    I've tried searching and haven't found a good answer to my problem, even though I know it's been asked 100 times before.

    I just tried to sync my contacts from my 3G iPhone to my computer so that I can sync them onto my 3GS when it comes in. After I synced it, all of my contacts were gone from my phone and weren't on my computer.. I have no idea how this happened, but I'm now restoring from a backup made in March because the most recent auto-backup is so conveniently corrupt and won't restore to my phone.

    So how do I sync my contacts from my iPhone 3G to my address book? In my address book right now is all of my iChat contacts, because I renamed all of my iChat buddies screen names to their real life names, which creates and address book contact for each screen name.

    Thanks in advance!

    Try the mobileme free trial and see if it lets you sync your contacts back to the computer.
