    Default location of contacts in iPhone
    Hey everybody! Can someone please give me the location of where contacts are in the iPhone. I've got iphonebrowser 1.5.2 and Im not sure if its: /var/root/library/addressbook

    There are two files that's in this directory AddressBook.sqlitedb and AddressBookImages.sqlitedb

    Is this even the right directory where contacts are stored and if it is which one of the two .sqlitedb files is the right one with all of my contacts

    Ps AddressBookImages.sqlitedb is the bigger file compared to the 46 kb addressbook.sqlitedb so I'm quessing that if anything its AddressBook.sqlitedb that is my contact list

    yes that is for 112 and below
    newer (113 and 114) is the same only mobile... AddressBook.sqlitedb sotes the numbers emails etc, and AddressBookImages.sqlitedb are the images of ur contacts...
