icloud would be the best option. you wont lose them and they will backup/update/restore automatically.

If you activate iCloud, they will be synced immediately and you won't lose them. You'll be able to retrieve them either by restoring your new phone to the iCloud backup, or by simply logging on to www.icloud.com

Yes, and by restoring your phone to a backup.

Once you port your contacts to iCloud they will not delete if you choose to delete them from your iPhone.
