Transfer contacts from iPhone to computer

Backup iPhone Contacts

As well as copying music and video from your iPod, iPhone or iPad, TouchCopy also allows you to backup Contacts, Calendars, Notes and much more from your device to your PC or Mac!

If you're getting a new iPhone, and wish to transfer your contacts to it, or if you simply wish to update Outlook with your iPhone contacts, TouchCopy can help. The software allows you to save your contacts from your iPod or iOS device to your PC or Mac as vCards and easily import to your address book or email program from there. On the PC you can also copy contacts directly to your Windows Contacts or Microsoft Outlook.

How to Copy your iPhone Contacts

Transferring your iPhone Contacts could not be simpler with TouchCopy. Simply download and install TouchCopy on your PC or Mac and run the free demo version of the software. Then, start TouchCopy, connect your iPhone to your computer and click on the Contacts button on the TouchCopy Toolbar. TouchCopy will display all the contacts stored on your iPhone, which you can then drag and drop to Outlook. Alternatively, TouchCopy can also save your iPhone Contacts to your computer as vCards or export them to Windows Contacts or the Address Book on Mac OS.

Transferring your iPhone contacts to your New iPhone

If you have a new iPhone that you wish to transfer your contacts to, first save your contacts from your old iPhone as vCards using TouchCopy, then you use your email or your address book program, such as Outlook, to import these vCards. You can then use iTunes to sync Contacts you imported to your address book program to your new iPhone.

Note that iCloud needs to be disabled for iTunes contact syncing to work. From your new iPhone, go to "Settings" > "iCloud" and choose "Sign Out" of iCloud at the bottom. Connect your new iPhone to your computer, open iTunes and click on your device icon. Click on the Info tab in iTunes and check "Sync Contacts", choose your address book program and click on the "Sync" button.

Please see the TouchCopy User Guide for more detailed information on how to save iPhone contacts.

TouchCopy is a free trial download which is compatible with all iPod, iPhone and iPad models and does not perform any jailbreaking or modification of your device.
