How To Sync the iPhone with only certain outlook contacts?

758 views
I’m using  Outlook 2010. I have “contacts” (that is where all my main numbers are located). I also have another folder that is named “business”. I only want to sync the “contact” file. BUT I can not exclude the “business”.     Any ideas?

To sync selected contacts from Outlook to iPhone, follows these steps:-

- In Outlook, go to File  >  New  > Outlook Data File and call it “My personal folders
- Right-click “My personal folders” and select New, name the new folder “Unwanted Contacts
- Right-click “Unwanted Contacts” and select Properties  >  Outlook Address Book. Activate the “Show as an E mail address book” option
- Move the contacts you don’t want on your iPhone to the “Unwanted Contacts” folder and delete them from the “Contacts” folder in your Exchange “Mailbox

- On your iPhone, go to Settings  > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and select your Exchange account
- Turn off Exchange ActiveSync-Contacts
- Press “Stop Syncing”, which will delete all Exchange contacts from your iPhone
- Go to Contacts to make sure that all contacts have indeed been removed
- Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and select your Exchange account
- Turn on Exchange ActiveSync-Contacts, which will Resync your new Exchange contacts list to your iPhone (which is smaller)
- You now have only selected contacts on your iPhone, but still have all contacts in Outlook for email
