Currently Being ModeratedNov 9, 2008 9:51 AM (in response to Trinity)Right, of course. I did think of that but as I said, I was hoping that in 2008 we might not have to go through the ridiculous amount of inconvenience of deleting all the contacts in the address book on the Mac, just to satisfy the needs of one iPhone.
Unless of course it's possible to save the address book contacts somewhere, then delete, then sync, then disconnect the iPhone, then restore the addresses into the Address Book?
