Do contacts too, get backed up via this process?
Using iCloud as a backup, your iCloud contacts are already stored on the server so no need to back them up.
Using iTunes, you would need to select a conatct management application to back them up to such as Apple Address Book or outlook
Hey Dave, Thanks!
Can you please suggest me a ha ndycontact application to download it to my iPhone?
The Contact application would need to be on your PC.
If you're worries about backing up your contacts, I would advise using iCloud.
