Re: How to restore contacts off the iPhone to the Mac

I have a solution for solving this problem. You need to disable auto synchronization inside the preferences in itunes. After doing that you have to keep one entry inside the Address Book and one entry inside iCal. Now try to connect your iphone to your system. Then press ctrl + click the phone the device pane. Here you need to select the reset warning. Then try to select the option of sync all contacts. Once you are done with this, click on apply. Select the option of merge when it will prompt you to merge or replace your contacts & calendars. Hope this will help to you.

Re: How to restore contacts from iPhone to Mac

There is a way which had worked in my friend phone. What you need to is go in the text message conversation. Look for the message of any person which was in your contact list. At top right you can see Contact. Click on it and you can see the persons info. Add any name to that contact and save it. Once you press back you can see some of your contact. Try this out.
