Hi, I have iPhone of the first generation and have recently bought a new 5S. How can I back up my old iPhone contacts to my PC and then transfer them to my new iPhone? I obviously cannot use the iCloud with the old iPhone. I also do not want to sync the iPhone with iTunes in order to transfer the contacts to the PC since I am on a new laptop and the music on the iPhone will get deleted during sync with my new empty iTunes library. Is there any other method to back up my iPhone?
