely pastel shades. The phone has one calendar with only the occasionally dupes on a given date.

The phone, however, is a disaster, with as many as three dupes of the same name. Looking at Outlook, I have a slew of contacts, some dupes, many that I though i had deleted from outlook. Also two categories of contacts, icloud and my contacts, with sub-directories in each. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that the contacts tab under my contacts was completely blank following a sync to the cloud, only to then find the other five versions, which, of course, I would like to have agree with each other. The icloud interface on line shows dupe contacts as well.

Hi everyone!

What is the best way to sync my emails, contacts, and calendar with my Outlook 2010 (win7 pc), iPhone, and iPad2?

Basically, I want to send/receive emails to all devices, and update my calendar and contacts on my Outlook, and then have my iOS devices update automatically be synced with my Outlook contacts and calendar, and vice versa.

I've used Microsoft Exchange in the past to do this, but it seems like over kill... and it's a little overcomplicated for me. I was hoping I could just do all this with Gmail, but it seems that I need MS Exchange to do it that way too.

Any help and advice is very appreciated!!!
I'll be on the forum all day, so let me know if I need to clarify what I'm asking.

Thank you!!

Hi johnbigbootie89,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Let me apologize that it took so long for someone to reply to your request - but it is now active and I think we'll be able to resolve it. In fact, I think I have just what you need.

Check out the following article: Importing contacts from Windows Contacts folder | MSOutlook.info. Make sure you use the Vista procedure. It seems the article was designed specifically for this purpose so I have high hopes it will accomplish your objective. You do not drag the contents (which is essentially copy/paste) - you use import/export instead.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

So, on Sunday I had a few too many drinks and lost my iPhone. 02 are sending me a new sim, and hopefully I can get my old number back. Because when I had an iPhone, I synced it with iTunes, I'm wondering if my contacts have been saved in iTunes or somewhere else. Now with the research I've done online, people have said they can sync them back, but that's because they still have their iPhone to sync back to, I've lost mine, I'm wondering if there's a way I can access the sync'd contact info without actually having an iPhone, any help is greatly appreciated.

Were you syncing your contacts to Google or Outlook? Because if you were then you will be safe. The contact information will be synced back into your iPhone. However, if you are relying on the iTunes Backup, I suggest to be very careful how you do it. When I changed PC and started syncing my iPhone to the new PC, My contact data got corrupted and I lost my music (I managed to get back after a few days and headaches). Thank goodness I could go back to my Google and Outlook Contacts that I sync with my iPhone.

The link you provided in your edit is for Vista but I think I may have found what you're looking for.

The folder is hidden so, click on the Start Orb and type (without quotes) "%appdata%" and hit enter.

It the resulting Explorer window navigate to Apple Computer/MobileSync/Backup.

I took a look inside mine and just saw a bunch of data files. I imagine the info you're looking for is in there somewhere. Hope this helps.

Yeah, it appears in the article you linked that the guy used a Mac to decrypt the binaries for the address book data. He said "ideally" you'd use a Mac but didn't give any other alternative.

Once found how can I print them so that I can enter them one by one on a different phone?
 

A:iPhone Contacts and Messages

You are going about this the wrong way. You can sync or backup your contacts on gmail contacts. Open a gmail account (its free) then (with phone connected to your PC) go on iTunes under Info and select Sync Contacts with Google Contacts. Presto! Your contacts are now online. Then, you can sync your next smart phone to Google Contacts. You can do the same with Outlook, but that is not free, but if you do it this way, you can export your contacts out of Outlook and print them out as you wish.

Please note that this is not Windows Live (Hotmail) but the offline Windows application with that name.

A:How to export iPhone contacts to Windows Live Mail?

If you want to directly export the contacts use a small application intended to run on your PC called CopyTrans Contacts.

1. Run the tool on your computer and connect your iPhone. You can download the program from here: export iPhone contacts

2. Once your iPhone contacts appear, drag and drop a selection to a folder on your PC

3. Select the type of contact files you wish your iPhone contacts to get exported in. Windows Live Mail recognizes Windows Contacts, so select that format


4. Your iPhone contacts will be saved to your PC. Now go to your Windows Live Mail application and import the contacts from the folder on your PC where you saved them in

I've had an Android for almost 2 years, and although I really love it I'm considering getting an iPhone when my contract ends (I have an iPod touch and just really starting liking some of the apps and user experience)

The only issue for me is I'm a heavy Google user: gmail, google calendar, google contacts, etc.

