IPhone :: How To Get Out Of Exchange Without Losing All Contacts?
I have all contacts on my iPhone, previously imported from my old phone's SIM card and then added to via Microsoft Outlook (I use a PC at work with Microsoft Exchange).I have now left the Company and want to import all my old contacts from the iPhone to my PC, which I will be using at home. Whenever I try to cancel my old work email account on my iPhone it tells me I will lose all of my contacts. I've obviously not gone ahead at this point but now don't know how to transfer all of my contacts onto my new laptop.

Recently my old work email was closed and all of my contacts disappeared from my iPhone. I've got the email reopened but that is only for the next few days. Under the Info tab in iTunes, it says my Contacts are synced over the air from Microsoft Exchange. OK I knew this, but I never get the option to bring those contacts over to my home laptop. I'm just setting up my new laptop and hope someone will be able to tell me how to get my contacts (and diary if poss, but not vital).I do not have Outlook so what options do I have?

IPhone :: Syncing It To New Computer Without Losing Contacts
im trying to sync my phone to my new computer without losing all my contacts.

i dont care about the photos or music, ive got all the music on my computer anyway..... and the photos i can recover from the phone without syncing.... but as soon as i do the sync its going to clear all my contacts and and start fresh, as there is no history of my phone on my new computer.

ive gone from a broken pc ( its dead, so i cant get the old itunes history) , and now i have a MAC, and im worried that when i say YES to the sync its going to wipe the phone clean and sync it with a contact file that is blank.....

so is there a way i can get the contacts off my phone before i do the sync so i don't lose them..

HTC :: Losing Access To Contacts On 8525
So in the last two weeks my 8525 has started to lose access to Contacts. It will just open a white screen then close. The only way I can figure out to get it working again is to hard reset the phone. I really hate starting over with the Reg edits and loading all the stuff back on the phone. I am guessing I have hard reset the phone 5 times in two weeks. Anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening and/or a quicker fix? The phone has been working fine and no modifications for a few months. At least since the last replacement phone came.

BB Tour 9630 :: Wipe And Restore Without Losing Contacts?
Maybe it's just me, but this BB desktop manager seems to be a real POS. I want to wipe out my BB and then ONLY restore my contacts, however, I do not see any option for that. Also, I think that maybe I can't even restore my contacts since it was being (but not anymore) synched with my company's BES. Am I missing something? Does anyone have a good way I can do this without losing my contacts?

Motorola Atrix 4G :: Contacts Losing Phone Numbers
I own a business and having my contacts phone numbers is an abosolute necessity for me.I've noticed that after importing all my contacts from my SD card (after having setup the phone and creating a MotoBlur account, adding facebook, and a couple of email accounts) that the contacts whom had a Facebook profile, it REMOVED the phone numbers that were previously attached to the contact file.Is there a way to keep the phone from doing this? It did this to each contact that had a facebook profile that didn't have their phone number on their facebook profile.I've tried to go in and edit the contact but it tells me that you can't edit a facebook profile / contact.

IPhone :: How To Go From 2.2.1 To 3.0 Without Losing All Apps?
I have a jailbroken and unlocked 2g iPhone. I already know that I will lose all of my Cydia apps, and I'm ok with that. I don't want to have to re-load all of my apps that I got through the app store though or lose all of my settings. When I upgraded to 2.2.1 and unlocked and jailbroke I thought I did a back-up and restore, but all that were saved were my settings. I had to go back and re-load all of my apps. Is there a way to upgrade, jailbreak, and unlock without having to re-load all of my stuff? I guess I just did it incorrectly last time? Is there a step-by-step or something somewhere?

IPhone :: Keep Losing Service On My 4S?
I had one little problem about two weeks after I bought it, where it suddenly froze up and then shut off and wouldn't turn back on for several hours until I connected it to my computer. Over the passed couple of weeks, I've started having trouble with it.It started as just being slow to connect to internet and to place calls, but it has steadily worsened to the point that I am randomly dropping service in places I've never had a problem with before. I keep dropping calls or calls won't go through at all, and the call quality has gone down. Messages also won't go through, and notifications from my apps won't appear. Even in my Facebook app, I'll recieve the red number telling me I have a new notification, but when I touch it, the notifications screen won't refresh. Today, the little "4G" symbol kept changing to the "E" symbol.

