    Should be a case of setting up Icloud on the Mac. Go to system preferences / Icloud and activate it with your details.

    I'm on OSX 10.6.8 so iCloud isn't in my system preferences

    Backup your phone to iTunes, download a program called iBackupBot and open it. It will list your backups. Choose the newest one, find your contacts, export them. Tadaa! :)

    Once you do that you can also backup to a Disk.

    Having experience iDisk .Mac and iCloud... I still back up my Address book to a disk.
