iPhone contacts have always been the most important data for mobile users. To prevent them from losing, I've kept the habit of making backup them to my iTunes every week. But one thing totally changed my mind. That is, My iPhone 5s was stolen the other day so I had to go for another phone. It was that time I realized that iTunes backup is not 100% safe and convenient. Honestly speaking, compared to make an iTunes backup, copying contacts to computer is much better.
Here in this post, we will introduce two methods to solve this transfer issue. Please refer to the following tutorials to transfer your iPhone contacts to PC.
As we all know, unlike other smartphones, iPhone doesn't allow users to backup contacts to the SIM card. So if you get a new handset, normally you need to copy your former iPhone contacts to your PC and then import them to the new device. The following will show how to copy your contacts to PC, just read on!
Select Setting from your Home screen > Select Mail, Contacts, Calendar then press Import SIM contacts > Connect your iPhone to PC > Open iTunes, press iPhone icon on the left side of the iTunes window > Click box next to "Sync Address Book and Contacts" > Press "Sync". After these steps, all your iPhone contacts will be copied to your PC.
In this solution, we need to ask RecoveryTool iPhone Data Recovery for help. It is a professional tool which allows you to backup your data and export the data you want to your device or PC.
Step 1: Connect your iPhone to PC
To begin with, download and install RecoveryTool iPhone Data Recovery. Then run it and get your iPhone connected to your PC. Choose "Data Backup & Restore", and later you'll get a main interface as the picture shows.
Step 2: Select File Type to Backup First
