    Hello all,

    I recently upgraded to Leopard, wiping my drive in the process (intentionally) but unfortunately i forgot to backup my address book....now, I have all my contacts on my iPhone, and have set iTunes to not sync the contacts so they are safe for now, but I really need them to be back in my address book on the mac.

    I even managed to grab the AddressBook.sqlitedb file off the iphone but have been unsuccessful getting that into a format Address Book can import.

    Hopefully someone has the solution, thanks in advance...

    If you have a backup of your contacts on your iphone, I'd just go ahead and sync. I can't remember if it does or not, but if itunes copies the empty list from your computer to phone the first time it syncs, just reload your backup on your phone and sync again. Itunes should sync from your phone and, if I remember correctly, give you a warning about changing more than 5% of your contacts on your computer.

    Good luck.
