Hi,

I have around 150000 contacts that I want to sync/store online. I used to use Gmail but it has a limit of 25000. Anyone know of a good way to store them online so I can access them from an iDevice?

I'm not sure if I was clear enough. Please message me if you need any clarification.
Your help is much appreciated.

where are your 150000 contacts?

saved locally in Outlook 2010?

I do not think that there is an online provider which gives you over 25000 contacts.

If your ultimate goal is to export the contacts in Outlook and have them import them into a iOS device, try to export all contacts in one vcf file using vCard Wizard for Outlook.

Them, upload them to your dropbox and finally import the vcf in your iDevice using IS Contacts Kit Free.

Why not save them to Excel, upload them to Google and let it convert it to a Google Spreadsheet, now you have access to your contacts through your Gmail account which you can access on your iDevice as well.

entic.net have cloud LDAP services, and for $10/year you can store unlimited contacts in their LDAP server.
They have a nice client for iPhone, and LDAP can be easily configured as a directory in Outlook or any other mail client.

What do you actually want to do with them from the iOS device?
