Sync iPhone 4S contacts to PC?
Hi I don't seem to find a specific answer to this question. I have all my contacts on my iPhone. I want to transfer my iPhone contacts to my Outlook on my PC. According to threads I found here (though it concerned Mac and not a PC), I should sync my iPhone contacts with Outlook via iTunes.
However I have heard that syncing works only for people looking to bring contacts from their Outlook to the iPhone and not the other way round. My Outlook is currently empty, will an iTunes contact sync delete my contacts - I am scared to just risk trying on my own.
Finally, I don't buy music off the iTunes store and really do not use iTunes for anything else than playing podcasts. Isn't there a direct way to import the contacts to Outlook via Outlook itself?

If you have an iCloud account or have your contacts stored with any other cloud service, you can simply export them and then import them to Outlook. I haven't used Outlook in years and have never synced it with iTunes.

hello, I am trying to add a number of contacts from my Windows Contacts to my iphone. I have dozens of contacts which are already on both on my iphone and my Windows Contacts. I wish I just select all contact entries and transfer to my iphone. Does the contacts program described here identify contact duplicates or will it transfer all of the contacts I select from my Windows Contacts regardless of whether they are already on the iphone or not?

Re: Sync iPhone 4S contacts to PC?
If you want to transfer contacts with iTunes, follow the following steps:
1. From the Home screen, select Settings.
2. Select Mail, Contacts, Calendars and then scroll down and press Import SIM contacts. This will copy any phone numbers stored on the SIM to the memory of the iPhone.
3. Now connect your iPhone to your PC using a USB cable. If iTunes doesn't automatically open, press Start and select the program from the list.
4. Once iTunes has opened, press the iPhone icon that appears on the left-hand side of the iTunes window.
5. From the options displayed, click Info And then tick the box next to Sync Address Book and Contacts.
6. Now press Sync at the bottom of the screen and all your iPhone contacts will be copied to your PC.
