Saving Contacts to SD card

I have heard that I can save my Contacts to my SD Card.  Can someone tell me how this is done?  I have the BB Tour 9630 and a 8gb SD Card installed.

 

Thanks,

Brian

Re: Saving Contacts to SD card

Can anyone help me?  I have hooked my Tour up to my PC and went through all the folders and did not see my Contacts listed.  This can be helpful if my Tour breaks and I have to get another one.  Just swap out the SD Card and I'm set.

Hello,

 

I've seen your post and have let it go a while in the hopes that someone has a better answer for you. But, to my knowledge, the only native way to do anything close to what you are looking for is to export, using the Desktop Manager software, your contacts to an ASCII or CSV file and then store that file on your Media Card. Then, with your replacement device, you'd have to again use DTM to import that file into that BB. Much more cumbersome, IMO, than simply using DTM to take a regular backup of your BB so that you have the source file to use for a restore.

 

Now, my answer is for native-available things...I've no idea if there are any 3rd party things to do what you are looking for.

 

You might want to ask the person from whom you "heard" that this is possible how exactly they are doing it.

 

Best.
