    IPhone 4S Contacts and Group questions

    As the Telecommunications Coordinator for a large Agency, I am the first POC for the IPhones... We have just acquired a new Commissioner and she has over 1,400 contacts that I've just imported from her Droid, to an IPhone 4S... I'm trying to find a way to 1) Dedupe those contacts, 2) Merge the ones that are similar, 3) create Groups on her phone and finally 4) do it without having to load another application...

    Here's what I've experimented with so far: (I put these on my own phone and played with them)
    Multi Edit - I was able to dedup quite a bit, but couldn't create groups AND it didn't translate over to the "Contacts" portion of my phone... It's only showing the new list, inside the Multi Edit application

    YouLu - Was able to create Groups, and oddly enough it appears to have pulled from the changes I made within Multi Edit... But again it's not translating into the "Contacts" on the phone itself...

    And more frustrating than anything else, I can't seem to find how to create a new group under "Contacts"...

    Does anyone have any suggestions for me?
    Thank you!

    Here is how you create group using Youlu. Just follow the screenshots, it's easy

    Thanks Bab2010, but I knew how to create one in YouLu... I was still hoping to find a way to create them on the actual IPhone Contact list... I guess I'm bewildered as to why Droid can do it, but IPhone can't, know? But thanks for the time, Bab!!!

    Use yahoo or google to create the contact group you want, then add your yahoo or google account in mail, contacts, calendars settings. Enable contacts in the your newly added mail account. Go back to your iPhone contact app, tap on top left conner to go to all contacts page, there you will see your new added mail account contact group and your previously existing contact group.

    There is a small free app which I personally recommend called copytrans contacts. It reads iPhone contacts on the PC directly from your iPhone Contacts app and is also able to group iPhone contacts.

    Here is a screenshot of the program. You just need to right click within the "Groups" field and select "New group". Then drag/drop the desired contacts to the appropriate groups. The groups are automatically added directly to your iPhone Contacts app:



    Otherwise, the default iPhone app does not support manual adding/merging/editing of contact groups. However there is a way around. You can use Outlook and create the contact groups there, then sync your iPhone contacts with iTunes. However, I am not sure whether you would need to fill the Outlook groups on your PC with the appropriate contact entries prior to sync with your iPhone contacts as I have heard un-pretty stories of iTunes deleting contact entries during sync.
