I want to migrate from Blackberry (RIP). How do I convert my contacts to a standard format?
I just got this working so figured I'd document it for posterity.
sudo apt-get install barry-util barrybackup-gui barrydesktop
Then use the backup utility GUI to make a complete backup of your database. We'll call it
Unfortunately the desktop utility seems to only export one record at a time.
Instead, use the command line:
btardump -d 'Address Book' -V backup.tar.gz > address_book.mime
That's it. The
.mime file should have a bunch of VCards inside.
