Creating a second Address Book file?

I have contacts I may never need again but do not want to delete them. I certainly duo not need to wade through them on my iPhone.

How can I have an archive file that I can load if I ever really need an old contact?


Thanks.

Not sure you can do this directly on your iPhone.  What are you using for email outside of the iPhone?  Gmail?

Actually, I was thinking the second one could be on the Mac, for backup purposes. This would keep me from deleting contacts I most likely would never need again. Instead, I'd put them in the archive address book folder.

Yes - but what are you using today for email?  What's your domain (Gmail, yahoo, comcast)?  Without that, I can't give you any good ideas, unless you want to manually enter them all into a spreadsheet.  But doing an export of your contacts if they just have basic info such as name, email, phone, etc., to a CSV or similar file and storing it on your MAC would probably be perfect, if you're rarely, if ever, going to need them.

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Well, can I export from Address Book to a CSV file? If so, I could export to a backup file for safe keeping.

Yeh, I'd export to the CSV, then you can read that CSV with any spreadsheet app like Excel, probably Google Apps, etc.  Even a word processor will read it, just not in a pretty format.
