Can't view phone numbers

I need to download my contacts to my desktop and then be able to view them. I think they are downloaded. I can find no way to view them. When I try, it says I cannot open an .ipd file. I attempted to open using WORD and that didn't work of course. Now, each time I save my contacts, they save as a WORD file. All I want to do is simply view and print my phone numbers that are in my Blackberry. Help? Thanks.

That IPd file is a backup file.

 

You need to sync your BB contacts to Outlook or Outlook Express on your PC, using Desktop Manager.

Re: Can't view phone numbers

That was a huge help. Thank you! Ran into another issue. It says my "application is configured for wireless synchronization". I haven't been able to figure out how to reset that.

In your address book Options > Email Reconciliation > Wireless Reconcile - OFF.

 

Are you on a BES, corporate server for your email?

Re: Can't view phone numbers

I was on the corp server. I am switching jobs. I will be in another field so I do not want to keep the business contacts, only my personal contacts. Hoping to do that without having to write them all down. Looks like I got everything with your help. Thank you so much.
