need to export Z10 contacts

I need to export (or share) my Z10 contacts, which i seem to be able to do via bluetooth, text email etc.  this is fine.  the issue is after spending a couple hours linking all my contacts to their respective twiiter facebook etc accounts, I have discovered you cannot share a contact that has links set to it.  

what do i do? are there options? I really do not want to spend all the time to unlink half my contacts if i really do not have to.  that would really be a giant waste of my whole day.  any suggestions?

Re: need to export Z10 contacts

Do you need to share all of them, or are you speaking of sharing just one or two now and then?

Re: need to export Z10 contacts

i actually want to share (or export) the whole file to import into my google app contacts folder.  I could easily do a bluetooth transfer, but then i realised it wont share or export a "linked" contact file.  this is frutrating as I spend about 2 hours linking over 100 or so contacts out of my 300 contacts so i would prefer to not go back and unlink everything if possible

Re: need to export Z10 contacts

Simple. Check out Contacts to CSV in BlackBerry World! You can find it at http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/122624

Re: need to export Z10 contacts

i tried it and its only exporting about 20 of 400 contacts.  this is getting frustrating.  such a simple thing and once again blackberry makes it next to impossible.

Re: need to export Z10 contacts

Does the app indicate why it is only exporting 20 of the 400?

Re: need to export Z10 contacts

No it didn't. I ended up in linking every contact and using blue tooth to export. Than re linking them again. What very time consuming

Re: need to export Z10 contacts

Z10 is the worst mobile I have ever had in the BlackBerry series since it started. No backup for my 1780 contacts!.. no group messaging which was available in previous BlackBerrys.. and always hoping to get updates to solve the problems. I have tried with Etisalat telecom carrier for a solution but as I understand it is out of their hand and waiting for BlackBerry to solve the problem... why to bother then? An Android or IPHONE are by far more better!

Re: need to export Z10 contacts

fou_nightingale, I've been using a free app named InTouch Contacts for backup. Works great. Check AppWorld.
