Hello. Recently I have trouble with my new iMac and iPhone. I can successfully synced the music files from my iPhone to Mac. The question is that my contacts that are still on the iPhone - How do I get these into my Address Book on the iMac? Do you have any ideas??
Help pls!!

Hello :welcome: to Bleepingcomputer!

Well the easiest and quickest way to do that would be to set up an icloud account and sync it that way to do that see here: http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/

If I have replied to a topic and you reply and I haven't gotten back to you within 48 hours (2 days) then send me a P.M.

have you tried importing the contacts form the phone to google contacts then syncing then exporting them from there to a file on the computer then importing that into the address book
or you can also go through the info page in itunes for your phone and sync contacts from the phone to the computer that way by checking the box that says sync contact to then select address book
There is a step by step instruction on How to transfer iPhone contacts to my iMac. Hope it can do you a favor.

See some workaround here. This will help to sync contacts between computer, iPhone. The best thing I like here is the solution to back up contacts. No need to buy any app, you can backup with your computer. See here.
