Default My mini-usb is broke, can I transfer contacts another way?

Please Login to Remove!

So my mini-usb on my 8830 is broke and won't even charge. I have like 50% battery life so I can at least get on the phone before it dies.

I have a new 8330 curve on the way but is there another way to get the contacts off my phone without the usb?

and I'm pretty sure my last backup won't give me much since I think it was a while ago, but may be a option.

Thanks

Bluetooth is your answer!! There is not way I would copy all of my contacts down, no way. The Desktop Manager will support a Bluetooth connection.

Get a Gmail account.
Install Google Sync.
Sync your contacts OTA to your Gmail account.

You probably solved this problem by now, but in addition to syncing with bluetooth, you have the option of charging with a charging cradle. That would use the metal pickups on the bottom/back of the phone, no the usb socket.
