How To Setup LDAP And CardDAV Accounts On iPhone 5

When you set up an LDAP account, you can view and search for contacts on your organizations LDAP server. The server appears as a new group in Contacts. Because LDAP contacts arent downloaded to iPhone, you must have an Internet connection to view them.

  • Check with your administrator for account settings and other requirements (such as VPN).
  • When you set up a CardDAV account, your account contacts are synced with iPhone over the air. You may also be able to search for contacts on your organizations CardDAV server.
  • Set up an LDAP or CardDAV account: Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars, then tap Add Account. Tap Other.
  • Ask your service provider or administrator what settings you should use.
