Default Export or Save Contacts

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to save or export the contacts that have been entered on the blackberry by the user? I am trying to add a blackberry to the BES but it says I have to wipe the data.

Run a backup of the data on the device using DM. Wipe the device, restore the contacts, then activate on the BES.

If you activate on the BES first, it will flag the Address Book as wirelessly reconciled and you won't be able to restore the database from DM.
