Duplicates IPhone and Outlook 2007

Yo!
I am continually getting duplicates between my IPhone 4 and Outlook 2007.
I delete the duplicate from Outlook and re-sync - still duplicated on phone after next sync.
I delete the duplicate from the IPhone - still get the duplication in Outlook after the next sync.
I am wondering if the way I make the entries into Outlook is causing the problem.
Here is how I enter data into my Outlook Contact list:
If it is a name of a person: I just enter the full name into the "Full Name" field: ex: John Smith
However, if it is a business or I want to manipulate the name so that it is organized alphabetically, I enter the name just into the "Company Name" so that the "File As" field will display and sort the name alphabetically. Ex:
If it is "John Smith Plumbing and Electrical", I enter this into JUST the "Company" field. I do NOT enter a name into the "Full Name" field.
After syncing using iTunes, going through my contact list, I will see a duplicate of the John Smith Plumbing and Electrical contact. One will my original, and the duplicated one will have John Smith Plumbing and Electrical in the "Full Name" field.
Hopefully I have described my situation clear enough.
Is there a known fix for this?
Thanks in advance

Go to contacts on your phone/ipad, click groups, make sure that the only checked contacts are icloud. That shoud do.

  • Problems with synching calendars between iPhone and Outlook 2007 on Windows

    I recently purchased a copy of windows 7 ultimate 64. It was an English version, but since it is ultimate I downloaded and changed it to Danish - so far so good...
    I have synch'ed between outlook and iPhone on a Vista platform without problems, but now on windows 7 when I sync - the result is, that on my iPhone the meetings, work schedules and birthdays I have in my calendar is shown a day too soon!!
    I have checked that both iPhone and Outlook start the week on Mondays, so that is not an issue - I have updated my iPhone to the newest software with out any luck - so now I try and write here instead - hopefully someone can help me...
    thanks in advance

    yes they were set to the same timezone - which puzzled me a lot...
    I lost a lot of sleep, but I can now say that I have solved the problem...
    What I did was, that I un-installed microsoft office (desperate I know!) - then ran a sync with the iPhone choosing to overwrite the Calendar in the phone - as there was no calendar present - it deleted what was on the phone. Then I re-installed Microsoft office, by doing that, I didn't loose anything because the user files was still present including mail setting etc. - resynced the iPhone - and now it works...
    Just can't figure out what went wrong in the first place...
    thank you for your answer

  • Synching Calendar between iPhone and Outlook 2007

    When I make a calendar entry in Outlook 2007 on my PC, it automatically synchs with my iPhone through iCloud.   But when I make a calendar entry in my iPhone, it does not show up in Outlook anymore.  This just started about a month ago.  Under settings, in iCloud, I do have Calendar "ON."   I tried turning off Calendar in iCloud and then turning it back on - when I did that, the PC calendar that was showing there is now gone, and only the iCloud calendar is showing and it is checked.  
    Any ideas?   Thanks!

  • HT1692 sync between iPhone and Outlook 2007

    first time sync went perfectly well.  Now it doesn't sync anymore.  It seems to be synchronising, but it does not.  How come???

    i use outlook for my work email, but my personal email is in gmail.  besides work email, i do not use outlook at all.
    i get my work email on my iPhone, but i do not sync calendars and contacts as i have to use an imap connection for work, and this does not allow for calendar or contact syncing.
    i have seen a gmail/outlook sync tool, but i am afraid i do not use it so i can not offer any help with it.

  • Contacts on iPhone and Outlook 2007

    Is it possible to sort your contacts by company name in Outlook and by the person's last name on the iPhone?

    Go to contacts on your phone/ipad, click groups, make sure that the only checked contacts are icloud. That shoud do.

