IPhone - Restoring Address Book

After using IPhone for more than an year, It was only yesterday I tried to restore the address book while upgrading the firmware to OS 3.0.

Using an application(Diskaid), I was able to connect to my IPhone from my laptop( Windows Vista). Then transferred the files from the address book directory -~/users/library/AddressBook to my Laptop under Root folder.

After upgrading my IPhone to 3.0 OS, I connected it to my laptop and using the same software,copied the backed up files into the address book and everything worked fine.

Basic requirements for this to work is the IPhone needs to be unlocked. The files that needs to be backed up are :

* AddressBook.sqlitedb
* AddressBookImages.sqlitedb

Jailbreaking is distinct from unlocking,Do you want to say Jailbreak instead of unlocking as a prrequistie for this?
