The Apple iPhone includes an Address Book app for storing different types of contact information on your device. You can use Address Book data when placing phone calls, sending e-mail or looking for navigation instructions. If you already store contact information on your personal computer, you can copy it into the iPhone's Address Book app. Mac users can copy data from the desktop Address Book program, and Windows users can copy data from Microsoft Outlook.
