I had my phone (iPhone 5 on 7.0.4) backed up to my computer. I do NOT use iCloud. I've had a problem with the battery so I went to Apple tonight. Apparently the phone was acting like the screen was on all the time when it wasn't, draining the battery. They needed to restore the phone as a new phone - NOT from a backup since it would mirror the glitch causing the battery drain. They asked me if I had the phone backed up and I said yes, but that I just want the contacts to be pulled back on the phone, mainly because I was concerned as I could not recall ever seeing a list of contacts on my computer and could only recall an option to restore the phone from a backup (as in the entire phone, not just the contacts). So the girl set up an iCloud account for me which I didn't really want and associated my phone with that iCloud account instead of my usual apple ID, which is a gmail address. She backed up the contacts to iCloud, then did the restore, and then said my contacts would flood back into my phone after 5-10 minutes from iCloud. They never did. So, since that didn't work and wanting to get my phone back associated with the original gmail Apple ID instead of the new iCloud ID, I came home and just did another restore and set the phone back up with the original gmail Apple ID. I don't see any way to get my contacts; I suppose I could restore again, set it up with the iCloud email, try again to get the contacts to download, and then be stuck with the iCloud Apple ID I don't want? Otherwise I don't see anywhere in iTunes where my contacts are stored; I see the contacts section and it's blank. I should be able to restore JUST the contacts WITHOUT messing with iCloud - they *should* be backed up automatically on my computer every time I plug my phone into iTunes and it backs up, no? So how can I set the phone up as a new phone and restore JUST the contacts without iCloud? Ugh, frustrating.
