getting contacts on my comp
Ok...I made the mistake of letting itunes sync and do a back-up so know my latest back up is of a JB 3gs. When the mms is released on the 25th I am going to do the upgrade. Is there a way to get all my contacts on my laptop (vista) so when i restore to factory i dont have to re-enter every single contact.
I tried the:
itunes-my iphone-info-contacts but it only wants to do 04 of my contacts...

I'm JB right now. When I plugged my phone in it synced up and said "performing back-up"
When I do the firmware to 3.1 or whatever it is for the MMS thing on the 25th.
And my contacts from my phonebook. I want all the contacts from my 3gs to my laptop so when i re-JB i dont gotta re-enter all of them

In Windows ITunes, you have the options of syncing contacts in a few different ways, depending on what software you have installed on your Windows computer.
You should have at least the 'Windows Address Book'. This can be found (on a Win XP system) under Start->Programs->Accesories).
If you have Outlook installed, you will also have the Outlook Contacts option. If you have Yahoo, or Google GMail installed, you will have those too.
I use the Windows Address Book since I wanted to keep a separate list of contacts in my Outlook Contacts folder(s). Yes, you can always create a separate Contacts folder in Outlook and use that for syncing.
FYI even though this is my first post, I've been using my new iPhone 3GS 32GB for several weeks now, and have jailbroken and unlocked it (after doing some extensive reading), and I'm not exactly a neophyte to the tech world.
