iPhone Contacts

I've noticed on my iPhone that if I go to Phone - Contacts - Groups - Exchange Global Address List and I search a contact, all I get is the basic contact information.

The only info that is displayed is: title, company name, phone numbers and email address.


Is there a way to include Location, address, city, state, zip code, department, company, alias like in the Outlook client on a desktop system?

I believe the amount of information you get through the Exchange Global Address list is configurable by your Exchange system administrator.

Hi Akahan,
I administer Exchange but I don't know how to configure the GAL to include the following onto the iPhone:  location, address, city, state, zip code, department, company, alias.

Do you have documentation on how I'd accomplish this to make these attribute show on the iPhone?

why not use the iphone data recovery?   you just need download it on the computer, by the way, i tell you that it is totally free . then connect your iPhone with the computer, you will see the contacts completely.  after that ,you can backup the contacts and export them to the computer. if you feel the contacts on your iphone are not so detailed,you can do a data recovery action.

Hmm, I've got nothing on this?  Guess there really isn't a good/easy way to complete this.