IPhone :: How Do I Update Without Losing Everything?
I bought laptop, downloaded itunes and have recently synced my phone to it. Now my music is on there but no pictures which is fine. But every time I plug my phone in it tells me that there is an update available for 5.1.1. I click update then it sends me a warning message saying updating the iOs 5.1.1. will delete the apps, media, and including the itunes purchases. To preserve the content update it to the computer where i sync music, apps, photos, and videos. Where and how do I do that and if I've already sync my phone, i think, is it safe to continue the update without losing all my music and pictures on my phone?

Some one please help it's been so long since I've done this

IPhone :: 3GS Losing Signal?
I've had an iPhone 3GS on Orange since April 2010, and am waiting to upgrade until the 5 (or whatever they call it) comes out later this year.I've always had a full 3G signal in my house since I have had my iPhone.Around 3 weeks ago, I suddenly noticed one evening that I had no signal, I put it down to a local reception problem or something and ignored it. Later that evening though, I realised that my wife, who has a Blackberry Curve also on Orange, still had a full signal. I also have an iPad 2 3G on Orange, which had full signal still, and then my brother came round with his iPhone 4 on Orange and again had full signal.

The next day I was driving to work and suddenly my signal reappeared, pinging in half a dozen texts and missed call alerts etc. Then when I arrived at work (where I usually get 2-3 bars of signal) again my phone showed No Signal. One of my colleagues has an iPhone 4 on Orange, and sitting on the table right next to my phone was getting 3 bars of 3g signal, where I had nothing. Walking around the town on my lunch break I managed to get 1 bar up and get a text in.

Over the last few weeks this pattern has repeated. I can still go to some places where I can get a full 3g signal. Sometimes I'm driving and the signal comes in for a while then goes. Sometimes I go to larger towns and get a full signal easily. However mostly for the last 3 weeks I'm getting no signal. When at home, if I go out of my house.

I have tried a normal restore, a reset and a DFU reset. Funnily enough these all seem to make it suddenly work again at home for about half an hour, then it disappears again.I've read about some people having a problem with jailbroken phones, but this phone never has been.I'm guessing there could be something wrong with the internal ariel, but it puzzles me why it still sometimes picks up a signal. Is there a signal amplifier in the phone that could have gone wrong and it's making it harder to find the signal?

IPhone :: Losing 3G When Available And Switching To EDGE
I have the new 3GS and in a lot of places where 3G is really available, my iPhone switches to EDGE.If I switch the 3G option off and then back on, then I correctly hook to 3G.I did some test with a friend of mine who has a 3G, not 3GS, and his iPhone works fine.Even when we get back home by train on the evening, he stays on 3G almost for the entire trip whereas my iPhone 3GS remains in EDGE unless I switch OFF/ON..I did some investigation in the iPhone forums about the Web, and this problems appears often on some french speaking forums...So it looks like I'm not alone.

Is this a known hardware problem? An OS3 problem that could be fixed?Anyone reported it to Apple? Thanks for any comment if you experience the same thing.(I'm in Switzerland, with a very strong and stable Swisscom network, and anyway, if a 3G works and not a 3GS, it's probably not the network)

IPhone :: 3G 3.0 Losing Song Place
I have noticed since upgrading to the 3.0 software, when I am in the iPod part and playing a song, then disconnect the ear piece (which pauses the song) and do something else, say send a txt or whatever, when I come back to start playing music again the 'now playing' is gone and I have to resuffle, losing where i was.

Has anyone else noticed this and know of a fix? Is there something I am doing wrong i don't know about? It never happend in 2.2, unless I had run the battery right down and it had switched off.

IPhone :: Calendar Losing Appointments
Today I missed an important meeting, because the appointment disappeared from the calendar on my iphone. It has happened a couple of times before. I can't figure it out. The appointment is right there on my calendar. Later, it disappears. I have a macbook and sync automatically through Mobileme. When it disappears on the iphone, the next sync also removes it from ical on my computer. It is a huge problem - I can't trust my calendar and I rely on it hour to hour each day.
