With iCloud, you can back up contacts on your iPhone to cloud storage over Wi-Fi network connection with the backup accessible in iCloud.com. With iTunes, you can back up contacts together with other contents on your iPhone to the computer with the backup accessible but not readable. However, the free iCloud storage you can enjoy is limited and there are lots of iCloud syncing issues that are likely to occur when you use it. And with iTunes, you can't read the files you backed up whenever you need. I guess that's why you are looking for the way to back up your iPhone contacts without iTunes or iCloud. Luckily, there is EaseUS MobiMover Free, the freeware for iOS data transfer and file management, for you to make it without any cost or limitation. Read on to get more details.
