FYI - the backup function doesnt back up "contacts" - it only does application data, photos, settings
i used the sync feature (and used it as a one way sync from phone to computer) and managed to save my phone contacts to my laptop on Outlook
BUT, for some strange reason, not all the contacts have got saved....would you know the reason? like there are some contacts i added in the last day that have got saved on outlook but some contacts that i entered last week have not got saved (although i see all of them as contacts on my phone)

Back-up on the BB Link ought to create a full back-up (like on the earlier BB Desktop). However, if you have tried restore and not found contacts then I'm surprised; since I have not had the need for a restore, I really won't be able to comment, expcept express surprise. Shall try a restore in due course and let you know....
Sync with Outlook requires that you "map" the fields. For example, you may have stored 2 mobile, 2 home and 2 work numbers on your BB for a particular contact. Unless the fields are in sync with Outlook, you will lose data when backed up.
