Exporting and backing up iPhone contacts

Since I'm changing jobs, I'll have to give up my company iPhone. The problem is that since I use Linux, iTunes doesn't work. For photographs, I use Google+'s Instant Upload feature which backs all my photos up in the cloud. Backing contacts up is a little bit tougher. Luckily, there's a very simple app that does this. It's called My Contacts Backup and all you have to do is choose which format you want your contacts exported in (csv or vcf). It takes just a few seconds and when it's done, you can email yourself the file. Simple.

  1. Hi, just wanted to point out an alternative I have used to backup my iPhone contacts to my computer called copytrans contacts:

    The program works from a computer, while the app described in the post works on the iPhone.
