    You can save your contacts to your Windows Live account. This is the email account you set up when you got your device. We also call this your Live ID. This email account is tie to your Marketplace parches and your SkyDrive storage space. Did you set up a Windows Live email when you first got your device?

    yes, I set up an email account with Windows Live and I have the Skydrive set up. How do I then back up the contact info? I am sure this is pretty basic stuff but I am new to all this. Thanks,

    When you add, remove, or modify a contact on your phone (or at windows live), the changes should be reflected everywhere that is synced with your Microsoft account.

    You can also export your contacts by clicking on Manage > Export

    It seems like it automatically adds any contacts you add on your phone to your windows live account. Essentially you don't need to do any backing up as it automatically syncs them "to the cloud" if you will.
