If you go to your cloud, click on Contacts on the left, then click the red check box at the upper right of the contacts followed by the three dots to the immediate left of the red check box you will get a menu offering to Export All, or you can select which you want to export then select the three dots to export selected.

Again thanks for quick, concise instructions... Frankly, significantly

easier to use than those provided by the Verizon store personnel....

May I ask a follow-up question... I am using this list as a tool to search

for SKYPE users among my 130+ contacts. Using this as a check list to insure

I don't miss any. Unless I missed a step in the process... The list produced

in the "CSV" file, only provided "LAST & FIRST NAMES"... NO FURTHER

INFORMATION (Tel #, Email, etc). Did I miss a step?

While it's NOT imperative to have that info at the moment, can it be

downloaded as well ? ? ? It would make it somewhat easier to complete the

info when I do find SKYPE matches.

Please advise... Smiley Happy

I tried both saving the default and choosing manually the format to be csv, in both cases it created a fully populated csv file, the fields ended up in different columns but all still there.  It may be the way you are importing into Excel (I assume you are using Excel). Try opening the file in an editor like Notepad or Wordpad and examine the contents to see if you see everything that way.

Tried a couple of more times and you are indeed correct...The field moved

around and you need to adjust the column widths in the EXCEL spreadsheet..

But all of the info is there..much cleaner than using NOTEPAD, WHICH A MAJOR

NIGHTMARE!

For my purposes (searching SKYPE names that are in my contact list).. Now I

have a check list and cross the names off as I go through them if they come

up zilch!.... I would think, with 130 names I should get some hits..

Thanks once again for the guidance and instruction.

IMHO...YOUR INSTRUCTIONS / DIRECTIONS should replace those that Verizon

makes difficult to find and moreover , follow and USE.

The VERIZON WEBSITE REMOVED THE ON-LINE CHAT FOLKS , WHO WERE A REAL ASSET

AND HELPED YOU THROUGH ACTIVITIES SUCH AS MINE.. I HOPE THEY READ THIS

SUGGESTION!

I USED THE ADVISED csv, METHOD AND OPENED IT VIA excel.. as you said lots of

data was all over the lot... but it was there!.... I little bit of "column

deletion and expanding /contractions solved that issue.... Now I have a

complete list of all of my contacts and their tel #'s.. I will be spending

the next few days running them against the SKYPE files to find other

members.

You should write this process up and post it on the VERIZON CHAT BOARDS!
