How to Sync Contacts from iPhone to Computer without iTunes/iCloud/Outlook

“Hi, I have been following the “Afterdawn” forums for a while but have dared to register and write only now when I have a problem. Here is what my situation is: I have an old iPhone running iOS 4 and wish to migrate to a Galaxy III. I have all my contacts on my iPhone and wish to transfer them to my PC so that I can then import them to my Android.

1. I do not wish to use my new computer’s iTunes as it will ask me to sync/upgrade my iOS and will wipe my iPhone music – I do not have access to the old computer whose iTunes library was synced with my iPhone’s library.

2. I have a Google account with lots of contacts featuring only email addresses – by no means do I want to merge these contacts with my iPhone’s contacts and I’d rather not create a new Gmail account just for the transfer.

3. Ultimately, I am looking for a direct way to bring my iPhone contacts to my PC.”
