Backing Up Cell Phone Contacts

Do You Store Your Contacts' Data Anywhere Else?

Last weekend's server crash resulting in T-Mobile Sidekick users losing all of their data left a lot of Sidekick users understandably angry. At first, T-Mobile considered recovering the lost data unlikely, but now it seems that most of the data has been recovered and will be restored to Sidekick users shortly.

Part of the problem: Microsoft offers no digital backup for the Sidekick. My iPhone's address book is backed up on my computer, but (similar to my Moleskine addiction) I also keep a paper address book for important phone numbers — just in case. What about you? Do you have your contacts' information stored somewhere so you won't lose it?

Yeah, I do. I sync my Blackberry with my Outlook Contacts and Calendar. I also have an Excel file with addresses/phone numbers that I use when I do my Christmas Cards and that falls the routine backups I do onto my external hard drive every week or so. I am totally paranoid about losing data (especially pics - I have almost 30,000 digital pics) so I am a backup nut.

Only because my iPhone is so nifty and does it for me. Otherwise I probably wouldn't.

no i don't, but i really should but i'd have to manually write them all down and i just don't see it happening i have important numbers memorized though (like my family and boyfriend's cell phones) and my girlfriends could easily be contacted via email if i needed their cell number urgently
