    I just recently had to switch from my iphone 4 to an android because i broke it. All of my contact were synced to itunes and i though address book as well, but I went to itunes and address book and none of my contacts are there. I have backed up my iphone numerous times, is there a way to access them from those files or could they be synced somewhere else? Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

    If you still have your iPhone then sync it again through iTunes and go to the tab at the top that has all your information. Make sure that box is checked that says sync contacts. If it is, which it sounds like it isn't, then check it and iTunes should import your iPhone contacts to Address Book.

    I have the phone, but it is broken enough that it will not turn on. Is there a way to access the backup files from itunes or from my macbook?

    I have never done the extractor thing but I'm just curious, what happened to your iPhone so that it won't turn on?
