Thanks for taking the time to respond. I had tried you suggestion a number of times without success. But I finally solved the problem in a rounabout way. I downloaded the xfinity address book to a vcard file. But IOS wouldnt recognize it. I got a message telling me that if violated one of the limiting criteria. But it did not. So I merged the contacts with google contacts and them exported the info to a vcard file. I was then able to imprt the file info into ios contacts in the icloud. From there it synced properly to iphone contacts. I guess I will have to do it periodically if I add info the xfinity address book that I need to have available in the iphone contacts. The cause of all this is that the iphone phone gets its numbers and info from the ios contacts app not from the xfinity address book. And does not seem to be any easy way to move info from the xfinity to the iphone contacts app. However, you can import info from the contacts to the xfinity address book. Confusing...!??
