So this is basically a continuation of bsohl's thread Syncing Contacts FROM iPhone?.
For those of you that are in a similar situation to this:
1. You're on a PC. 2. Your primary storage space for contacts is your phone. 3. Your email client isn't compatable with ITunes. 4. You want to back up your contacts.
Follow these few steps to make your backup happen:
1. Sign up for a new yahoo email address. 2. In the info tab in ITunes select Sync Contacts with Yahoo Address Book. 3. At the prompt enter in your new yahoo email address and password. 4. Hit 'apply'. At this point you may have to hit sync or it might just do it automatically. I can't remember. Here comes the magic 5. You will see the following prompt: http://a425.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/89/l_dfc21c0b2fd5015780fbaad7fddb3 798.gif 6. Select 'merge'. 7. Wait a few seconds. 8. Check your contacts in your yahoo email account and they should all be there. 9. Sweet! 10. Good luck.
