    There is no way to back it up because iTunes will not identify it, or rather, it will identify it as an iPhone requiring a restore and will not allow access to it. What you might be able to do is to try something like iPhoneBrowser to download all the files you originally had in it. I'm not sure if this affects the contacts or whatever but it's probably the most you can do. Hope this helps.

    If you have synced your phone in iTunes before this happened most will return when you sync again.
    You'll have to put the phone in DFU mode and restore it.

    Jailbreak it. It will remove the ATT activation screen, and I'm guessing you would have to unlock it as well, you can do both of these things with redsn0w on a 2G or iPod Touch. On an iPhone 3G, you would jailbreak it and then download ultrasn0w from cydia.
