bold 9650 trying to sync contacts to desktop

My screen is broken so I can't see my contacts.  When I connect my BB to the desktop and try and sync the address book-it does not allow me to do so.  When I syn my BB to my desktop (a general sync) It shows up as an adobe doc which says is damaged. I just would like to print my contact list- any suggestions?

Thank you

Re: bold 9650 trying to sync contacts to desktop

Your BlackBerry contacts do not sync to any kind of Adobe software, so I don't know what you're doing to get that.

 

You need to sync them to Outlook, Outlook Express or Microsoft mail address book.

 

Or, you can backup your Device, creating a BBB file.


**********************
There are a couple of options for extracting and viewing data from a the backup files.

1. The IPD Parse macro is designed to read a Blackberry IPD file and create reports in MSWord or MSExcel. It is free, and you can find out more here: https://sites.google.com/site/ipdparse/home
For .bbb backup files, use this macro to extract seven "primary" IPD files (Address Book, Calendar, SMS Messages, Tasks, Memos, PIN Messages and Phone Call Logs)
IPD bbb Extract macro https://sites.google.com/site/ipdbbbextract
These IPD files can subsequently be used as inputs to the other macro, IPD Parse, to produce reports.

2. Another options is MagicBerry from MenaStep... which extract from a backup IPD or BBB file, split IPD files, etc. http://menastep.com/pages/magicberry.php

3. Another IPD and BBB file utility is BlackBerry Backup Extractor, and is available for PC and Mac, and can be found here: http://www.blackberryconverter.com/ There is a free and paid version.

Re: bold 9650 trying to sync contacts to desktop

Well, actually all three work. I've used all three. The first option is probably the best.

 

And, you can't blame someone for wanting to live and feed their family, referring to the third option. I don't own it or many any money from it, but people have to eat.
