    blackra1n RC3 on 3GS needs to be tethered for the reboot, simply attach your 3GS, close itunes, and re-run blackra1n, it will reboot the 3GS and you should be back in business again.

    I had the same issue earlier this year. However, my iphone was jailbroken so I was able to log in and copied all the music back to the hardrive (the files get renamed however, when you point itunes to it will read them fine). Likewise your contacts/calendar db file can also be backed up.

    Search on Google as well for other solutions.

    I am try to transfer all my contacts and setting in 3G to my new unlocked 3GS.
    Does "Restore from Backup" remove the unlock?

    I recently stumbled over a neat little tool called iTwin. It shows you everything like contacts, messages, pictures and more ... Awesome!

    Hi iPhoneHacks Team. My problem is that I have a very old iPhone which has never been synced to my iTunes library. I want to back up and transfer my old iPhone contacts to my new iPad. If I sync with iTunes, I will loose all the music on my iPhone. I also checked out some of the apps for iPhone contact transfer, but they all seem to be paid. Is there another free way to extract my old iPhone contacts to my PC and then import them to my new iPad?
