Restoring iPhone 5 as new, but save contacts
Hello, I have been using an iPhone sense the 3g and have never restored my phone as new, always from a backup. I have had my iPhone 5 for some time and it has a lot of useless stuff on it. I would love to restore it as a new phone but do not want to lose my contacts. Is there any way I can save only my contacts, but restore the phone as new? It also would be great if there was a way to sort out duplicate contacts. Thanks in advance for the help!
Is there a way to save them to my sim card? I am on sprint.

You can use GMail contacts as mentioned above to import the VCF, then merge the dups then export back out as a VCF.

There is also a "look for duplicates" option in the Address Book under the Card menu.
Or you can use iCloud or iTunes to sync also.
