    What happens when you try to restore the contacts?

    Did you try using Outlook or a Yahoo/Gmail account? It should transfer your contacts properly.

    I just went through this (upgraded last week) and had no issues whatsoever. Fresh backup, new phone, restore. I lost the settings from a few apps (games, who cares for the most part), and had to transfer my tunes again, but the contacts came through perfectly. 4.3.3 3GS to a (then) 4.3.2 i4.

    If ya still have the old phone, try backing up again, or syncing the contacts to outlook, etc. and that should work.

    As noted above, there's no compatibility issues with the data. *shrug*

    Itunes actually prompted me on whether I wanted to "set up as new phone" or "restore form backup". I restored from the backup of my 3G (not 3GS). It seemed to work fine.

    I have all my MMS/contacts/photos, and game settings. I'm pumped!
