    I want to back up/edit my mobile phone contacts (K750i). Sony have stopped supporting it, and the PC Suite which came with it doesn't offer contact backup anyway. The newer PC Suite 6 doesn't support the K750i.

    I have MS Office 2010 with Outlook. I tried a backup/restore sync once. Disaster! My entire Outlook contact list was imposed on my phone, including email addresses, web addresses, and many duplicates :mad:

    Is there a way to have more than one contact list in Outlook (v.14.0.6023.1000) so I can use a separate list just for my phone?


    I don't want a new, whizzy, heavy, enormous, pocket-tearing battery-eating superphone BTW.

    Yes, just create a contacts folder in a pst file.

    I wish.
    If you do this - you can also back up the PST (when Outlook is closed) to another device and it will be a very small file.

    Thanks gents, but I've given up. The various bits of software place so many restrictions on what I can backup/copy and to where I can store it, and life's too short to fight it. It looks like I'll be using my K800i, a bit bigger and a bit heavier than the 750 but acceptably so.
