Problem: I am trying to copy ~300 contacts from my iPhone (in a Microsoft Exchange mail account that I now don't have the password for) to my computer / GMail account.
I have been using my iPhone to sync with a corporate MS Exchange (2007) server to keep ~300 personal contacts up-to-date and in one place. However I left the company yesterday and no longer have access to the Exchange account - password has been changed (although I think that the account still exists, for now). Going back to the security team and asking for access will be a massive hassle so that isn't an option.
The problem is that I thought that the contacts on my phone were copies, but it turns out that if I 'delete' the Exchange account on my iPhone all my contacts will disappear! So I'm trying to work out if there is a way to get the contacts synchronised somewhere else using only the iPhone (GMail? Or as a CSV file?).
I have full access to the contacts at the moment but whenever I open 'contacts' or 'mail' on the iPhone it tells me that my Exchange password is not valid, and I click cancel. I am worried that in a week or two when my old corporate Exchange account is deleted I may lose all the contacts.
I could also connect the iPhone to my computer and try and find them that way (by exploring the folder structure) but I can't imagine that would work as presumably the files are encrypted.
