I have a Nokia Lumia 920 (Windows Phone 7.8) and need to backup the contacts from the device to the PC. I don't want to sync it with a Microsoft account or use an app or do anything like that. What I need is a way to backup the contacts a computer. Does anyone know of something that could help me do that? If you have any other solutions please list those too. One thing I did see on a different thread was the "WP7 Easy Backup tool Beta" (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...9571&nocache=1). I thought this might work but the download link wouldn't work; just gave this error message: "404 - File or directory not found."
I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

My Lumia 900 upgraded from 7.8 with 7.10.8862.144 OS Bluetooth allowed me to pair to my LG 90 with CM11 and seamlessly transferred about 600 or contacts if that helps at all. It however does not support sharing internet that way.

@arahmy Lumia 920 is WP8, not 7.8 and you cant use any WP7.8 tool because WP8 not full unlocked (jailbreak)

to backup live contacts (from microsoft account) go to https://people.live.com and login with your account.. select Manage and export for Outlook and other... you get CSV file with contacts...

for import to Android go to https://mail.google.com/mail/#contacts select "more" and import CSV file
