    I sync'd my iPhone contacts to Google/Gmail through iTunes. Then when I sync'd my android device with my Gmail account, everything was there. Microsoft may have a similar means to sync with Google.

    Gmail also supports the vcard format for import if you can export as that.

    i would recommend creating a new gmail acct just for backing up your contacts on your phone. then also make a back up using back up assistant.

    I plan on trying gmail first but i would like to have a plan B.

    There are tons of ways to go about this...

    You can put the contacts into something like gmail or outlook.

    There are also many free applications that can backup your data and make this transfer!

    If your Winmo phone is still active you can download the m:IQ app and that will backup your whole phone, contacts, calender, texts ect. to an online private account. Then when you get the new X (Sweet!) you can just download m:IQ on that phone and all your data will automatically load on! Pretty cool!

    Hope that helps and gives another option! Enjoy the Droid!

    $16.50...Oh how I hate the effing Dare...eff it, backup assist should work just fine. I ain't dropping any more money on this peice of crap one day before I get the X.

    I have the Dare too and I'm just going to use Backup Assistant to transfer. Its free if you are using the phone as the primary number on the account.
