Retreving Outlook Contacts from an iPhone

So a month ago, my Outlook PST file got corrupted and distroyed all  of my contacts.  Ironically, I have all of my contacts on my iPhone Contact List.  Since I have over 3500 contacts, I  am not anxious to start over; but instead, try to transfer my iPhone Contacts file into Outlook Contacts.  

Has any EE Professional had such a challenge?

Maybe I'm dense(?), but why wouldn't you just sync the iPhone with a fresh, empty Outlook using iTunes?

If you sync with same computer you can tranfer you contact to windows address book then import to outlook.

I would turn off auto sync then backup iphone. Then change sync under info tab with windows address book.
Next you can import it in to outlook.
