    A friend of mine broke their phone and got it replaced. They didn't have. Computer to do an iTunes backup and they never setup an iCloud backup.

    Does anyone know of a way that she can transfer or "recover" her contacts?

    Does got it replaced mean she got rid of the old phone or she still has the old phone?

    If she still has the old phone she can connect to iTunes and back it up that way and restore it on the new iPhone, if she does not have the old iPhone I doubt she can restore the contacts (assuming she has not synced the same with any cloud services like iCloud, Google, Yahoo, etc.)

    I will have to check...but that's what I was afraid of.
