    Downloading Contacts to PC

    When I got my phone, it was synced to my Google contacts as well as my contacts that were on my old phone. So now I have duplicates. I wanted to download all my contacts onto my computer to put them in a spreadsheet (since some of them are saved directly to the phone, not to my google account), correct them, than upload to google. I plugged my phone into my computer via my USB cable, but now what? It gives me folders for my phone, but I don't see one that hold all my contacts. Is there a way to sync them?

    You'll need to export them first from the People app. Press the menu button while in the people app, select import/export > export to storage. It will export to mnt/sdcard as a .vcf file. Then you could use a converter to get them into .csv.

    I tried doing that and it only exported 1 person. I need to export all of them (unless I'm opening the file wrong and can only see 1 person)

    I know how to merge them once they are on Google or on my computer, but some of my contacts are saved directly to my phone, not to my Google account, so I will need to upload them to Google somehow. Besides using Google, is there a way to take all my contacts from my phone and load them onto my computer?
    If I have a contact saved directly to my phone, it will not let me edit and resave it (in teh contacts area of my phone) as a google contact. This means that I would have to manually redo all my non-google contacts. It is much easier to download everything and do it on my computer, than re-upload.

    I am with Verizon. I was able to pull the numbers that were saved onto my Verizon account, the ones saved on my google account, but not the ones directly saved to my phone.
