    I've got a problem. I'm really sorry if someone have already discussed that problem before.
    I upgraded to leopard last night and had to format my hard drive. I lost all my contacts on my mac, but have them on the iPhone. How can I get the iPhone to transfer them to my Mac?
    Hope to get answers as soon as possible.

    I don't have an iPhone, but I'm a Mac user... Check if you can export your contact list from your iPhone by way of Bluetooth...sync...or mobileMe.

    I'm pretty sure the sync function in iTunes works both ways, so when you sync your phone to your authorized account in itunes it will copy your contacts too.

    The contacts should be in the Address Book app on your Mac.

    sync your contacts via itunes

    open itunes
    click on your iphone on the left side
    click info kinda on the top middle
    click the check box "Sync Address Book Contacts"
    click the radio button "All Contacts"
    click Sync on the bottom right

    iTunes will now copy all your contacts from your iPhone to your Address Book on your Mac

    *edit... make sure that nothing is checked in the Advanced options on the bottom for example "Replace information on this phone"

    iCloud requires iOS 5 on iPhone 3GS or later, iPod touch (3rd and 4th generation), iPad, or iPad 2; a Mac computer with OS X Lion; or a PC with Windows Vista or Windows 7 (Outlook 2007 or 2010 or an up-to-date browser is required for accessing email, contacts, and calendars). Some features require a Wi-Fi connection. Some features are not available in all countries. Access to some services is limited to 10 devices.

    You can take a look at SyncMate, it syncs contacts between Mac and iPhone for free (sync-mac.com/ios-sync.html)

    First please make sure you have installed iBooks app in your iphone. If you donít have it yet you can go to the iTunes Store to download one and it will be automatically installed the next time you sync your iPhone to your computer. Open the PDF file in the iBooks app and now you can enjoy your epub ibooks. Beside, you can ask Google how to convert PDF to epub book and he will give you recommendation of useful converter and instructive articles. And you can refer to this article about how to convert pdf to epub on Mac.
