    My computer was recently stolen and I had to buy a new one. I am not trying to see if there is a way to take my contacts, songs, pictures that are on my iphone and put them onto my new computer.

    Contacts should sync back to the new computer because iTunes will see the 'new' contacts on the phone and not your computer.

    For photos and music, you'd have to jailbreak your phone to get access to the filesystem.

    Can anyone confirm this is definitely the case on Mac OS too? I've had to reinstall OSX so don't want to delete all my contacts when I connect to what I'd guess the iPhone will see as a 'new' computer. I can write them all down manually as a last resort, but I'd really rather not!

    For photos, iPhoto will see your iPhone as a 'device' and let you import the photos from your iPhone.

    And I've not tried, but it may be possible to use a free app like 'senuti' to copy the music from you iPhone back into iTunes, as you can on regular iPods.

    So there may not be a need to Jailbreak at all.
