I want to export my Contacts from Nokia Suite 3.2.100 to a CSV file. There is neither any mail software (e.g. Outlook etc) installed on the machine, nor do I wanna use any web app (like Google Sync etc). All I wanna do is a straightforward export to csv. TIA!
Really? Nearly a year and no solution? If this actually reflects the Nokia Suite's inability to export in a plain CSV, then this is ridiculously stupid. Nokia used to be very open and friendly in terms of accepting/letting go users from/to other plateforms. Now it is as closed and obsessively protective as Apple. I really didn't expect this. So freakin disappointing..... SO FREAKIN DISAPPOINTING !
- Please upgrade to Nokia Suite 3.7.22 which latest Nokia Suite version
- Then go to Contacts view in Nokia Suite, you can see there contacts, what you have
- Select all contacts what you have
- Go to File menu and from there select Export Contacts
- You will be asked, to which folder your contacts will be saved
- After this, your contacts are saved as individual vCard files to selected folder

^ Thank you for the reply. But the goal here is a CSV file, not vCards. I already have vCards. I understand that these vCards can be imported in any third party contacts software, but again, why would nokia remove such a basic funtion of exporting as CSV. This option was there in previous suites, but they pulled it away in newer versions. Very unfair, ignoble and backward thinking.
Also I tried importing these vCards in Windows Live Mail but it does not import cards with some particular fields.
I do not have my Nokia phone anymore, which is why I was trying to export the contacts in backup file as CSV. This previous version has almost all its options disabled since the phone (which I dont have anymore) is not connected. I do not have any other nokia phone either. Is it still possible to import contacts from vCards, backup file into the PC Suite?
Previously, did you synchronize your contacts with your Outlook using Nokia Suite? If you are not sure, you can check your Outlook or check it under Nokia Suite settings:
Go to Tools>Options>Contacts>Sync with contacts Application
If your contacts are available on your Outlook, refer here for the instructions on how to export them as a .csv file: http://office.microsoft.com/en-001/outlook-help/ex
*The instructions are intended for Outlook 2010. You can search through the website for instructions if you are using a different Outlook version.
I just completed CSV export. I imported the vcards into thuderbird (using MoreFunctionsForAddressBook extension) and then exported the csv. Thank you all for your support. So long Nokia !
