    I need a program that can open AddressBook.sqlitedb,so i can retrieve my contacts again. Nop i didnt backup anything i just have that previous AddressBook.sqlitedb which has my old contacts in it. and when i try to replace it on the new 3.0 firmware, it doesnt work because they made it into a new format so i need to be able to see my contacts to write them back on my iphone again. THANKS

    same here.. have the Addressbook.sqlitedb file, downloaded Sqlite but don't know how to use it... any help would be appreciated

    !!!!solved it.. I connected the iPhone with my mac through ssh with cyberduck and replaced two files (AddressBook.sqlitedb & AddressBookImages.sqlitedb). Also i changed the permissions of both files. To do this you have to Ctrl + click, go to info, look down for permissions and tick all boxes. Restart iPhone and you're good to go!

    P.S I found those two files by using iPhone Backup Extractor
