    I have got an iPhone 5S with iOS 7.0.4 which I use daily, but I have also got an old iPhone 3GS which I use for when I'm out drinking, incase I lose it.
    I wanted to transfer my contacts to my 3GS from my 5S. Would that be possible?
    I have tried restoring a backup from iTunes but because the firmware is older on the 3GS, it won't allow me.

    Is there any way I can transfer contacts from 5S to 3GS?

    I don't know for certain that this will work, but I'd try using iCloud.

    What version of iOS is on the 3GS? If it's on iOS 5 or 6, you can use iCloud.
