    Need some help on this.

    I was using a PC to sync my iphone. I just bought a Mac a couple of days ago and I want to change the sync to my Mac.

    So a few things need to be synced.

    1. Songs - extracted them using something found on senuti. So no problems with songs.

    2. Videos - no worries again as I have back up.

    3. Apps - I can download them again. From what I know, the paid apps will still be downloadable and I do not need to pay for it again as I have authorized my Mac to my itunes account.

    4. Contacts - this is the problem part. How do I get my contacts to sync with my Mac?

    I know if I do a clean sync, everything will get wiped out including contacts. How do I do a backup of contacts without losing them and also without having to retype each one individually after syncing?

    Can I do a restore on itunes and hope itunes backs up my iphone? Also, how do I back up contacts on itunes? And no, I do not have mobile me.

    Please help guys. Thanks in advance.
