Default Need basic help with sync process.

Please Login to Remove!

I need to load the contacts from my model 8830 address book to my computer. I can find no useful instructions how to do this. I've loaded the Desktop Manager to my PC and have read all the help topics, but they all seem to be written for people who already know the jargon and how to sync their phone. As far as I can tell, the sync process has no real instructions, and I keep hitting dead ends. I do not use Outlook. I am concerned about losing all the contacts in my phone if I were to lose it. Need help, please.

If you do not use Outlook, you are probably out of luck. The BB and Desktop Manager only sync to a very few selected applications.

I do not think that you can covert to a .csv either.

You might try making a backup and see if you can find an app called ABC Amber. Not sure if that will do what you need or not.

Create a gmail account and use Google Sync to synchronize or make a backup of your contacts
