    Hi there,

    I have an issue with my Iphone since it got destroyed literally, the good thing is that I have the backup files stored on my PC, I bought a new phone but not an Apple, I know that the contacts are saved on the backup files and im trying to send them to my Ipod touch but I cant manage to do that.. Is there anyway at all that I can get these contacts from the backup files ?

    Your help is much appreciated..

    Contacts are synced. What did you sync them to?

    Yes, what program did you choose in iTunes to sync your contacts (Outlook or Windows Address Book for Windows or Address Book for a Mac)? That's where your contacts are.

    i don't think your going to restore your contacts from you iphone to another device, but i could be wrong. Maybe some one would hook you up and let you use their phone to do a restore and copy them over to outlook or whatever.

    I kept my contacts in iTunes and i can not read them in the computer. It is just stored the data in the iTunes and you may recover the data if you lost it.

    iTunes > Preferences > Devices shows the contacts of backup you have available. I used to have multiple available to me.
    What's more, FonePaw iPhone data recovery software will help you out. It allows you to recover deleted contacts directly from iPhone.
