Hi

Im looking for a way to import a bunch of peoples names into an iphone.  I know there is a concept of a global address book but i dont have an exchange server available.  Im looking for something simple. i.e.  Create a phone list in excel.  Send the file to my iphone.  Boom... there is a new contact group and so when i need to update the info i can just send the same file again.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Sure. If you are willing to spend $2.99, get ExcelContacts from the App store,
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/contacts-excel/id379262343?mt=8

Otherwise, you have to go through iTunes. Save your excel spreadsheet as a CSV file, then open iTunes and the addressbook, select "Import" and load in the contacts from your CSV file.  Once they are imported, you can sync them with the iPhone.

Cheers,
