Re: HOW TO CONVERT BB CONTACTS TO .VCF FORMAT?

None of those programs works? What happens, they all won't even open or what?

 

Do you know of a VCF converter if you go the file into an ASCII or CSV file?

Do you know if your Nokia will import ASCII or CSV files?

These programs do not support .BBB file format. They do not even open .BBB file.

 

My Nokia can only import contacts in  .VCF file format.

 

Please help.

Then that is a failing of Nokia. You should be complaining to them. BlackBerry has many output options, and if you can find one that will convert your exported ASCII or Excel file to VCF format, you'll be in good shape.

WOULD YOU PLEASE ADVISE WHAT ARE THE OUTPUT OPTIONS BLACKBERRY HAS? CAN IT SAVE CONTACTS IN .VCF FORMAT?

No, it can't save in VCF format.

 

Haven't I given you suggestions on how to do what you're needing?

Have you tried them?

In first step sync bb contacts to outlook, once contacts exported inside ms outlook then you can export in vCard formats for that you have to follow inbuilt option provided by outlook outlook export to vCard option (for few contacts as it does not allow bulk export) or deploy vCard Magic tool (for bulk and multiple contacts export). As i read about vCard Magic that work with dual function.

 

  1. Export multiple contacts from Outlook to vCard
  2. Import single or many vCard files into Outlook

Guys i found it!!:Clap:

No Blackberry backup extractor **removed**, no crackberry! It was simple from the beginning!

You just install dropbox on your blackberry (provided that you have an account), open it, press BB button and select "export/upload contacts to Dropbox"!! And that was it, within seconds you'll have a new vcf file on your dropbox folder [blackberry sub-folder].

 

Oh, i'm so **bleep** at RIM for locking so unnecessarily the backup files, and at Apple that since Lion/M. Lion has lost compatibility with BB services (no more iSync)..

 

Cheers!

:Rockon:
