Backup iPhone contacts
If you want to easily backup iPhone contacts to your PC or an external drive, without having to use a cloud service or any other web based solution, you will probably find that good solutions are rare.
That is why I want to present you a new PC software that allows you to backup your iPhone contacts to your PC and to export contacts from your iPhone for all major contact management services like Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo!, Hotmail, other iOS devices, Android, iCloud, Excel, Windows Contacts and Thunderbird.
Export iPhone contacts to PC
To get started you can download the software from the following page:
Once the zip folder has finished downloading (in about 5 seconds), open it and drag the “CopyTrans Contacts.exe” file to your desktop. Start the program with a double click. Now you can connect your iPhone to your PC and within a few seconds your iPhone contacts will show up in the programs interface.
How to backup iPhone contacts?
If you want to backup specific iPhone contacts or groups, select them while holding down the “Ctrl” key. If you want to backup all contacts select them with “Ctrl+A”. Now click on the “Export Selected” button in the upper left corner of the program.
Next, choose the destination folder where you want to save your iPhone contacts backup file.
The last thing to do is to choose the device or service that you will use for a later restore of your iPhone contacts. You have the choice between email services like Outlook, Gmail, iCloud, Excel, Android, Windows Contacts and many more. If you want to back up your iPhone contacts for a later import to another iPad, iPod Touch or new iPhone just choose “Transfer your contacts to” > “iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch”.
In a matter of a second all your iPhone contacts have been backed up and you will find, depending on the service that you chose, all the vcards or a *.csv file in your backup folder. The best thing about CopyTrans Contacts is, that your iPhone address book still only belongs to you and you don’t need to worry about your friends or relatives getting spammed by some strange iPhone apps.
