How to export Address Book from Blackberry to Windows Contacts in Vista...
So I had a **** of a time trying to export my address book to my computer because I am running Vista, which does not have Outlook but instead "Windows Contacts," which Desktop Manager doesn't support. So here's how to do it. I'm not sure if this is the quickest way, but it doesn't take that long and is very easy to do:
Open up a Yahoo account if you don't already have one (it is free). Open up desktop manager, connect to your Blackberry and double click on "Synchronize." Go to the "Configuration" tab, and click on "Configure synch." Click on "Address Book" and then the "Choose" button. Select "Yahoo" and "Export," then back to the main Syncrhonize window. Click the "Syncrhonize" tab, make sure "Syncrhonize Organizer Data" is on, then press "Synchronize now." Now go to address. yahoo. com. In the upper right corner, click "Import/Export." Under Export, click the button next to "Microsoft Outlook," and save the file. Now open up Windows Contacts, click the "Import" button, choose "CSV (Comma Separated Values)," and click Import. Find the CSV file that you saved from Yahoo, and there ya go. You're all set.
Hope this saved some people a headache. Any questions just post to this forum.

I have a question on how to export addresses from bberry to windows contacts vista
Hi there - I really appreciate your posting. I had a **** of a time trying to export address book to my computer because of Vista. I followed your tips however came across a snag. I went to yahoo.com. I didn't see the "Import/Export" in the upper right hand corner? Thanks!

You can do the same thing without the Yahoo account part... When you get to the "Choose" part from the instructions above, choose "ASCII Importer/Exporter". This creates the same .csv file on your desktop which you can then use to import inot other programs or phones. Make sure you don't muck with the field headers or layout if you're going to use it to import back into your bb device.Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

Thank you so much!! I finally managed to tranfer my address book from my Blackberry Pearl to my new Storm 2 using the Yahoo method! I was going crazy about it...
I imported my address book from my BB Pearl to Yahoo and then from Yahoo to my BB Storm 2 and I finally have my address book!
I first tried with the Desktop Manager data tranfer assistant, but it changed some options on the Storm 2 and I had to wipe the handheld because the e-mail wasn't working properly (inbox and ring tones) and I couldn't fix it.

i have to ways and hope to solve your problem i have the same problem before but i didnt find an easy way to copy all my contact numbers to my PC and after 2 month by accidently i was trying to hack my other mobile by useing bluetooth just testing some steps.
first way : connect the 1st mobile you need to transfer the contact numbers to your 2nd mobile or your laptop by useing bluetooth then its connected from the 1st device blutooth list press on the name of your 2nd device - now you'll see an option called "trasfer contacts"
Note : it will send a file to the other device with all your contact list in one file vcf and if you open that file in receiving device it will start to add all the contacts number to the device ,so if you are using your friend or other person mobile all you need to do is to accept receiveing the file and then cloes it dont open it then download it to your PC or send it by bluetooth to your laptop.
2nd way : connect your mobile by USB and search for *.vcf files in your device and copy it . connect your other mobile and see where is the vcf files folder is and past it their.
thank you all