    Hoping for some help with a very frustrating issue!
    I have been syncing calendar and contacts on my iPhone 5 and Outlook 2007 using iCloud  2.1.3 (my PC is running Vista). All was well until the events I entered on the phone were showing up in Outlook, but not the other way around. I’ve tried the usual recommended steps: deselecting calendar and contacts in the iCloud control panel and then re-selecting, signing out of the panel and back in, and repairing the Outlook installation in control panel.  I even uninstalled iCloud on the PC and downloaded it again (same version). 
    The furthest I’ve gotten is step 2 (and once, step 3) of 7 while performing “Outlook Setup For iCloud.” At that point I get, “Your setup couldn’t be started because of an unexpected error.”  After the first attempt at all this, all my calendar events disappeared from Outlook, although they are still in iCloud calendar and on my phone.
    Sound familiar?  Any ideas on how to solve this iCloud/Outlook issue?  Thanks much in advance!

  • I have an Ipad2, an Iphone 4 . I want to be able to sync both of these with my Windows desktop and Outlook 2007. I would like to sync to and from the Idevices and Outlook.

    I have an Ipad2, an Iphone 4 . I want to be able to sync both of these with my Windows desktop and Outlook 2007. I would like to sync to and from the Idevices and Outlook. When I attempt to sync in itunes I get a popup message asking if I want to delete, Merge or cancel. Not wanting to delete of cancel the only option left is Merge.
                When selecting Merge all of the entries in outlook are added to the idevice. The next time I merge all of the same entries plus any new ones are added, resulting in older entries being repeated i.e an entry like “John’s Birthday” will appear 5 or 6 times on the same date.
                How do I resolve this issue? How do I get the the sync process to add only new entries?

    This is a great question. First, facetime will not work because it has to establish a Call connection first. iMessage should work, but how to get it going I am not sure. Two great Apps to try are, Viber and Skype. Viber is excellent, it works over WiFi, you can make free calls and free text messages all over the world with other users who have Viber installed. It does not even have to be open on screen to work. Viber does have to recieve one text message with activation code, to activate it, this will be your only hurdle, but maybe Verizon can help you get that one text message. Skype does have to be open on screen however, but this can function like Facetime with WiFi connection. Definitely get Viber free in App Store, and put it on all your iDevices so the old Verizon iPhone can function as a telephone when on WiFi.

  • Syncing iPhone with Outlook 2007 after hard drive crash.

    I recently had a hard drive crash.  We were able to retrieve the .pst files for Outlook 2007 and I sync my iPhone with Outlook for contacts, calendar and such for business.  The iPhone of course, was not affected.  I downloaded iTunes on the new hard drive, and backed up the phone.  (I sync music and apps on my husband's laptop.) 
    Now, in trying to sync, though, I get a lot of nebulous messages that really don't explain what the outcome will be. 
    Box says:
    The information on the iPhone "Susan's iPhone" is synced with another user account.  Do you want to sync this iPhone with the information from this user account instead?
    (Choices:  "Merge Info mergest th einformation on this iPhone with the information from this user account.  OR "Replace Info" replaces the information on this iPhone with the information from this user account.  )
    My best guess would be 'Merge info" but then, will I end up with double everything?  I have many hundreds of contacts and years of calendars.
    It seems with Apple I'm always cleaning up one mess after another.  Today when installing iTunes, it corrupted my Outlook and I had to repair Outlook. So it would be a nightmare to have double of everything on my phone and on my computer. 
    Does anyone have a clue as to what to expect? 

    On a PC with Windows or with Paralels iTunes 8.2 has an option for Outlook which works with Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007 (if it works - see my post on a case where it doesn't ...)

