Unhappy [Q] Converting SPB to vcf files / Importing SPB without Kies

Gurus,

I recently switched to CM7 on my SGS I9000 International. Unfortunately there is no Kies mode in CM7 for SGS to connect to Kies.

Now that I have lost all my contacts, the only backup I have is an SPB file.

My contacts only imports vcf files and neither have I been able to find anything that imports SPB files or converts SPB files to vcf files.

Anyone can help ? Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeee....!!

If u have all your contacts in kies, export as a csv file and then import into Google contacts. If that doesn't import correctly, export as VCF, import to the windows 7 contacts (drag and drop all vcf files) then export from windows contacts as a csv file and then import to Google contacts.

Flash back to samsung, restore from kies. Then you could either sync contacts to google or use a backup app from market (also for sms, ...) or export from inside the contact app from samsung.

Thanks, if you want to merge the multiple vcf files which where create open a command prompt in the vcf's directory (Shift + Right click > Open command prompt in this directory) then type "copy *.vcf All.vcf" without the "". Now you just have to import the All.vcf to Google Contacts or your Android device.

Default Open in Kies?

Hi,

People seem to be having luck with that method, however could you be more specific about how to 'open the smb file in Kies' because I can't find a way to open the file using that software. 'Kies cannot open this file type.

I'm using the Mac version of Kies if that makes a difference?

Thanks in advance
