    When you say click on the Finder icon next to the Applications icon, not sure where to find these icons from the previous step ( within iTunes with iPhone device selected).

    Cannot find the “Contact Group” button. is that on the Itunes program or the Iphone? On the Iphone there is a group button under contacts but it does not lead you to anything that will help.
