    Transfer Contacts from iPhone

    Hello,

    I am an Iphone convert, love the nexus one, side by side comparison it blows the iphone away, and I have all the same apps I had on iphone...

    BUT, I am having trouble syncing contacts from iphone, I went to the itunes info tab and selected sync address book contacts/sync google contacts, then on my nexus hit refresh and I have no phone numbers still, I have 400 contacts with email addressess, but no number?

    Anyone know how to do this? (I am using a MAC, BTW)

    Thanks,

    G

    Are your contacts synced already with your gmail account? If you log into your account do you see your contacts in your gmail broswer

    they werent synced with gmail until now, I just hit apply/sync again, and now I have many phone numbers, but it appears my newest ones were overridden, strange since I backed up my iphone just before doing that and the contacts should have been new, im missing probably a year worth

    ok try re doing the sync. there should be an app for your iphone where you can use google sync, sync all your contacts to your google gmail, when that is done sync them to your phone.

    I think it may be too late. My iphone now has the corrupted contacts (old contacts list), and when I re-sync trying to override the phone from the computer settings it is the same.

    Perhaps there is some way to go back in time to the device or computer and retrieve the old contacts file?

    Let this serve as a warning to others! Be careful with contacts, another back-up method off-computer would probably be a good idea first, stupid itunes crap is so proprietary...good riddance.

    Depends how badly you need the contacts.

    But you can always pull the Itunes Backup databases, and use sqlitebrowser to open the database files.... But that is LOTS of work and the numbers don't have the names connected to them.

    yeah, probably not worth it at this point, anything missing I can get back as people call me or I run into them, between facebook and email I should have it all covered...

    Itunes has a section in the contacts areas where you can sync contacts with gmail. I set mine up and within minutes all my contacts from mac address book were in google contacts this worked like a charm.
