How Can I Transfer or Copy Contacts from HTC to Computer/Mac

You can imagine how annoying the thing is and how hard to find all of them back. Since contacts are regarded as the one of the most important data on the smart phone for daily communication, we need to protect these vital numbers from deleting, losing or damaging by accident. However, things have not always been going as you imagine. Except for restoring factory settings, people always lose their contacts for various other reasons, such as the improper operation on the device, virus attacks, failed to upgrading and so on.
