When I'm synchronizing my iPhone 3G S with iTunes, an error message tells me that

"iTunes could not sync to the iPhone 'Katie's iPhone' because the contacts are in use by the phone."

What should I do?

have you tried to do a sync with "Sync contacts with" option unchecked ? –  kraymer Dec 27 '11 at 9:23
