Restoring Contacts .nfb File.

Hi guys, is there any way wotsover that i can restore contacts to my N70 from a .nfb file that woz created doing a backup of contacts held on my 6630 using pc suite ???

When trying to do a restore, the .nfb file is not recognised - it doesn't appear on screen in pc suite in the directory that it's stored in.

I've been told that i can only restore this file/contacts to another 6630. If this correct it seems a bit (a lot) silly as that would defeat the purpose of a backup as i don't have the 6630 anymore !!!

If this is the case, is there anyway to view the details in the file ?? I have all my contacts in there - over 250 - and it's so frustrating not being able to get at em !!

Any help appreciated.

I don't really wanna buy another 6630 just to get my contacts back but if i have to then so be it !

Cheers in advance.

If you send us your NFB file we will send you extracted contacts in CSV file in Contacts Manager+ format. Then you can import them back using CM+.

Direct support of NFB/NFC files will be added into Contacts Manager+ in some of future versions.

If you have NFC file made from N9500, it contains contacts in vCard form (business cards, VCF). If you display this NFC file as a plain text, you will find them by the end of the file. You can copy them out of the file. Remove Unicode headers of each record and you'll get plain multiple-VCF file.
