    How to save my Contacts from iPhone to Computer?

    Like they get saved in a text file or something.

    I am formatting my iphone and i want it saved on my comp. I dont care if they can be restored or not, but i should be able to see the list on computer.

    Thanks

    If contacts are ONLY on your phone (not in your computer), wouldn't you loose them if you do the above instructions? ( isn't that what itunes claims?)

    No, you won't loose them. Read the manual.

    I synced the contacts on my old iPhone to icloud and then after I set up my new iPhone I turned on the sync to download them to my new phone - then I turned icloud off.

    You can also save your data using iCloud.

    Use iCloud to sync the Contacts. Then enable it on your (new) device once upgraded. I leave Contacts ON on iCloud since that's the most important info I want if I ever lost my device.

    How do I see my contacts in Itunes after they are synced?
