    I currently have all my contacts just on my I4, not on yahoo or gmail. when I got my iphone Ijust manually entered them in since i came from a BB.

    I have performed a few backups in itunes. So, when I get my 4s and restore from backup, will my contacts follow and load on to new phone? Not sure if contacts are part of the normal backup.. Do I have to do anything special to accomplish this?

    Thanks!!

    Nothing special. Everything you need is within iTunes and your backup.

    Restoring your backup restores you contacts as well, no worries there.

    Very easy with iTunes and the iPhone .... I would still use something like gmail but to each their own.

    Yes all you need to do is use a restore. Or before you get rid of you're iPhone 4, tomorrow make sure you get the iOS 5 update and make an Apple ID so that when you get you're new iPhone everything will just switch over seemlessly.

    Will not iCloud also perform this function as well? If so, you don't have to connect to your computer.

    I'm moving from a blackberry and already sync-ed up my contacts into the addressbook on my computer which should sync up with the iphone through itunes on initiation.

    iCloud has to make a back up of what is on the phone first, from then on it can be done via the cloud.

    I have a problem with my contacts: I have them sync'd with iCloud so i can view them in my contacts app. However, all my text messages and phone calls still are the numbers of my contacts and not the names of the contacts. Any reason why that is? I am running ios5 on the 4s.

    Thanks!
