Why don't you use Windows Contacts - I see your running Windows.
Every time you restore it automatically syncs your contacts so no more typing them in!

Using Windows contacts won't help him. And it's a crappy solution anyway. Use Yahoo or Gmail to back up your contacts in futureTo live, you have to lie

Uhh.. not a kid much older than you I'm sure. And I sync with exchange server anyway.
Plus kid, you can't sync Notes and Tasks with Gmail.

YOU GUYS! answer the man's question!
I don't have a solution for you bud, other than downgrade to 2.x, put the contacts back, backup with itunes and then restore back to 3.0

So you sync with Exchange Server, huh? I hope you're used the sniggers from your superiors who use BB or WinMo
