iTunes sync (replace) Verizon iPhone 4 Contacts with iMac Address Book
Posted on 2011-02-26
How do I *replace* current Verizon 4 Contacts with *all* iMac Address Book contacts.
I tried iTunes Info > Sync Address Book Contacts > All Contacts + Advanced > Replace Information on this iPhone > Contacts
Text at bottom of window says: "During the next sync only, iTunes will replace the selected information on this iPhone with information from this computer."
The above did not work as expected. I went to considerable effort to manually update the iMac
Address Book hoping to 'replace', that is, *delete all* iPhone contacts and replace with iMac Address Book. How do I do this?
Example problem: in iMac Address Book there is one entry (Card?) for 'Sam Jones' (not real name); in Verizon 4 iPhone Contacts there are (after above sync) 3 entries for Sam Jones and 2 entries for Jones Sam. Only one of these entries is correct - same as iMac. iPhone 4 contacts were not deleted.
Seems 'replace' means add more data to iPhone and don't delete anything not identical to iMac Address Book.
