Extracting back up data from the iPhone/Itunes backup

recently my iPhone was stolen.  I have a back up of all the data in iTunes, but no way to access that data... is there a tool that I can use to extra the contacts information from the backup using a emulator or some other software so I can restore them to my new windows mobile 6.1 device?

Depends on how you actually back up your contacts.  If you back it up from iTune to Outlook or outlook express or Windows Address Book (WAB), you should be able to extract it from those applications.  Unless you back it up in a different applications than the ones I just specified above.

Once that is done, you can then use Windows mobile 6.1 and ActiveSync 4.5 to transfer the contacts to your phone.

The backup of my iphone is whatever software that iTunes uses to back up the phone it self...   the extension on the backup file is: ipsw
Are you using a Mac? If so just open address book and export from there...
