I run Windows 7 (no Outlook available) and don't seem to find any native Address Book application on my computer (it is a work-provided laptop). We use Lotus Notes as our mail application. Because my phone is also used for work, I can't use any iCloud services (security restrictions)

I would like to be able to easily see and edit/manage my contacts on my computer and sync them to/from my iPhone (two-way sync), as I mostly am looking up #s and addresses while at my desk, and don't want to have to manually maintain it all twice, or log onto my phone every time I need an address, and then have to manually type it on my computer. Any suggested applications that will do this? I've looked a bit in the app store, but don't find any.

Also - my apple ID is currently linked to the Sweden App Store (I live in Sweden); if there is an app available in another country, can I create an ID for that country and have apps for both IDs on my device?

Are you able to add any accounts at all to your phone? Is the restriction just on iCloud? –  Arthur Dent Jan 30 '13 at 17:25

You can edit Address book directly via browser at http://www.icloud.com if you have iCloud sync enabled.

One can have multiple accounts, but only one is active. An app loaded via account 2 can be used when account 1 is signed in. But for updates, you will need to login with account that downloaded (paid) the app (in this example number 2), you don't see updates for apps from non-logged-in account.

For synchronization of your Lotus contacts and mail with your iPhone, you can try My Notes app: https://itunes.apple.com/app/my-notes-mobile-client-for/id726998714?mt=8
