Sync with Outlook or a Google account if you have one
I use Google for my contacts and calendars.

Last time I did that I ended up with 5 BILLION contacts in my phone. I had to reset the whole phone. Never again.

The iPhone automatically backs up to your computer every time you sync it with iTunes. If you plug a newly-reset (or new) iPhone into your computer, you have the option of restoring it with an old backup. You can fiddle with how it operates in iTunes settings.

Apple replaces everything except the internal circuit board when they refurbish ("remanufacture") their stuff, so if it's working when you initially buy it, it's no more likely to randomly break than a new iPhone.

I'm pretty much decided on an iPhone and there's only one thing holding me back: The fact that I can't send photos to another phone.
I don't know how quickly I will be able to get over this. Time to ponder the LG Vu one more time.

Ugh, and I'm really going to miss the impressive photo quality my Sony had. I could take pictures nearly everywhere with that. Why must you be so difficult, Apple? Why! WHY?!

If you are all having problems with your iPhone may I suggest the

The T-Mobile myTouch 3G™ – 100% You | Official Site






Or you could Jail break and unlock your phone and go with a different Carrier

Yeah but I dont want to sync contacts because I ended up with 5 million on my phone and that was not what I wanted.

I'm not sure why the iTunes backup system would leave you with five million contacts, unless you started with five million contacts in the first place.

If I sync the contacts, it puts ALL my email addresses from my email account into my phone

I just want to back up the phone numbers from my phone, to the computer but I see no way to do that.

If you disable 'sync contacts' entirely in iTunes, it will still back your phone's contact's up in case they need to be restored. The sync process and the backup process are entirely separate.
