When you are an iTunes user you probably found out, that you can synchronize your iPhone contacts with Outlook and Gmail or Windows Contacts. Since iOS 5 you can also store your iPhone address book to the iCloud. But, not everybody feels comfortable with the use of these technologies and maybe just wants to keep a copy of the iPhone contacts on the computer or an external hard drive.
To do so you will have to use a third party app like CopyTrans Contacts. This application allows you to export and save iPhone contacts to the computer, to transfer contacts to Outlook, Gmail, Excel, Thunderbird or other iOS devices like iPod Touch, iPad and iPhone. Additionally you can also add, edit, group and delete iPhone contacts and import contacts from Outlook etc to the iPhone.
Step 1: Download and Install
In clicking on the download button, a zip folder will be saved to your PC. Open this folder and extract the file named "CopyTrans Contacts.exe". Save it on your desktop and run the app with a double-click.
