There are huge number of softwares which allows you to transfer the contacts from your iPhone to the computer system.
  1. Connect your iPhone to your PC and use DiskAid v3 (Very simple) or CyberDuck via SSH to access the root of your iPhone.
  2. Navigate to the directory : / private / var / mobile / Library / SMS
  3. Then copy the file " sms.db"And paste it into a folder on your computer. Example , on the desktop in a folder well specific to SMS as " Save / SMS«
  4. Then navigate to the directory : / private / var / mobile / Library /AddressBook
  5. And copy the contenuti file in a folder on your PC vic . Example , on the desktop in a folder well -specific contacts as " Save / Contacts«.
  6. Restoring files is as easy as running the reverse process . Put the files you just copied into the iPhone the same locations.
  7. SMS: / private / var / mobile / Library / SMS
  8. Contacts : / private / var / mobile / Library /AddressBook

Before transferring them into Outlook you need to Export (I board to create in your document a files MyContacts ): Search CONTACTS > > Top right EXPORT > > vCards ( dossiers.vcf )> > Record or you can find them easily ( eg new folder MyContacts). Open Outlook> > lower left CONTACTS ( normally empty). Slide All Contacts converted.vcf on the part contact Outlook. Here you can edit them by double clicking and / or making groups by CATEGORIES (right click on category and define a color you rename )
Replace these contacts in the phone. Can chance that you 're gone from an iphone to another which is not a smartphone , in my case the Meizu M8 is under Windows CE ( I also test with the HTC HD Monday) but it is likely that other have system Sync of this kind. In connection device synchronization wizard asks you to sync your contacts Windows via Outllook (AC is great ) and the first sync your contacts can be found on the phone. (to reassure you that you can make a "Copy directory telephone on the sim). Contact management is done and via Outlook Contacts which have easier with a real keyboard and a Big Screen ( flat preferably ) , then it syncs.

Re: How to backup and transfer contacts from iphone to computer?

Outlook is good tool for you to transfer iPhone contact to computer easily.

That gives you a comma separate list of your Outlook Contacts. Transfer that to your new computer, then you can import them into your new version of Outlook with the following steps:
On the File menu, click Import and Export.
Click Import from another program or file, and then click Next.
In the list, click Comma Separated Values (Windows), and then click Next.
Click Browse, locate your file, and then click Next.
Click your Contacts folder or another folder that contains contacts, and then click Next.
In the list, click the file that contains your address list, and then click Map Custom Fields.
