Hi, I have iPhone of the first generation and have recently bought a new 4S. How can I back up my old iPhone contacts to my PC and then transfer them to my new iPhone?
I obviously cannot use the iCloud with the old iPhone. I also do not want to sync the iPhone with iTunes in order to transfer the contacts to the PC since I am on a new laptop and the music on the iPhone will get deleted during sync with my new empty iTunes library. I am getting a similar message each time I want to transfer the contacts over to my computer via iTunes sync:
Thanks for your help.
I would advise you to use some third party app in order to transfer the iPhone contacts to your PC. Have a look at this free application in order to transfer iPhone contacts to your PC without the need for iTunes.
Use the same tool to import the contact entries from your PC to your new iPhone.
Alternatively, you might want to start iTunes in Safe mode by clicking on CTRL+SHIFT keys while starting iTunes with your iPhone connected. Next, enter in device settings and tick "Manually manage music and videos"
