Default Too many contacts - export

Please Login to Remove!

How can I get my 20,000+ contacts from my Curve 8530 to a CSV or exported somewhere online? It seems like there is no way without syncing software crashing because of the time a transfer takes...

and I'm using a mac comp.

How about setting up a gmail account and syncing your contacts to Google? There are some online contact backup solutions offered through App World too.

tried with icontact. It seemed like it did a backup to csv, but I can't get that csv to the desktop. I tried emailing the file to myself, but bberry says the file is too big to email...and it's only 5mb...

3.9MB limit on BlackBerry emails. If you hook up to your pc via usb you should be able to drag/drop the CSV file onto your desktop.

nope. for whatever reason, the csv is not visible on the media card...but I checked, the file is not hidden... so not sure why it's not working. I've been trying xobni and every other contact program... none seem to be working.
