When I set up syncing I apparently selected Outlook rather than Windows Address Book (OE) for my Contacts. Outlook contains many obsolete contacts which are now stuck on my iPhone. How do I change it now, short of another factory reset?

    Welcome to the discussions,
    this should work: make sure to have all the desired contacts in your Address Book on your PC, change the program to sync from in the info pane in itunes with your phone connected and scroll down to the advanced section and choose "replace contacts on phone during next sync". Your contact ino will be replaced with the info on your computer.
