To transfer all the contacts in your device to the outlook in your pc you need sync your blackberry with the pc using Blackberry Desktop Manager.

Here is the link to download Desktop Manager

Check this link ABC Amber BlackBerry Converter.

 

You can convert your SMS and then take prints as well. But you have perform these task after having a Backup of your device data in your PC.

I have had the BB manager installed. But my back up file is unreadable by ay program on my computer. I don't understand how I would convert it to a file that can be read by lets say outlook express or even a simply word document so printing contact list woud be possible.

If you don't have Outlook or Excel you are going to have to use ASCII to output the file to notepad when you set up

Synchronization chose ASCII and chose Notepad as the place to output the file.
