Re: need to export Z10 contacts

Do you know of a way to save whole sms messages ?

To either the sd card or to transfer them to my PC.

 

 

Thanks,

Fred

Nope. And you're off topic in this thread.

Platinum what?

InTouch Contacts doesn't sync with Outlook but beast enough to export to CSV file and import in to Outlook.

Re: need to export Z10 contacts

Hi,

 

I have a Z10 which has a cracked screen and I need to extract the contacts into a CSV, however the Link software is lets just say poor and does not facilitate.

 

How can I extract contacts to CSV without having to install an app on the z10 which can not be used as hairline crack on screen has rendered interface useless

Re: need to export Z10 contacts

If you could install an app to the device, easy.

 

Otherwise, sync to Outlook and then export a CSV file from Outlook.

Or backup to your PC ONLY the Settings file and then perhaps you can extract the .bbb contacts to CSV


**********************
There are a couple of options for extracting and viewing data from a the backup files.

1. you can find out more here: https://sites.google.com/site/ipdparse/home
For .bbb backup files, use this macro to extract seven "primary" IPD files (Address Book, Calendar, SMS Messages, Tasks, Memos, PIN Messages and Phone Call Logs)
IPD bbb Extract macro https://sites.google.com/site/ipdbbbextract

2. Another options is MagicBerry from MenaStep... which extract from a backup IPD or BBB file, split IPD files, etc. http://menastep.com/pages/magicberry.php

3. Another IPD and BBB file utility is BlackBerry Backup Extractor, and is available for PC and Mac, and can be found here: http://www.blackberryconverter.com/ There is a free and paid version.

Re: need to export Z10 contacts

Hi J,

 

Many thanks for your response, I have thus attempted to extract contact list from .BBB back up but failed as Black Berry Link software stores data completely differently to the Blackberry Desktop previous software.

 

1)  I have used both tools but fear they only work with previous BB  software, extracted files http://prntscr.com/1ezkf1

no IPD files extracted

 

2) Again no IPD files

 

3) 4 attempts to download but still waiting

 

4) syncronizing with outlook gave 3 records out of 930 contacts

 

I think only option is to get another Z10 restore backup to phone send contacts and email receipient and then burn Blackberry and unistall all software

Re: need to export Z10 contacts

ugh, sorry, you're right.

Read this thread about halfway down and another user explains the Link .bbb files:  http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/BlackBerry-Z10/how-can-we-extract-contacts-from-bbb/td-p/2440...

 

HOWEVER, I do know this... Call O2 and ask for your issue to be ESCALATED (use that word) to BlackBerry tier two technical support. I know for a fact that they can extract the .bbb embedded TAR files within. That's one option.

 

I know you need your contacts, I would dead without mine (but I backup my files, sync wirelessly AND backup contacts to InTouchContacts as well.. three different failsafe methods).

Re: need to export Z10 contacts

Thanks again for your help J,

 

I have contacted O2 and Blackberry directly to no avail, although I must say O2 were very helpful but kept coming up against the wall of impossible request.

[ Edited ]

BlackBerry support should help you with this, but O2 has to escalate it for you.

 

Meanwhile, can you try a ONE-WAY only sync from the device to Outlook?

 

and, the crack on the screen has completely rendered installing an app from AppWorld impossible?
