Hi I am one of the experts here on Just Answer.com
Can you please tell me what you synced your IPHONE 3 with to put contacts on it?
IE Mobile Me, Outlook .....
Yes when you plug in your iphone 3
if you click on the iphone in itunes
click on the info tab that appears in Itunes
You should see something that says Sync Contacts with
Is that setup for your Iphone 3?
If that is it means your iphone 3 is backing up its contacts to the selected program
which in that case you can then plug in the Iphone 4 and check the box to sync contacts with and pick the same program and your contacts will then sync to the new phone
Ok the reason you probably aren't getting contacts is your IPHONE 3 is actually not setup currently to sync its contacts with your computer.
What you need to do is plug in the iphone 3, Setup the SYNC contacts by checking the box and selecting the type of program you want to sync the contacts with be it outlook or windows contacts... once you sync the contacts on the phone will be backed up to your computer
Then you need to plug in the iphone 4 go to the info tab once again CHECK the Sync Contacts with box and select the same program you used for the iphone 3 and it should sync the contacts to your new phone
Yes all your saved numbers are contacts
If this route is not working you can do a backup of your Iphone 3 then restore the back up of your Iphone 3 to your Iphone 4
To do this plug in your Iphone 3 then right click on it in Itunes you should see the option for BACKUP
Once the backup is complete plug in your Iphone 4 right click on it and say restore from backup and select the backup of your Iphone 3 this would put all the information from your 3 onto your 4
