I need to copy my numbers from my private Nokia to my office BB. I have not found a way to export my phone numbers from ovi or elsewhere. On Mac iSync stopped working with snow leopard and OVI on windows does not export. I do not mind using a windows suggestion. I lost a description on how to use the ovi backup files in another program.

What I have done so far

I simply do not understand why Nokia is giving us such a hard time. I would not have considered switching from Nokia if Mac had been better supported. It is so frustrating that they just seem not to care losing Nokia fanbois like me - especially since I am this outspoken on the net and what i say on popular forums gets indexed by google fast. I am very close to just go iPhone here.

Hope someone has Nokia's ears


UPDATE: I Downloaded NbuExplorer from sourceforge. It will extract everything from an OVI backup into VCF, VCS and VMG files.

Very useful software and free.

You're right SonyEricsson or Samsung, never ever Nokia. –  Aki Dec 19 '10 at 10:34

You may want to try

  • launching isync via an admin account
  • mv ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.syncserver.plist ~/.Trash/
