Hi E's, I have 2 sources with outlook contacts, one in my PC (in outlook program) and other in my mobile phone HTC.
I get a new mobile phone, the iphone4, and I want copy contacts from HTC to Iphone.
My idea is save all my contacts that stay in my PC (security copy), and delete after the copy.
Copy HTC contacts to PC.
Synchronize Iphone with PC to put my contacts in Iphone.
Put again the original contacts in my PC.

But for that I need to copy my contacts to a file, but just the contacts.
In other way, maybe have a more simple solution to transfer contacts from HTC to Iphone?!

The best regards, JC

Hi, joaochagas.

I don't use either phone, so I can't offer any advice on whether there's an easier way.  I can offer advice on copying contacts though.  You don't need to copy them to a file.  You can simply create a second contacts folder in Outlook, you might name it "Backup Contacts", and copy your contacts to it.  Once you're done copy to the phone you can copy the contacts from the backup folder back to the contacts folder.  The simple way to copy them all is via drag-and-drop.  Select all the contacts using CTRL+A, then simply drag-and-drop them to the other folder.

Right-click on a the folder you want new folder to appear under and select "New Folder".  Give the folder a name and set "Folder contains" to "Contact Items".
