Saving contacts and other info from iPhone

Jodi_SoCalJuly 15, 2012

When I go into the office tomorrow, the paperwork for me to go out on a four week (or possibly longer) medical will be set in motion.

A few years ago my employer issued me a laptop and iPhone so that I can be on call 24/7. I don't know for a fact but I suspect they may ask for the iPhone and laptop back while I'm out. As such, I would like to copy as much of my personal info off the iPhone as possible before tomorrow morning.

Any suggestions?

Hi jodi in so calif,

I had to Google this, looks half decent, others may have thoughts too.

Synchronize the iPhone with Apple iTunes software on a computer to copy contacts information.

I followed the instructions but it calls for Outlook and I don't have it installed on my PC laptop.

I found instructions without having to use Outlook but I don't trust iTunes to download without messing with the current contents of my phone.

I use the iTunes extensively at the office (5,000 songs, hundreds of photos and some videos) but have never used it at home on my PC. I'm afraid if I use Sync, it will override my phone with the contents of my home iTunes setup which contains nothing.

Hey iPhone users, we have created a new cloud based, cross platform, and cross carrier contact storage app that works with IPhone, Android, and Blackberry. The main goal of our App is to make sure no phone user ever loses their contacts again. We would like you to participate in a marketing video by simply sending us a video of yourself explaining what you love about the iPhone and why you believe it�s better than all other phones.
