Hey folks,

does anybody know how to convert a KIES SPB phonebook file into a vcf file? My KIES is not connecting and I have my latest contacts only as a SPB file

Boy,

I was not aware this is such a problem! Let's hope KIES V2 will fix the problem !

You can save your contacts as vcf directly on the phone in the contacts app (menu->export).
Hope that helps.

there is one way i found
1. open Kies
2. open your last saved *.spb file
3. save the file again as *. vsf manually in the file name area
4. go to were normally saved spb files ( C:\Users\ _\Documents\samsung\Kies\PIMS)
5. you will find all the contacts saved as vsf file.
6. select all contacts and copy them in a directory (ontacts)
7. connect your samsong to the pc and copy the directory (cotacts) in to the sd card
8. disconect your samsong
9. select the contact icon
10. from the left key press and select import contact from sd
job done

This Works perfectly, just saved all my contacts Thanks a lot.

the only thing is that is ".vcf" and not ".vsf"

PD: i know this question is old but it was from great help.

i am in the same situation, but for gt i9100. I've followed the above steps but get

Reading of vCard data has failed.

any one know another way to convert the spb file to vcf or csv (csv would allow me to sync them through gmail.)
