  2. Transfer Contacts from Windows Contacts to iPhone:

    5. Hit Sync.

NOTES: In Step 2.1 and 2.2 - when iTunes is opened, it might give the error saying “abnormal termination of OutlookSyncClient.exe”. Click “OK” and Disregard it.

When Step 2.3 is followed, it will say: “switching Contacts to Windows Contacts.” After this switching is done, syncing the contacts will be work fine each time.
