Can't synch Notes or Contacts from iPhone 3GS after upgrade to iOS5

After I upgraded to iOS5 on my iPhone 3GS, I no longer can synch Notes and Contacts from iPhone to Outlook or iCloud. Calendar synchs OK.

After 2 hours with Apple Support, which was great, we figured out the issue. 1-800-my-iphone. When I upgraded to iOS5 and started using the iCloud, I was unaware that my previous synching settings were still set to Yahoo.com where I had been sycning wirelessly in the past. So the Apple support tech showed me that I had multiple accounts in both Notes and Contacts. I had iPhone, iCloud, yahoo, Outlook accounts and my default settings on the iphone should have all been set to icloud. Syching was occuring, but not in icloud. It took a little manual conversion of some Notes and Contacts into the icloud folders in Outlook, but now everything works and I only display and use the iCloud accounts in Notes and Contacts. Apple realizes that this is an issue for those of us that were previously using Yahoo and equivalents for wireless synching and they provded my support free. Usually they charge $27. All is well.

  • Can you copy contacts from iphone 3gs to a pc?

    I want to copy my contacts from iphone 3gs to pc so i can copy them back to my new iphone 4 is that possible?

    Contacts are designed to be synced with a supported address book application on your computer. With XP, this can be with Outlook 2003, 2007, or with 2010 if 2010 is supported with XP along with syncing calendar events and notes, or with the address book app used by Outlook Express called Windows Contacts for syncing contacts only. Not a good idea to depend on your iPhone or on any cell phone alone for this data which can be lost or stolen.
    If you don't have Outlook available and you don't use Windows Contacts - Windows Contacts is empty, before the first sync for this data, enter one contact in Windows Contacts. This will provide a merge prompt with the first sync for this data, which you want to select. Syncing contacts with Windows Contacts is selected under the Info tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes.

    Welcome to the world of Macs. See this introduction to Macs. It might be that you need to sync your iPhone with you MBP. To do this you would connect your iPhone to your MBP which should start up iTunes so you can sync music, vids, and possibly contacts.

    how can i activate my iphone 3gs after upgrading to ios6? it could not activate....

    If your phone was previously hacked to unlock it, when you updated the hack was removed and it's re-locked to the original carrier.  The phone will now activate and operate only with that original carrier.

  • Why can't i activate my iphone 3gs after upgrading it to ios 6?

    why can't i activate my iphone 3gs after upgrading it to ios 6?
    It says,
    ''There is no sim card installed in the iphone you are attempting to activate''
    Thanks for your help in advance!

    There are several common causes for this problem:
    Your security software (Antivirus, firewall, router settings) is blocking access to gs.apple.com, Apple's activation servers. Try temporarily disabling your security applications on your computer.
    You have a redirect in your hosts file that defines a different IP address for gs.apple.com. you must delete all references to gs.apple.com from your hosts file (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts, or /etc/hosts on a Mac)
    Your phone is jailbroken or otherwise hacked.
