    Install erica's utilities. This includes an app called "plutil". This will convert your binary plists to xml format. Then just copy them off your phone and into any windows text editor. Notepad may work as long as you have carriage returns/linefeeds. I'd use something like notepad2 or notepad++ though. Wordpad would even work.

    Alternatively, there are web-based binary to xml plist converters. Just google them if you want to use that route.

    PS: ericas utils will be installed to /var/root/bin
