    My 8830 pooched out when it got wet. now I need to get my contacts from the computer(a desktop with no bluetooth) to either a file (so i can read them and write on paper) or to a new bb when i get it.

    I really wish i could view them on the desktop

    any ideas?
    i have looked through the forums and haven't found this problem or a solution.

    I would really like to be able to just simply view my contacts and my notes so I can manually write them down on paper. I only have about a hundred or so.

    Thanks a million.

    You cannot open the backup (.ipd file) on the pc. It can be read only on a bb. I think you can restore the contacts from the backup file to a new bb. While restoring go to Advanced options and restore contacts only.
