Help with contacts

Ok I have an e-mail address that is work related and is only available when I am connected to my WIFI at work. the email works great but,  I cannot figure out how to get my contacts into the PB contacts. I have about 400 contacts and it will take forever to manually enter them.

 

any suggestions
