    If you are jailbroken and comfortable with SSHing into your phone here are a couple threads on it. One speaks about pwnage but is the same concept for what ever jailbreak method used. These are the methods I use.
    If not just sync your phone in iTunes, (not knowing if you are Mac or PC) use Google Address book, Outlook Express, Windows Address Book for you contacts. Not sure about Mac really.

    root/alpine are the user names/passwords if that's what you meant.
    Here is a link that should help also.
