    Default How to restore the iPhone keeping my Contacs?

    Ok guys, i know that when you restore your iPhone you lose everything on it,
    like music, videos, ringtones, pictures, contacts and all the rest. So what i really want to know is how can i backup all my contacts from iphone. Cause i already deleted my contacts from my PC, and only have it on the iphone.
    Thanks a lot,
    Abras

    If you sync it with iTunes, provided you have not turned off the backup mechanism it will still backup your contacts.

    I can vouch for this as I sync my contacts on my work PC and my music from my home PC. When I restore at home (as I've had to do a few times... ah the joy of 1.1.1 upgrades!) it backs up my contacts fully. Once the iPhone is up and running again, and activated, fire up iTunes and it will ask you whether you want to restore from a backup or create it as a brand new iPhone. Select restore from backup, and 20 seconds later you'll have all your contacts, including their pics!

    ps The only thing I have found it doesn't back up are your photos (taken with the camera) and your passwords for mail accounts, wifi connections etc. Everything else (mail, contacts, maps, bookmarks etc) is all happily restored.

    Yes, it will ask you if you want to set it up as a new iPhone or restore data from the backup.

    I can confirm because I did the exact same thing as what you're going to do, re-virginize -> update to 1.1.1 -> anySIM 1.1 -> restore contacts from backup in iTunes.
