Back up contacts on laptop

I have a government issued BB 8830 Smartphone and have my email set up on it coming in from gmail.  I have multiple contacts on the phone that I want to back up on my personal laptop just in case I damage the phone by dropping it, etc...  I do not have access to an exchange server, I just want to back them up on the laptop. 

 

Anyhelp on which software to download?  I have Microsoft Outlook 2002 version on the laptop and I am running Windows Vista.

How do I sync it once I have the software downloaded?

Re: Back up contacts on laptop

If you need to make a backup you need use Blackberry Desktop Manager, intall it, and after connect the device and make a full backup.
