need to export contacts from Z10
I have unsorted contacts everywhere. outlook, google etc.
I have managed to sync up my Z10 with google apps - calendar contacts etc and then to ical on my macbook. getting a sync to outllok mac 2011 is still an issue, sync services are not working.
what i would like to do is export my filed and perfect contacts from my Z10 to a csv or compatible file to then import into google, outlook etc. I cant see how to do this and have not found any luck on line. anyone know how?

I don't think that's how it works. I'm pretty sure on my Nexus 4 there was no way to do it because linked contacts are still separate contacts, just displayed as one by the phone. I remember having that issue when I sold the N4 and bought the Z10, but I just ended up linking my contacts manually. Actually, I found that u only needed to do a few. The phone was smart enough in linking the overall majority, which was a pleasant surprise considering Android only linked 1 or 2 automatically.
Im not worried about links etc. I just went through my contacts on my phone as it is my master and most updated list, made sure all catagroies are correct. I now need to export those contacts to a file somehow to import into other programs
i figured out i can bluetooth them or email them but there is an issue. the Z10 will not export any contacts that you have made links internally. just awesome, I spent about 2 hours linking all my contacts twitter, face books etc. not sure if i should unlink just to export or if there is another way. that would be a lot of work again.
i am synced with google apps thru active sync and it works great for calendars and contacts, but it only syncs a newly added contact, it didnt take my existing contacts from my phone and sync them, which i thought it would.

Contact X or PIM Backup and Restore (both $1.99) will create a .vcf file.
Make sure you have some backups before you start doing any consolidating in case you need to reverse something.
To consolidate contacts on one sync'd account (i.e. - gmail):
1--You can remove any sync'd accounts (this will take these contacts off of your device)
2--Use one of the apps above to export device contacts to a .vcf file
3-- You can then import the .vcf file to gmail
4-- You should be able to easily export contacts from other sync'd accounts and import to gmail
NOTE: I don't think either of the apps listed export to "csv" ...... they both export to "vcf" files. Outlook.com email will not deal with "vcf".... it uses "csv". I think google and yahoo will handle either .... not positive.
This is just one way or example........... hope this helps!!!!
