    You can sync to either Google or iCloud then export the contacts to a VCF file from Google or OS X Address Book.

    If you click on your phone in iTunes, and then click on the Info tab, it should give you the ability to sync your iPhone's contacts to some app on your Windows PC.

    Personally, I sync my stuff to iCloud, so I can access it from pretty much any computer (via www.icloud.com)

    i am not 100% sure since I use the iCloud, but if you really want to stick away from iTunes (or for that matter the iCloud) for explicable reasons (jailbreak), you can indeed use Outlook or something like this iPhone contacts backup program for PC.
