    With the current 5.1 untethered jailbreak looming close (according to pod2G) i was wondering that how you can backup your contacts / save them while your jailbreak you iphone 4 and then easily place them back on to your iphone without having to restore or and thus losing the jailbreak?

    Update, then backup via iTunes 1st, the JB. Restore from your backup during the process via iTunes when prompted.

    Good luck!

    iCloud

    I find the easiest method is to sign up for a free iCloud account and backup your contacts with that.

    The iTunes method is also good, but I've had a few issues with syncing a restored iPhone with my computer, and instead of copying my computer contacts to my iPhone, it decided to copy my blank iPhone contacts to my computer and wipe all of my computer ones.

    As stated, either the iTunes or iCloud backup is available.
