Moving contacts from iphone ...

I've just got a new phone and want to transfer my contacts from my iphone to the new phone but can't work out how to move my contacts to the SIM card to transfer them.
I tried synching my contacts to Yahoo via itunes but it only synched the contacts from the SIM not the phone.
I don't have outlook on my laptop.
Help!

The iPhone does not support storing contacts on the SIM card which is very limited to a name and a couple of phone numbers and maybe an email address for each contact.
The iPhone supports syncing contacts with Outlook 2003, 2007, or 2010 along with syncing calendar events and notes, or with the address book app used by Outlook Express with XP and by Windoze Mail with Vista and Windoze 7 called Windoze Contacts.
Before syncing contacts with Windoze Contacts if Windoze Contacts is empty and not being used, enter one contact in Windoze Contacts before the first sync for this data. This will provide a merge prompt with the first sync for this data with Windoze Contacts which you want to accept.

    My iPhone is stolen. How can I get my address book back from the iCloud? I should have synchronized my iPad address book. However, I loss some recent contacts from iPhone.

    I use my iPad to get the address book backed up by iCloud from my iPhone. However, I cannot see the recent new contacts from my iPad. Is there anyway to check the iCloud server to see if my address book backup from my iPhone is still there?

  • Can't synch Notes or Contacts from iPhone 3GS after upgrade to iOS5

    After I upgraded to iOS5 on my iPhone 3GS, I no longer can synch Notes and Contacts from iPhone to Outlook or iCloud. Calendar synchs OK.

    After 2 hours with Apple Support, which was great, we figured out the issue. 1-800-my-iphone. When I upgraded to iOS5 and started using the iCloud, I was unaware that my previous synching settings were still set to Yahoo.com where I had been sycning wirelessly in the past. So the Apple support tech showed me that I had multiple accounts in both Notes and Contacts. I had iPhone, iCloud, yahoo, Outlook accounts and my default settings on the iphone should have all been set to icloud. Syching was occuring, but not in icloud. It took a little manual conversion of some Notes and Contacts into the icloud folders in Outlook, but now everything works and I only display and use the iCloud accounts in Notes and Contacts. Apple realizes that this is an issue for those of us that were previously using Yahoo and equivalents for wireless synching and they provded my support free. Usually they charge $27. All is well.

  • How do I TRANSFER CONTACTS (back up contacts) from iPhone 4s to Windows 7

    How do I TRANSFER CONTACTS (back up contacts) from iPhone 4s to Windows 7

    THANK YOU. Sorry for late response. Had to pick someone up. 
    randers4    - I decided to go with the My Contacts Backup app which produced success (I'll know for sure if I need to use the file)
    JoFlo57  - I understand that I could use iCloud but I'm a little on the paranoid side about everybody's data in one location... what with hackers getting into Sony's Playstation accounts and other infamous huge hacking security failures I frankly don't feel safe storing anything on iCloud.

    Do you mean they are on the web at iCloud.com or on your PC in an iCloud client (such as Outlook)

    How do you Sync Contacts from iPhone to MacBook?
    Hi,  Does anyone know how to do this without the need for me to upgrade to Lion on my MAcBook Pro and use the iCloud?
    I put all my contacts into my iPhone and I'd like them now on my MAcBook Pro.
    Thanks,

    Click on your iDevice on the sidebar of iTunes and then go to the info tab at the top. check the box shown here:
    This will put the contacts from an iDevice to the computer. You can then check the same box on the (let's say iPad) that doens't have any contacts and they will go from your comp to your iPad.

  • Can you copy contacts from iphone 3gs to a pc?

    I want to copy my contacts from iphone 3gs to pc so i can copy them back to my new iphone 4 is that possible?

    Contacts are designed to be synced with a supported address book application on your computer. With XP, this can be with Outlook 2003, 2007, or with 2010 if 2010 is supported with XP along with syncing calendar events and notes, or with the address book app used by Outlook Express called Windows Contacts for syncing contacts only. Not a good idea to depend on your iPhone or on any cell phone alone for this data which can be lost or stolen.
    If you don't have Outlook available and you don't use Windows Contacts - Windows Contacts is empty, before the first sync for this data, enter one contact in Windows Contacts. This will provide a merge prompt with the first sync for this data, which you want to select. Syncing contacts with Windows Contacts is selected under the Info tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes.
