Re: How can save contacts from storm to PC

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


There are a few methods:


1) You can synchronize to a supported desktop PIM

  • KB12268 Applications supported by BlackBerry Desktop Manager for synchronization
  • KB03315 How to synchronize organizer data (calendar, task list, memo list, and contact list) using the BlackBerry Desktop Software

2) You can export to an ASCII or CSV file:

  • KB04312 Create and synchronize with an ASCII export file
  • KB11194 How to import contacts from a CSV file to the BlackBerry device


3) You can conduct a backup to your PC and then find a 3rd party PC app to extract and convert the proprietary format backup file into something you can use on your PC.


Good luck and let us know!
