I'm getting some problems to modify moderncv to get the header bold. I would like to get bold address, phone number and email. Can you please tell me how can I do?

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that community members can play around with. It will make it easier for them to help you. – Werner Apr 11 '12 at 18:35
Unsolicited advice: Don't turn boring things like address and phone number into eye catchers by making them bold: it distracts from the things that are actually interesting (currrent and previous job titles, education, achievements). Those are the things that should stand out and capture the recruiters attention. – Jake Apr 11 '12 at 22:39

If you open the moderncv theme files you will see how fonts are defined. For example, in classic theme (in moderncvclassicstyle.sty), you can find the following:

% fonts

Hence you can add the customized versions by providing similar commands in your preamble.
