    Default Question: how to make a backup of the contacts saved on the iphone?

    I imported the contacts from my sim to the iphone (with isim from installer), then I modified them adding emails and other info, but I do not have them on outlook, so the sync with outolook in Itunes is not good. I was wondering: how can i make a back up of the contacts I saved on the iphone? Do I have to make a backup of a specific file where they are stored (what's that, in this case), or is there another way?
    Thanks

    Well if you add 1 contact to outlook, then sync your contacts, it will not only bring that one contact over from outlook, it will also send the contacts from your phone and put them into outlook, so that could work...

    Thanks for your reply. The problem is that iTunes does not let me do the sync with selected groups only, and I have tons of contacts on outlook I do not want on the iphone as I do not need them. For some reasons I am not allowed to check the flag "sync with selected groups only"in iTunes...I have iTunes 7.5. Any ideas on another way to do the backup, or how I can sync with just the group I neeed? Thanks

    Set up a new windows user account... call it for example 'iphone' then use that account for syncing your contacts as outlook will be fresh and empty

    That's a good idea. Thanks, I did not think of that

    Or just use another .pst file for your iphone contacts (use export/import feature in Outlook)
