Address Book For Mac Os

In this quick tutorial I’ll show you how you can actually use an inbuilt feature including in Mac OS X Lion to print a physically copy of all the data stored in your address book which will help you out endlessly if you ever happen to somehow delete all of your contacts and their details. To add a contact to Contacts/Address Book, do the following: Open Contacts. Contacts is located in the Dock or in the Applications folder on the hard drive. If you are using Mac OS X 10.7 and above, open Address Book. Click File New Card. Enter the contact information in the fields on the right side of the window.

Outlook For Mac Address Book

OK, so I'm in quite a dilemma..
I recently got a Motorola Droid, and have synced my contacts from Address Book with Google, in order for the Droid to get them, which it did. I have also got these contacts on my iPhone 3G S. Now, I deleted some contacts off my Droid, recovered some but some are missing.. They have been removed from my Address Book too! I have read about a file that you recover called Addressbook.aba but I cannot find this. My lost contacts are on my iPhone, but when I sync it does not bring them up in Address Book changes.
Any help would really be appreciated.
Yours sincerely
