Hello, i'am work in iPhone software developer company.

But not have a mac or PC at home now, so, i'am not sync my iPhone around six months.

Yesterday, i try to install a iPhone OS 3.0 Beta 2 for development purposes.

So, very strange, but when i plug my phone in Mac, they not synchronized before upgrade. Upgrade fail. Now i have a brick.

So, may be you have any ideas, how to save my address book?

If you are legitimately in the iPhone developer program, contact Apple and they'll assist you.

If you're not legitimately in the developer program, then I think you're out of luck (and IMHO, rightfully so).

And as a developer, you should know better than anyone to be 100% certain that your information is backed up properly before using a beta version of software.

Wedge, thanks for reply!

Yes, of'couse i fully legitimately iPhone dev. And understand all around using a beta software.

I just plug iPhone in new dev Mac, and i think it sync my address book automatically. I don't keep it in mind, just tap Upgrade button. But, then it fail, i discover what address book keeps only default contacts.

Now, i do a recovery in iTunes.
So, i lost all my contacts... =(((

Be careful guys!

That's why it's important to sync your phone a little more often than every 6 months...

Also, you may have saved them if you used google sync.
