Default export contacts to VCF files

Please Login to Remove!

Hi There,
I am using blackberry and recently bought another conventional phone which is not a smart phone.. and it doesn't have Datacable to synchronise with computer... Blackberry doesnt support the dual SIM and I usually roaming in 2 different states so avoid roaming charges Iam using another phone....

Well coming to the point How can I export whole my Blackberry contacts to VCF files at a time.....is there any free tools or like that..?

(tried in many ways...
1.synchronized with outlook and outlook to VCF. but only one contact at a time
2.synchronized with Google Sync and Google Contacts to VCF....it is also one at a time..
3. There are some tools but they are not free tools we have to buy)

The new phone only supports back up from media card as a VCF file only..



help would be appreciated

Thanks and Regards,
Desparado.

I was not able to find a method to send multiple contacts. you might try doing a backup and reading the file using a free IPD reader to pull out the contacts. From there try importing them to Outlook.
I have not been able to find another free way.

Magic berry works great to export from a backup to CSV or text file

I suppose if he can use MagicBerry to pull the file and then convert it, he will have his free solution.