I love how right now I can add a contact or calendar event on my phone, and it immediately syncs to my Google account (or vice-versa syncs to my phone).

I did a bit of research so far on how this would work on an iPhone, and it seems there are apps but that you still need iTunes? Is that true? Or is there an app that will mimic the functionality I get on my Android?

I do plan to jailbreak it, if that helps any.

I currently use Outlook 2010 because I have a paid license but I'm willing to upgrade.

This works Ok with iCloud but what I don't like is that I can't make my icloud calendar the default in Outlook so I don't get reminders on my PC. What I end up doing is manually copying critical appointments from my icloud calendar to my Outlook default calendar if I want to be sure to get a reminder on my PC!. This isn't ideal though. Does anyone have a better solution? I read that the latest Outlook 2016 doesn't sync at all so I can't upgrade Office. I wish MS and Apple would decide to work together instead of trying to defeat each other!!

I have a need to find a Contacts/Address-book/or integrated mail application that permits the lockdown of the contacts data. Ideally, the info stashed in that Contacts application would be password-protected, encrypted, and could be written directly to a removable device location - in other words, ability to change the default destination for the store to a USB or otherwise removable "drive".

Anyone know of such, or know if there is a version of Outlook or Thunderbird or ???xyz that would have such features configurable?

A:Secure/encrypted Contacts application? Or mail w/contacts

Right out of box, Outlook has an option to set a password on each of its datafiles (which contain both mails and contacts) which is asked each time it's opened or attached to an existing installation. But I don't know if it's really encrypted or how easy is to crack those.

Another option may be to use an encryption tool like Truecrypt. It can create a virtual drive which is in fact a regular encrypted file on the disk (somewhat similar to zip files, but with a really strong encryption). The idea is to setup such a "drive", and then put the sensitive data files there. Outlook allows to locate its data files anywhere, not sure about Thunderbird.

i had updated & fine tuned my NEW Contact List [NCL] with 1200+ Contacts... without signing into my Hotmail, Live, or Messenger Account. i usually have no need to sign in as i am able to receive/send emails via WLM without having to sign in. my NCL Contacts was working excellent with WLM [for many weeks] and i was able to send/receive emails etc as normal.

Windows than suggested that i update/download WLE [which i accepted]... and i have now lost my NCL Contacts... after the WLE update/download.

the WLE download/update has made the system find & display an old online contact list which is of no relevance to me now.

OK, this should be simple. I did a clean install of Windows 8. Of course, before doing the clean install, I backed up all of my data including the "Contacts" folder under my user name. The clean install progressed as expected (I've done clean installs many times previously). When I copied my information back, I also copied the contents of the Contacts folder back.

Now I want to import my contacts into the new People App. I have a live ID and everything seems to be working fine, except I cannot get my contacts imported. I've gone to the contacts folder and exported the contacts as a CSV file (there are only two export options, CSV and vCard). When I go to the People App and try to "import from a file", I get an error message saying my CSV file is NOT a CSV file. Just to make sure I tried all my options, I went back and tried exporting as a vCard file and when I try to import I get an error message saying there is an internal error.

I've searched the net and, from what I can find, I seem to be doing the right thing using a CSV file, but am not getting the end result. I've even seen some info on Microsoft's site which tells me to do exactly what I've done. Obviously, I must be missing something.

Anybody done this conversion from Windows Contacts to the People App and made it work? If so, what did you do differently than I've described above.

Thanks.

A:Moving Contacts from Windows Contacts into People App

If it's not working by importing to the Mail App directly you could try to log into your mail account online through the browser and access People from there. On the main page there is an option to import from file and through that you have the option of CSV or Outlook. If it works there then your Mail App should just update with your contacts at next sync.

Hi. I have somewhat of a weird problem here. Some of my MSN contacts were randomly blocked/unblocked. And later, certain contacts were not "added" as a contact on web messenger (preventing me from talking to them on Hotmail's web messenger). There was also an issue where even though me and my friend had each other added, we were appearing offline to each other without being blocked. He did not see me back online until he deleted and re-added me.

