    I thought that the one vCard might have ALL the contacts, but it doesn't. I go to outlook and it is only the one contact.

    and i think i get what you are saying. maybe i haven't done something correct, but my DROID contacts are not in my GMAIL. if i could get them to GMAIL I could then get them from GMail to Outlook. Know how to get my DROID contacts to Gmail?

    sincere thanks again

    Try going to:

    Menu > Settings > Accounts & sync

    Click your regular GMail account and make sure your contacts are clicked to sync.

    I had to download a driver from the motorola web site.

    But first go to your contacts hit the menu key and select export to SD Card.

    Then Connect you phone to your computer.. on the top of your phone you will see notifications..pull that menu down and USB connect and select Mount
    Then you can get your contact.

    Now if someone can tell me how to edit them I would be happy!

    I haven't done this myself but it would imagine its just a delimited text file. Open Office or Excel should do the trick.

    Perhaps the whole picture is missing from the original question. I am wondering the same thing and think I have the solution. So assume you are using ActiveSync with Exchange and the DROID and you no longer have access to your Exchange server which has just crashed. If you want to preserve your contacts so that they are not lost when you have to setup ActiveSync once the Exchange server is recovered or you have to move to another host then you have to back them up. This is what I have done:

    1) In DROID Contacts, touch the menu button and chose Import/Export. Then chose Export to SD card. All contacts will be exported to an automatically named .VCF file.

    2) To import the contacts into Outlook:
    [UPDATE: THIS IS NOT WORKING]: Outlook only imports one record from the .VCF file.
    a) Remove the SD card from the DROID
    b) Insert the SD card in your PC and copy the .VCF file to the PC
    c) From the Outlook menu chose "Import and Export..."
    d) In the "Import and Export Wizard" chose "Import a VCARD file (.vcf)
    e) Select the .VCF file you copied to the PC

    3) To import the contacts into Google Contacts:
    [UPDATE: I'VE VERIFIED THAT THIS WORKS]
    a) Remove the SD card from the DROID
    b) Insert the SD card in your PC and copy the .VCF file to the PC
    c) From Google Contacts chose "Import" from the top right of the window
    d) In the "Import" window click the "Chose File" button and select the .VCF file you copied to the PC
    e) Google Contacts will import the file

    4) To import the contacts into a new ActiveSync Exchange mailbox:
    a) Leave the SD card in the DROID (to be safe you could copy the file to the PC per the instructions above as a backup)
    b) Setup the new Exchange ActiveSync account
    c) Let the initial sync complete
    d) In DROID Contacts, touch the menu button and chose Import/Export. Then chose Import from SD card. Chose the .VCF file that was created in step 1.
    e) Once the import is complete check Outlook contacts for your Exchange mailbox to ensure that the import was complete.

    Hope this helps and solves this for others.

    I don't exactly know why, but my contacts in Outlook disappeared.
    I went on OWA and they were not there either.
    Somehow, they got deleted.

    I logged into Google and all my contacts were there. Yay!
    It is strange though because I had my contacts sync'd from Exchange.
    I never had any contacts in my Google account, they somehow got transferred from Exchange into Google.
    Does Google automatically add contacts from other accounts??

    After reading mforester's post, I was able to export my contacts from Google and import them back into my Outlook. Whew!

    Thanks!! Mforester (Michael)

    Go to your contacts/people app then click on the menu button then click on export then click export to storage some phones will let you choose what format others lie Samsung will only let you export in vcf format. I believe outlook can import and export in vcf and csv. Good luck.

    To export contacts from Android phone to pc, i've tried tons of methods, and finally i found certain tools are very useful on this kind of problems! You can search for them from the web! Finally, i used iPubsoft Android Desktop Manager, really great!
