Keep Exchange Contacts Seperate on an IPhone 4

Posted on 2011-10-12
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am a system admin for a small company.  I have a user at work who would like to sync his IPhone 4 with his Exchange 2007 SP2 email account.  Setting this up is a snap and is working well.  However, he has had his IPhone for about a year, and has a LOT of personal contacts on his phone.  He would rather not mix his personal contacts with the ones he uses at work, so he has the Contacts sync turned off of his Exchange account options on his phone till we figure this out.  Is there any way to have a seperate Exchange contacts area on the IPhone 4?  Thanks!

    The iPhone is able to maintain seperate lists, phone based contacts are separate from the exchange Gal which is where your company email accounts are kept.

    I find that the Exchange contacts appear in Contacts - not in the GAL.  These are specific to the user - not the company address book.

    The only option I am aware is the group which should be displayed.
    You have an option to chose the set of contacts which needs to be displayed.

    Go to the contacts from iPhone
    On top - You have an button named "Groups"
    Click on that and Just select "Contact" if only phone contacts need to be visible.
     Else, select the one with email address to show only the official contacts.
     Or opt for All contacts which will display all.

    Good luck
