Samsung :: A900 Export / Backup Phone Book

I've been reading that bitpim doesn't work with my A900 yet how do I go about backing up/exporting the phone book so I could restore it (after flashing it to a900m) OR convert the data/contacts to some other usable format (like .vcf or .csv)?

Samsung :: PC Studio Phone Book Functionality - Import - Export
I downloaded a copy of PC Studio from the Samsung global download site and loaded it on the PC (running xp). I was able to get the program to read the phone's (A707 SYNC) contacts and I could copy them to the PC side of the prgorams window, but I could not find an Import or Export functionality. The HELP program says import/export should be options under the File menu but they are not there. I want to create csv files to save to and load from, just as I could do with the BITPIM program on my Sprint phones. Does the PC Studio program not have Import/Export capability for phone contacts?

Samsung :: SPH-a900 (aka MM-A900) Powers Off Or Reboots Randomly?
I have a samsung SPH-A900 fliphone (later known as the MM-a900) on the Sprint network. Randomly the phone will power itself off (with or without the animation) or will completely reboot. Usually when charging it powers off and when not plugged it it reboots (but sometimes it just powers off when it's being used) Problem seems to be worse at home (7/7 bar reception) than on the road (2-4 bar reception)

I've tried 3 different batteries (2 aftermarked extended and 1 OEM) but it still happens. Phone was master-reset and re-OTA-programmed with no change from either.

Samsung :: SPH-A900 - How Do I Delete My Number From The Phone?
I successfully unlocked my Samsung SPH-A900 that was on the Sprint network. When I go to Settings>Security>Lock Phone it shows "unlocked". But when I look in Settings>Phone Info>Phone Number it still shows my number. I know the MSL but I don't know how to delete that information. I did Settings>Security>Reset Phone and did a reset but that didn't do it. Is there some software that I can download to use to manipulate the settings or assign a dummy number to this phone? I would like to delete my number before I sell it.

Samsung :: A900 - How To Get Pictures From Broken Phone?
I have a Samsung A900 and well I kinda snapped it in two pieces. The bottom piece with the number pad on it is still good but the top half with the screen is broken off of the bottom half no wires connected or anything. I am just wondering if anyone knows if I would still be able to get my pictures off of the phone. I have a lot of pictures on this phone that I really do wish that I could get them off it. If anyone has any ideas on anything for me to try I am willing to try anything that might work. I am with Bell/Aliant.

Samsung :: A990 - Address Book Backup Using Bitpim?
I am trying to backup my address book using Bitpim, but the A990 has pretty limited Bitpim support. I can access the filesystem, but nothing else. I already found my pictures and the files that are all my text messages, but I have no idea which one of these folders contains my contact list. What folder is it hidden in? And what software may I need to read it?

BB Curve 83xx :: How To Export Address Book To Windows Contacts In Vista?
So I had 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.

IPhone :: How To Export Contacts And Get Backup As Printed List
My goal is to make a back up of my iPhone contacts, preferably in a printed list. I figured the way to do that would be to somehow merge my phone contacts into my Google Contacts on my MacBook (however, I do not want to merge my Gmail Contacts into my phone, as there are 100s of contacts there I do not want/need on my phone, so I am proceeding cautiously).Under Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar >iCloud. I have Contacts "On" (but have not done an iCloud backup FWIW because I am not sure my data is less than 5gb). Doing this alone does not work.

iPhone 3GS, iOS 4.3.3, version 4.3.5

Samsung :: A900 - Turns Itself Off And On Again
I have a Samsung A900 and it's stuck in endless loop. It starts up and I get the Sprint screen light, it buzzes like it is turning on, then goes dark, and turns itself off and on again. I've tried taking the battery out for a little while, but I put it back in and it goes back to this same endless loop. The phone is totally useless.

Samsung :: How To Sync Contacts With Your A900 Via USB
I recently bought an A900, and discovered that if I wanted to sync contacts with it, I would have to:

1) Get a bluetooth dongle for my laptop
2) Load all my contacts into Outlook
3) Somehow use Bitpim to transfer them

Well, screw that. I don't have a bluetooth dongle, and I don't use Outlook. I do have a USB data cable, I want to use that. If you want to use it, you will need to download one or both of these:

You might just need the Contacts Copier program, if not the drivers for the phone are in the first link.

First thing to do is use Contacts Copier to backup your phone's contacts. If you can't get that working, none of this is going to work. The only advice I have is if it's sitting at the "trying to connect" countdown screen, click "Back", unplug the USB cable, plug it back in, and try again. It seems to forget the phone's there about half the time, and doing that always works for me.

Now that you have a PBO file, download this:


This is a Visual C++ project with an EXE file in the folder. To use the program, type "A900_contacts.exe file.pbo" where "file.pbo" is your PBO file.

At this point, all the program does is parse the file and print your contacts to the screen. As I have time this week I'm going to modify the program so it can take contacts from my Samsung i500 (probably in the form of a CSV file) and generate an appropriate PBO file.

The bonus with doing it this way is you can ignore the phone's built-in character limits for fields. More than 20 characters for a name, etc. I'm not sure what happens if you try to load a file containing more than 500 phone numbers yet.

In the meantime, if you run into problems, or the output isn't correct, or have any other questions, let me know. I haven't tested this with an A900m (because I don't have one) so if someone could let me know if this all works with those that'd be great.

Samsung :: A900 - Mono Or Stereo?
So is the 2.5 mm headphone jack in The Samsung a900 mono? I bought a 2.5 mm-3.5 mm stereo adapter today, but when I used it I got sound only in my right ear. If I pulled it out of the phone a little I get both ears. This is the second adapter (different brands, different stores) I've bought and none of them are stereo. So I think it's a problem with my phone. So can anyone confirm if my phone is mono or stereo?

I have somone that I need to block from calling me. I know I can block SMS through the sprint site (or I'm told I can) but apparently sprint will not block incoming calls from a specific number. Is there a setting (or app I can install) that will do this? If possible I'd even like to avoid getting voicemail form them... Samsung SPH-A900 (dont know software revision, but I keep the phone updated so probably the most recent one)

Samsung :: A900 - PBO File Conversion Application?
So I downloaded the nifty "Samsung Contacts Copier" tool, and "backed up" the contacts from my A900 to my laptop, running XP. Now, I have a .pbo file which when opened in notepad is hardly readable, and scrambled. My eventual goal is to get my contacts on my iMac and the Address Book, but I don't see how this is supposed to help me "back up" my contacts at all. Is it really a proprietary *sp* file Samsung created to keep you using a Samsung device? It seems it functions as little more than a back up in case your actual phone was replaced.
