Q: On my iPhone 4 my contacts are continually updating when connected to WiFi or 3g network. Eventually I get all my contacts back but how do I avoid this continual update of contact?

    what service are you syncing your contacts to, and what kind of problems are you experiencing exactly?

    I’m on O2 and syncing with Outlook 2007. Problem is when I open my contacts they constantly change from max of 214 to 76 to 1 then 56 etc. This continues until it settles at 76 sometimes at all of 214. even in my recent phone calls it loses whom I called

    Try just syncing via itunes:

    1. Open iTunes and connect your iPhone to the computer.

    2. Select your iPhone on the left pane.

    3. Click the Info tab toward the top of the screen.

    4. Under the Contacts section, turn on Sync contacts from to Outlook.

    5. Hit Apply.

    tried that and still being updated everytime I go on WiFi. Seems I vary between 45 to 223 contacts

    Picked as best answer

    okay, on the iPhone
    Go to
    “Settings” > “Mail, Contacts, Calendars”

    Under Accounts, you should see your outlook e-mail address, tap on that.

    Now you should see the Mail, Contacts and Calendars Icons along with an on/off switch next to each of them. I’m guessing your Contacts one is switched ‘On’. Switch this to ‘off’ and you will no longer sync over the ‘net.
