Never enter your contacts into your mobile phone again.

The folks over in Yahoo! Mobile have just launched a new product called Contacts Back-up. Can you guess what it does? It’s about time, if you ask me. I’ve always been suprised that the carriers didn’t use they their network to offer this service.

Now save your contacts from your mobile phone into your Yahoo! account.

  • Combine your contacts on your phone with those already in your Yahoo! Address Book.
  • Synchronize your phone contacts with your Yahoo! Address Book as often as you like.
  • Synchronize your calendar and tasks as well.

It’s only for Cingular and T-Mobile at the moment. (Grrr, annoying how everything in the mobile space is so often carrier-exclusive.)

How else will the always-on network connection of phones change the services offered by carriers, the orthodox web, and the interactions of both?
