How to EXPORT contacts from BB10/Z10 (sync not required!)

I have all of my contacts on my Z10 (transferred from a Bold device with BB Link) and I do NOT have a copy on the computer or in the cloud.


I simply need to export these contacts in any form so that I can import them on the computer and/or put them in a syncable cloud location.


This can take the form of extracting them from a BB Link backup set, exporting them from the device in some other way, "moving" them from the device Contact list to a cloud-synced account on the device, using a third-party app, etc.


Again, I don't need to synchronize them in any way, I just need to get a copy of them.  I haven't been able to find any built-in way to do this, or even any app that purports to have this functionality.


I am using OS X, but if absolutely necessary I can gain access to a Windows machine.

Do you still have your Bold device?  You can just use BlackBerry Desktop to move them to Outlook.
