I have a new mac and an iphone and want to take the contacts off the iphone and save them onto the mac, but have this massive fear that the syncing will delete all my contacts if it goes one way, ie computer -> iphone rather than iphone -> computer .
I have no contacts on my computer so just on the iphone and would like some advice as to how to take the contacts off the iphone safely.
Thanks.

I think if you sync it with Address Book it will merge them so you will have the contacts on the Mac & also on the iPhone if that's of any help? :)

I was thinking that too but I don't have the contacts written anywhere else so I'm paranoid I'm going to lose them all if that little bit of doubt I have about the syncing one way (comp -> iphone) is true!

Edit: Just checking, do you mean syncing the address book through itunes or is there another one you mean? Thanks.

Yes syncing it via iTunes, I'm not sure if there is another way. I don't want to say go ahead & do it just in case you loose your contacts as I'm not 100% sure

I'm going to give it a go, I just spent last 45 minutes handwriting my contacts just in case! Never realised how many people I had on there! Thanks.

It took several hours to sync and then the contacts aren't showing in my computer's Address Book, but they are still on the iphone address book (which is a relief as I half feared losing them altogether!)
Any ideas on how to get them onto my computer?
