Need to get contacts from Itunes, sold Iphone ?
Hey all. I ended up selling my iphone since the 5 will be coming out before to long. A tactic based on prices dropping when the newest unit actually is released. But anyway. I need to get to my contacts from ITunes. I'm assuming since the phone has been backed up a number of times I can somehow. I don't need to do a crazy sync thing to a new phone or anything like that. Just want to be able to see my saved contacts from my backup so I can write them all down.
Thanks in advance

Didn't you sync them with Outlook on a PC or Address Book on a Mac? If not I think you're out of luck. I'm not aware of anyway to extract pieces of data from your backup. Backups are only used to restore to an iPhone. Hopefully one of the tips in the previous reply will work for you.

Thanks Massie. ibackupbot is the program to use. Its a freeshare program that allows you easily to access whatever was on your Iphone backup. It took me 30 seconds at most to read a description of the ibackupbot Massie posted in her first reply to this thread. Download the application to PC and access all my contacts. I'm so happy about this.
Massie you are a life saver.
If anyone wants to access whatever they want from there Iphone backup and they don't have the phone anymore. This is the program to use. Even has quick buttons at the top of the program where you don't even have to look for certain things. Button had a contacts pic and boom there all there,
