so I'm a jailbroken phone but I'm unsure if I'll be keeping it jailbroken when the sdk comes out (looking forward to the stability). Anyway I don't want I lose my contacts when I restore my phone. Will the backup of my jailbroken phone work on the restored phone? Is there another way to gauruntee that I have a backup?

im no jailbreak expert here at all.. but I would think so.. that must be a pain for those that always restore. I would have to say it would be there but don't take my word for it

If you go from 1.1.2 or something below 1.1.3; then go to 1.1.3 your backup WILL NOT work. You can use the demo of iPhoneDrive to backup your contacts, then just be worry free unless you get robbed.

That's right. If you're on a jailbroken 1.13, it will work. However, if you're on a lower firmware, no. Also take this into consideration; Apple may release 1.14 with the SDK. 1.14 may not be compatible with 1.13 backups. For this reason and others, I'll be Restoring around Tuesday of next week.
