Does "Sync" save you contacts?
My son's 3G took a plunge yesterday morn and won't come on. He's put it in rice for a little over 24 hrs.
His main concern is his contacts, he didn't have the box checked to sync with google or any of the other clients.
Does it still save to the computer in itunes or is he SOL?? I told him just a few weeks ago that he needed to do a google sync just in case something happened, but you know how kids are...
Do you think his contacts are saved or not? Looks like he's gonna get an IP4 today.
Thanks for any help.

I know this is a little off topic, but I think Apple needs to take a page from Google in this aspect. With Android, your Google ID saves your contacts with Google, so you can just use the same Google ID on a new phone, and POOF, there are your contacts.
Apple could easily do it by just tying in the Apple ID.
Just my 2 cents.

Tell your son to get a free Google account. Then, by using googlesync, you can back-up your contacts and calendar. You can even add an extra calendar for birthdays(i have a large family, so i need it). If you have a Mac, it also syncs into ical and address book. Good luck!
