if you try to sync any media, it will be erased from your iPhone. if you want your phone to load your contacts into OSX, then sync and when it asks you what to do with your contacts, tell it to "merge" instead of replace. Again, if you want to keep your music/videos/pics on your phone, be sure to uncheck all of those from syncing before you do this.

as long as you choose "merge", your contacts will be loaded back onto the computer from your iPhone.
