Contacts backup

I cannot find any method to backup my contact list: I made the general backup of course, but it's not clear to me if this saves also the contacts. Thanks.

Re: Contacts backup

Yes, performing a general backup using the Desktop Software with the BlackBerry connected does backup your Address Book. You can also do a specific Address Book on backup while connected by choosing on the Desktop> Device > Backup > Select data for the backup > choose only the Address Book.


You also should be using BlackBerry Protect for over the air wireless backups.
