If you’re like me at all, you may not have your address book maliciously filled out with all the right information. In fact, when I opened Address Book last night, I only had one name in it besides the defaults. When the iPhone launches at the end of this month, however, I you’ll want to have your address book up to date, since that is what the iPhone will be syncing with to get all of your contacts for your phone.
Now, it might take your contacts off your sim card of your existing phone as well, I’m not sure about that, but I do know that if you take the time to fill out your address book now, you’ll have a much nicer presentation on your iPhone when you get it.
It’s very easy to add new contacts, you simply hit the “+” sign under the name column and enter their information. Adding a picture to each person will be important if you want to get a snapshot of just who is calling you. The image needs to be around 255×255 and be pretty much whatever you want. I went through my iPhoto library and found pictures of family and friends to place in their, knowing full well that i’ll probably take new pictures with the iPhone itself of most of them.
More than anything else, this was kind of a fun way to start getting ready for the iPhone. It didn’t take terribly long, and now I have all this information at the tips of my fingers…or…I will, anyway…
