    my computer just crashed and I have lost all my data (the usual problem of file-vault and leopard I am afraid... please be aware that file-vault is incompatible with leopard... it will erase all your data).. I still have my contacts on my iphone and I was wondering whether it is possible to transfer all my contacts from my iphone back to the computer... please help me...

    Yep, ditto what jbothos just stated...

    since I had my iPhone develop a software glitch and received a new iPhone and synced in the parking lot of the Apple Store. While my son dropped his laptop and was unable to retrieve his iPhone data; he went out and bought (actually we bought him) a new MacBook 2.16 and he synced with the new MacBook instantly! Works like a charm. :cool:

    To send iphone contents to computer.

    All you need to do is:

    iTunes>Click the iPhone on the left tabs>Info>Contacts>Sync

    Thats how i did it and it worked!

    Or Download a freeware software named "Sharepod". It will do the job and you can also back up all your IPOD music files for the future in case you face a computer crash or loose.

    Download here

    Is there a direct way to transfer iPhone (gen 1) contacts to PC without the need for iTunes? My computer crashed and I just don't understand why iTunes would want to delete my iPhone music? All I want to do is transfer my contacts to my PC to sort of back them up and be able to transfer them to my new 4S.

    Ideas? Preferably a free way - i.e. open the hidden folder on the iPhone and copy paste to the PC? I was thinking Outlook but it still needs iTunes sync, right?

    I apologize, I should update the thread here. I too have gone full version. And I find it really nice and easy to use.

    Easiest way I think is to turn iCloud on and merge existing contacts on iPhone to iCloud. From there login to iCloud.com from the computer and export.
