Copyng GroupWise contacts to a 3G iPhone.

Good morning everyone.

One of our GroupWise and iPhone users has asked me if there is a way to copy his personal GroupWise contacts to his iPhone as he is constantly on the phone and it is being times when he looses connection to the mobility server and he needs to call to his secretary to get the contact information.
Any help will be great appreciated.

Thank you.

If the user is configure to use Mobility then the GW contacts should
all sync over to his iPhone.

Thanks Jmarton for your reply,
I need to "copy" the GroupWise contacts to his iPhone for when the sync is lost.

Thank you.

If syncing is momentarily unavailable for any reason, the contacts
which have synced to the phone don't disappear. Once a contact is on
the phone it remains there until the contact is deleted in either the
GW client or on the device.

jmarton,

I am curious about this: If a user leaves, Will his/her GroupWise contacts permanently stay in the iPhone? Thank you.

Yes, unless you send the kill pill which resets the phone to factory
defaults.

Re: Copyng GroupWise contacts to a 3G iPhone.

If the Exchange account is deleted (assuming this is what you mean by leave) from the iPhone all contacts "synced" to the phone from Groupwise will be removed from the iPhone.

Good point. But if the user simply "leaves" the company, as in quits
and takes his/her phone, all the existing data is still there until the
Exchange account is deleted (or the phone is wiped).

I found a little iPhone app called SyncInABlink that will sync iPhone
contacts to Google from an "Exchange" account". Works very well. So a
user can also back up Mobility contacts to Google to have without
needing to keep the mobility account active or worry about a remote wipe
deleting it all.

What you all are saying that there is no way to permanently copy the GroupWise contacts to the iPhone address book unless a third party app is used?

I was trying to turn off the contacts on the exchange account to see if the GW contacts would stay in the iPhone buy I am getting the warning "Are you sure you want to continue? All Exchange calendars will be removed from your iPhone. However, in the iPhone documentation there is one note that it says that for all new contacts "... you can specify to have the contact addded to your device address book rather than GroupWise." so I am wondering if there is a way a to also add the old contacts to the iPhone.

Thank you.

That only applies to create new contacts on the device, not for
contacts created by some sort of automated sync (e.g. ActiveSync).
