IPhone :: Contact Groups Sync On ITunes.

I have read several different posts about creating contact groups to tranfer between iTunes8 and my iPhone 3G v2.1.

I have tried all of them and no matter what I do, whether it was Outlook 2007 or the Windows Contacts, I never get the option to select groups.

When I open iTunes, I go to the Info tab. Sync Contacts with Outlook is selected, and the radio button for All Contacts is selected, but the other radio button for Selected groups: is grayed out as well as the box below and I cannot select it.

IPhone :: 3G New Contact Groups Not Appearing In ITunes
I just got my iPhone 3G and attempted to set up syncing with iTunes (v7.7).I added a new group in Address Book, put some contacts in it, and then went to iTunes. I wanted to sync only certain groups from Address Book, so I turned that option on, but the new group I added does not appear in the list. I quit and restarted both Address Book and iTunes. I rebooted the iMac. I reinstalled iTunes. Nothing has worked.

Nokia :: 6230i PC Suite Sync Contact Groups?
Got the 6230i phone, and I use the Nokia PC suite to sync it with the PC. Now recently when my phone broke down and then replaced by a similar one, I've notice that my contact groups weren't backed up, and I had to enter them again manually. So checked PC suite, and saw it wasn't aware of contact groups at all, although according to its help, contact groups were supposed to be supported. Can anyone help with this?

IPhone :: Sync Through ITunes / Contact Duplication
I have seen many topics on duplicating contacts but none address my issue.I have been quite confused by my case of contact duplication.I do not sync through iTunes but only on MobileMe.There are not duplicates in either the address book on my mac or on MobileMe.Some of the duplicates on my phone have no information under the name, just the name.Other duplicates have mixed up contact information from various other contacts.For example, the phone number and email address for "Joe" is placed under a duplicate of "Sue".

Very odd.One other thing I do is sync my contact pictures with my facebook contacts via the facebook app. I have no idea if that has anything to do with it or not.

IPhone :: Can Set Up Contact Groups
I have the iPhone 4S running iOS 5.1. Is there any way for me to organize my contacts into groups so that I can send a text message to a large group of people without having to individually pick out their contact? On my old phone I could simply assign each contact to a group name. I'm sure there is a function like this on the iPhone.

IPhone :: Contact Types Or Groups
Has anyone heard if/when the ability for grouping contacts or seperating them by type will become available for the iPhone? This was a great feature on my Treo and it's the only ability I feel the phone is missing from it's core system.

IPhone :: Anyway To Add Groups To Contact List
Is there anyway to add groups to my contact list and place certain contacts in certain groups within the iPhone? Or do I have to do it through Outlook? I have searched the Internet and this forum for an answer and it appears I probably can't.I just wanted to confirm my suspicions and ensure that the update didn't add this new functionality.

IPhone :: Add Numbers To Contact Groups?
Ive created a list of sub-groups for my fairly extensive contact list, but I can't figure out how to add contacts to these subgroups without having to re-enter the contact info as a "new contact". Is it possible to select from my "All Contacts" list those numbers I want included in a particular subgroup?

IPhone :: How To Get ITunes / Phone To Sync Outlook Contact Categories
I use Outlook for both work and personal contacts and have applied categories to my contacts in Outlook. Either "Business" or "Personal". I was hoping that these would show up as "Selected Groups" in iTunes so that I could sync just my personal contacts, but they don't. I only have the option of syncing "All Contacts" which lumps them all together. Any advice or suggestions?

IPhone :: Sending Messages To Multiple People / Creating Contact Groups
Just got a new iphone 3G (8GB)Can anyone tell me if there is an easier way to send messages to lots of people at once rather than having to add people one at a time by pressing that + sign and then clicking their name? Can you set up contact groups? I run two different sports teams and want to be able to easily send whole squads messages but cant figure out how to do this.

LG :: Env3 Can Not Have Any Contact Groups Set
I have read and have been forwarned that even the Beta release doesn't fix the phonebook issues for the env3 on verizon phones. I found that if you put FOUR ZEROS in front of the number it goes into the phone perfect. Also you can not have any contact groups set.

Nokia :: Managing Contact Groups In E71 And N97 Mini
It seems that the E71 does not support groups like older models used to: apparently groups are listed alongside contacts, and it is no longer possible to see and search groups directly. I'd like to see my groups straight away (e.g. clients, business partners, friends, etc), open and search them, rather than finding them among the contacts. Actually, this setup misses the whole point of classifying contacts into groups! What on Earth was Nokia thinking? Is there any way around this? A firmware update or a third-party app? Also, how are contact groups managed in the N97 mini? Is it the same, or does that mobile finally allow you to see and search groups directly?

Nokia Lumia :: 900 Contact Groups Members Limitation?
Anyway to surpass the 20 members per group limitation...I have to say this is really annoying why is it old androids phone let you have close to unlimited members per group according to your SD card storage, but not for Lumia 900

so I am thinking Nokia should mark this as a play phone not for business usage? I am quite frustrated that I got a new phone but force to use back my 5800 xpress music because most of my contacts transfer over is kinda screw up, and yes I have went to a Nokia care center and all they can reply "is a new software is like that".

Nokia Lumia :: Max Number Of Persons In Contact Groups?
The max number of persons allowed in a contact group is (as far as I know) restricted to 20 persons. This seems very low and I wonder why this restriction is applied. A limitation of 20 persons in a group is not practical.

Xperia X10 :: Android 2.1 - How To Erase Contact Groups Completely
I just recently upgraded to android 2.1 via PC_companion. And so far everything went through just fine. Using "contacts groups"I created few groups. For some reason I decided to remove the groups and my first option was delete it from contacts_group which was fairly easy. However I notice though the groups was deleted, if I go to phonebook I still see the groups. How to completely remove them?

BB Curve 83xx :: 8330 Send Messages To Contact Groups
I see that the BB 8330 has the ability to separate contacts into groups. I've already added some contacts to a group I made. The problem is, I don't see how to actually send a message to a group, and the instruction manual that came with the thing is useless beyond basic setup.

Xperia X10 :: Remove Groups From Contact View - Phone Contacts?
I've created Contact Groups that are placed under Phone Contacts (Not Gmail Contacts!).Now I try to delete them and they do disappear from my apps like Contacts GroupU.But if you check the View Contacts - Display Contacts - Phone Contacts from the Phonebook (top left icon in Contactlist) all groups are still there.Some that were created twice are even listed double.I would like to know how I can remove those groups from the list.If I keep a group from the Gmail lst pressed, then I get a popup offering me to delete the sync group.I hope you understand my problem. If not I will take a picture and upload it.

Nokia Nseries :: Contact Names Not Displayed In Message Groups
I have a 701. When looking at grouped sms messages I no longer see them described by users name (when the contact is in my contact list). Instead, every message is identified by the phone number. So whereas before I could easily id them now its more difficult. Anyone know how I can get the original setting back? Messaging is set to display in groups.

IPhone :: Contact Groups Labeled "(null)"
In the contacts area of my IPhone there is a button that will take you to "Groups." In "Groups" and under the subhead "All ICloud" there is a long sequence of entries that are labled "(null)" and a couple that are labled "Group Name." All of these entries contain no contacts. How do I get rid of them?
