    Default How to back up contacts on 3GS

    I bought a 3GS and the person I bought it from wants me to get all the contacts and photos off the phone and send it to them before I wipe the phone clean. Is there a way of doing this so that I can save the information in a folder that I can email to them OR does it have to be saved in itunes and then transfered to their new phone through itunes?

    Unfortunately, there's no real easy way to do this. They will need to plug the phone into their computer, sync contacts with an address book application on their machine, then manually copy any photos off that they want to keep. You can assist with the photos, but the contacts would just be a nightmare. You can tell it to sync with your address book, that would duplicate the contacts on your computer, which you could then export -- but importing on the recipient side could be a pain, etc. The only way to guarantee they get what they want is to just let them sync the device one last time and do a backup. Then they'll have everything they could possibly need.