It just seemed like general hectic chaos, and after logging back into windows and fixing my blocks/unblocks, I had to "add" people to my messenger on the web because they did not appear added/online on messenger on the web, even though they were added and functional on the client itself.

I know my explanation here is a little chaotic too, but that's really because I don't know WTF went on here. But I DO know for sure it is not a virus since a majority of my time is spent on Linux, and I change my password constantly (while in Linux as well.) So it is highly unlikely to be malware.

My theory is this is some server-sided glitch. I've done googling, and that seemed to be the general consensus from results like these:

This also apparently happens to my thread who himself a techie. He also uses Linux.

However, I did not come across a bleepingcomputer thread yet. And this is the first time it ever happening to me.

Hi

When I create a new contact manually, it is be created in the "Suggested Contacts", rather than the real "Contacts" folder. How do make (Outlook2010/Win7) create new contacts in the ACTUAL contacts folder?

Many thanks

J

P.S. I absolutely hate Suggested Contacts with a passion because things keep disappearing there and then not synchronizing with my mobile phone and personally I would kill it off completely if I only know how.

The Windows Contacts (Windows 7) only has "organize" "share with" and "burn options". It does not have options for "add" or "print".

In Vista this was due to the folder being the wrong type. I right clicked in the empty white space looking for "customize this folder", but it didn't appear.

A:[SOLVED] Cannot Add New Contacts to Windows Contacts

Make sure you are in the right folder C:\Users\UserName\Contacts There should be a Double sided arrow to the right of the last entry on the tool bar pointing to the right. Clicking this should give you Display Additional Commands. Here you can add New Contact etc.

I have upgraded my Computer from Vista and Windows live mail 2011 to Windows 7 and Windows live mail 2012.

Live Mail 2011 used as Contacts just the Vista Contacts.
Live Mail 2012 is having it's own Contacts which are not compatible with Windows 7 Contacts.

I found a way to import Windows 7 Contacts as Live Mail 2012 Contacts but no way to export it as .contact file again (export can be done as CSV or VCF file only).

Since I still want to synchronize my Windows 7 contacts with an old Vista Computer the Import is not a solution for me.

Is there a way to persuade Live Mail to use the Windows Contacts again
and where are these new Live Mail Contacts saved?

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Contacts seems not to be used.

Walter

A:Windows live mail 2012 contacts incompatible with Windows 7 contacts

Hi Walter, welcome to Seven Forums.

Your best plan is to access your mail account directly, the use .csv format to export / import them into WLM 2012.
If you don't use WLM signed-in they wont be remembered.

Hello all:

First time poster.

In the folder/tree view on the left in Outlook 2007 (Windows XP Pro) the Contacts folder is not showing up.

In Outlook 2003, it was right there underneath Calendar, which, by the way, is also missing from the Folder/Tree view.

I can access my Contacts via the big tab at the bottom but I want the tree/folder view as it broke up the hierarachy very nicely.

Any ideas?

Thanx in advance,

--d.
 

A:Outlook Contacts not showing up in Tree/Folder view (Outlook 2007)

Use "Folder List" view to see all of your folders in a single list. Either click the little folder icon in the Navigation Pane on the left-hand side or click Go | Folder List in the Menu Bar.

I have Outlook 2003. Until two days ago when my fiance changed jobs (and her email address). I went and changed it. Now when I type in addresses in the TO field, it will only recognize people in my company's global address book, and those contact that I frequently type. When I go to send an email to someone I don't normally write to much, or my fiances new address, it cannot automatically find the contact, and when I go to find it to put in the TO field manually, it will not give me the option in the pulldown on the address book like it used to to select contacts.

When i open the address book and go under options, it will not give me the option to add Contacts to the searchable list of addresses either. What gives?
 

A:Cannot get contacts in Outlook 03

Figured it out....

Go to TOOLS - EMAIL ACCOUNTS - View or Change Existing directories.... - Add - Outlook address book.

Not sure why it just disappeared all of a sudden, by after the program prompting me to restart it, I can now see them!
