I have recently had my assistant sync my contacts (approximately 13,500) into one location (MS Outlook) where they have been organized into convenient categories. Howver, now I cannot sync my calendar and other systems with my iPhone. Each time I try to sync the iPhone, the program crashes; I reach Step 3 of 4 -'Syncing contacts' and the program stops working. I have approximately 5.8 GB of space remaining on the iPhone (which currently holds approximately 8000+ contacts. Simply, I'm trying to sync my worlds and believe the contacts capacity might be impeding the phone's ability to sync the other components (i.e. Outlook Calendar) that are very important to me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you kindly.
