Step 6 is where you want to be very careful, as long as you don't chose "overwrite the iPhone's contacts" your contacts will be copied via iTunes into Outlook. Choose moerge if you want to keep your current outlook contacts, or replace if you don't

Why not just back up the old phone with iTunes and restore to the new? Everything on the old phone will be transferred to the new one.

I used the app to transfer contacts from a broken iPod Touch to a PC. It should also work for your iPhone.
The method below does not require iTunes or an online connection:
1. Run copytrans contacts and connect your iPhone. Once the contacts appear drag them to your computer's Desktop or to, say, your Contacts folder
2. You will have the entries saved in vCard format on your computer.

Thank you, it is nice to know that when the mainstream methods fail there is still a way. I have managed to transfer my old iPhone contacts to my computer and then import them to my new iPhone using your suggestion. Appreciated!

All three of the solutions here are very helpful and I'm glad you were able to get them transferred!
Here is a support article directly from Apple that discusses transferring information from one phone to another: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2109. It may be helpful to some other folks looking for help for the same question!
