Though Apple provides no way to sync contacts from computer to iPhone, you can use iPhone Care Pro (Tenorshare) to do it for free.
As you connect your iPhone to computer, you can then add the contacts on your computer to iPhone. The utility can be downloaded from CNET: iPhone Care Pro 64 bit

On your iPhone, make sure that

  • in the Settings app
    • Mail, Contacts...-->iCloud has Contacts enabled (green button)
On your Mac, make sure that
  • System Preferences-->iCloud has Contacts checked.
If the iPhone still doesn't sync,
  • connect the USB cable from the iPhone to the Mac,
  • open iTunes,
  • make sure that "automatically sync iPhone when connected" is checked in the Summary window of your iPhone (in iTunes);
  • and click "sync" in the lower right corner of your iTunes window.

SOURCE: Sync Outlook Contacts & iPhone

You need to creat "Folders" in outlook and move all contacts to the different folders. These "Folders" are then recognized as "Groups" in iTune and you can sync Contacts by Groups.

iTune does not recognize Outlook's "Categories", or even Outlook's "Groups"; iTune only recognizes "Folders" as groups.

Problem solved.

SOURCE: Can I sync my iCloud and gmail contacts together?

Check out this video explaining the process in less than a minute.

  1. First, go into System Preferences > iCloud and uncheck the contacts box (that's right).
  2. Open up Address Book and go to Preferences > Accounts. Check the "Synchronize with Google" box and enter your Google credentials when prompted.
  3. Head back into System Preferences > iCloud and recheck the Contacts box. It will ask you if you want to merge your computer's Contacts with your iCloud contacts; pick Merge. Then, it'll tell you that it's going to turn off Google sync, which is okay, so hit OK.

How to transfer contacts from iphone to pc?


I had a nokia E71 and downloaded software from the NOKIA WEBSITE. you can use it to transfer your nokia contacts into windows contacts.

Then you have to download Itunes from APPLE and use CLOUD SYNCH to send your windows contacts (which would have your nokia contacts intergrated) to your iphone. I used the charger and plugged into the USB of the computer for both. its alot of work but possible - and faster than manual re-enter.

note: some contacts on my nokia for example if a phone number description was changed from "work" or "home" to lets say "work cell" windows contacts did not understand custom categories and some numbers did not transfer correctly, eg, "work cell" became "fax" or nothing at all. There was some editing within windows contacts to correct the issue so that Itunes would interpret the contacts correctly.

In short:
-Nokia software
synch contacts to windows contacts

-windows contacts
check everything looks good

-itunes & cloud synch software
import windows contacts and synch phone.
(Cloud synch may be a separate download)


as far is I know there is not an easier way.

Phone number backup


You can do it via following steps.1.Update iTunes to the latest version if you have not updated recently. To find out if you need to update, launch iTunes and click "File" followed by "Check for updates." If you are on a Mac, click "iTunes" followed by "Check for updates." If you do not have the latest version installed, a dialog box will appear asking you if you want to download the latest version. Click the "Download iTunes" button.
2.Connect your iPhone to your computer using the USB cable that came with your iPhone. iTunes will automatically recognize your iPhone and an icon will appear in the left-hand column of iTunes.
3.Click the iPhone icon and the "Summary" pane will appear.
4.Click the "Contacts" tab located across the top of iTunes.
5.Click the check box next to the "Sync contacts with" field.
6.Click the drop-down menu in the "Sync contacts with" field and select a program to sync your contacts with. If you are on a Windows machine, you can choose from four options: Yahoo! address book, Windows address book, Google contacts, or Outlook. If you are on a Mac, your contacts will be synced with the Address Book utility.
7.Click the "Sync" button and all of the contacts on your iPhone will be saved to your computer's address book. Included in every contact will be the contact's phone number. Subsequent syncing will add any new contacts you have entered manually on your iPhone. Hope it can help you.

I have a palm centro and change to iphone. how can I move?


My wife and I just bought an iPhone and wanted to transfer our contacts from our Samsung i500 Palm phone. All the instructions I found online suggested going through Outlook, but that didn't work for me for a variety of reasons. I found this other method that worked really well.
  1. Bring up Palm Desktop. Make sure your Palm phone is sync'ed up. Show the Address page, select all contacts (Ctrl-A), and export them with File, Export vCard... This puts all contact information into a single file as a sequence of vCards.
  2. Bring up Windows Address Book. You can find this in Start, All Program, Accessories, Address Book.
  3. Using Windows Explorer, drag the vCard file you created in step 1 to the Windows Address Book window. I had never used Windows Address Book, so it was empty. If yours isn't empty, you'll have to decide whether you want to merge your contacts.
  4. When you drop the file, you'll get a window asking you to confirm the first contact. Press OK. Another window will come up for the second contact. Press OK until all windows are gone. It's easiest to hold down the Enter key.
  5. Bring up iTunes with your iPhone plugged in. Go to your iPhone page, to the Info tab, and configure it to sync from Windows Address Book. Click Apply in the lower-right corner of the window.
  6. Sync your iPhone. Verify that your contacts transferred over.
  7. Tell iTunes to stop sync'ing with Windows Address Book, since you probably only wanted a one-way sync. Your contacts will be backed up anyway by iTunes, so the Address Book sync feature doesn't buy you much.


OR





Sync your palm to outlook, then sync your outlook to your iPhone. It'll grab the outlook contacts and calendar.
