    Hey guys, I'm new to AT&T and the iPhone to I have a question. Are my contacts saved to my SIM Card?

    So, if I was to reset my iPhone to it's original factory settings, would all my contacts be deleted?

    And if it isn't, is there a way I can export the contacts from my iPhone to import it back into my iPhone?

    No. They are stored on the iPhone's internal flash memory.


    iTunes automatically creates a backup of your iPhone (when you sync).

    In the event that you have to erase everything on your device/get a new phone then iTunes should be able to restore virtually all of your settings (including Contacts) from that backup.

    You can do this as well. You can either choose to synchronize your contacts with a service like Google or Yahoo, or you can synchronise them using iTunes to your computer.
