    So I just go an iPhone 3G and had to enter about 100 phone numbers manually into the phone. My previous phone, a Motorola SLVR, did not connect to my computer and I do not keep my info in Outlook other than a few email addresses....I'm 17, not a business user.


    So anyway, I was wondering..is there anyway to like back up or save the numbers onto my computer so that just incase my phone needs a restore i have the numbers there to put back on. I don't want to spend another 30+ minutes entering in these numbers!


    thanks

    nevermind figured it out. couple questions about it though...


    does it back up everything including music and pictures?

    how long does it take (i currently have about 8 GBs of stuff on there)?

    does it include my phone numbers?

    and where does it put the back-up information?


    thanks!

    Wish you posted this earlier... You could have stored all your contacts to the sim and then imported them.

    Not sure if 2g or 2.0 bought this. Settings --> Mail, Contacts, Calendars... --> Import SIM contacts (towards the bottom)

    What OS do you have? Vista or XP?

    Ensure you go into the info tab. Here is where you set where you want everything to sync to. Before I had MobileMe, I had everything synced to Outlook. Although I have Vista, I have Outlook as well.

    Why don't you just right click on your iPhone in iTunes and click Backup? That backs up all settings, contacts, etc.

    You have to transfer out your music with a program though.

    If you want to backup your apps, right click your iPhone and click Transfer Purchases.

    Oh, no problem. I also hate losing everything when I restore.

    You can easily backup all of your settings and apps just using iTunes. For Music, just get an app like iFunbox or iPhone Explorer and find the Music folder.
