While the iPhone is connected to the MBP via USB, and in iTunes, will I lose any information stored in my Address Book on the MBP if I sync while checking the box labeled "Sync Address Book Contacts" under the Info tab? Or lose any Contact info on the phone that isn't in Address Book?

I'm trying to add any info(mainly email addresses) I currently have in the Address Book to my Contacts currently stored on the iPhone. All contacts on the iPhone currently only have phone numbers.

I've read some threads where some have had contact info deleted, and I would like to avoid that.

    A Sync should harmonise the two BUT there seems to be a huge bug in iOS which is causing the computer to override the iPhone so you will only have computer content left on the phone after sync.

    I've posted in a quite a few threads that have raised this problem. It is certainly one I have encountered.