  • Sync with Vista Business and Outlook 2007

    My old systems we running XP and Outlook 03 but I have recently upgraded to Vista Business and Outlook 2007. Since upgrading I have not be able to get either my contacts or calendar to sync. I have tried everything that I have come across in this forum and elsewhere but so far nothing has worked. I have the latest version of both iTunes and iPhone software. At this point it will not sync in either direction. Even though it says it is syncing it only takes about 10 seconds and nothing actually syncs. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    If possible create a new user
    Once in the new user, Launch iTunes and Set it up
    Close out of iTunes
    Launch Outlook set it up without Email support so Outlook 2007 will be open
    Once this is done Add at least 1 contact and 1 Calender Event to Outlook 2007
    Once this is done assuming your iPhone has contact and Cal information on it, Go ahead and go into ITunes and Set the Info Tab to Sync to Outlook for Contacts and Cals, And report what happens.
    If this works. Then there is an issue with the Data in Outlook on other account.

  • Issue on sync for iPhone4S(iOS6.1) with iTune Ver11.3.1.2 to Win7 and Outlook 2007

    Hi Fans of iPhone, Anyone can advise? Thanks a lot.

    Additional Info: While it was synchronizing the iPhone in between, iTunes did ever showed the option dialog such as "Cancel" and "Combined Information (M)" and "Cancel Information (R)". I clicked the button of "Combined Information (R)" then.
    As a resul, it is being only showed the each Profile's Contact's name without the phone number in both of iPhone4S and Outlook2007, affected over 95% contact profiles' in my iPhone and Microsoft Outlook. It affected as I lost most of all contact persons' phone number. Seriously, it affect my life and mental. Please advise for help to fix and  advise urgently. Million Thanks!!!

    Hello kylhk,
    I would start with looking to when you had a back up before the issue with your contacts. If you do, then I would recommend to restore your iPhone and put that back up back on to get your contacts back. Check out the article below for the steps on how to do that.

    When I go to the settings, also there is the same error : “This version of Outlook is not supported by the Outlook Conduit application. Supported outlook versions are Outlook 98, 200, XP(2002) and 2003.”. It looks like the upgrade with palmoutlook2007conduits have no effect in Windows 7.

  • Can't sync Palm Centro and Outlook 2007/Windows 7 - please help!

    Hello,
    I've never posted on a forum, but I'm at my wits end...!  I've been trying to get my Palm Centro to sync Contacts/Calendar/Memos to Outlook 2007 on my new laptop for a week now with no success.  It used to sync just fine to my old computer with Windows XP and Outlook 2003.  Then that computer crashed (my Outlook files were backed up on an external harddrive).  I received my new computer with Windows 7 XP (32-bit) and Outlook 2007.  I've downloaded the Palm Desktop 6.2, Windows 2007 Conduit, and Software Update 1.03 (Windows installer) for Centro for Verizon. 
    When I sync my phone to my new Outlook, it completes all 12 steps, but does not load Contacts/Calendar/Memos to Outlook.  This is a list of the error messages:

    I've ready about 3rd party software in posts (Pocket Mirror), but I don't know if it applies here because the Contact/Calendar/Memo information is in my Centro - not in Outlook.  I need to get it from my Centro to Outlook 2007. 
    Any help is greatly appreciated!  Thank you!

    I have a Pre Plus and am using CompanionLink software.  If the Centro is like the Plus (which I believe it is) it will not sync with Outlook.  Here is a link to Companion Link:

    I have been using this and it works great.  On their site you can choose the phone and the particular program you need to sync with and choose which you way you want to sync.
    Hope this helps
    Sorry hat, the Centro has absolutely nothing in common with a webOS device!  It runs PalmOS.  Nice of you to reply with your suggestion though! 
    @SyncHelpPlease:  OLERR errors are covered in this Palm KB article:

    Something I noticed in your post - you installed Palm 6.2.2 AND the 2007 conduit.  Palm Desktop 6.2.2. has the 2007 conduits built into it already, and the patch is not needed.  Whether this is the cause of your problems, I'm not sure, but I've fielded several posts of the same issue where the user did the same thing you did!
    I'd suggest doing a clean uninstall, and reinstall of Palm Desktop 6.2.2 only. 
    I admit, I do not use Outlook, nor Win7, so I'm giving you my best guess at a way to solve your problem.  Hopefully, this may lead to a solution!
