Windows 7: Transferring *raw* vCard from Blackberry to Win7 PC using bluetooth

Transferring *raw* vCard from Blackberry to Win7 PC using bluetooth

I want to transfer a vCard using Bluetooth (after all other ideas failed) from a semi-working Blackberry phone to my Win7 laptop.

I bought a small Bluetooth dongle for my PC to go about this and installed the WIDCOMM bluetooth software to the PC. I successfully set up the Blackberry connection.

Under Bluetooth Settings -> PIM interface, options for "Business Cards" include "Do Not Accept" and "Outlook". Unfortunately, there's no option to "Accept raw file", since I don't want the vCard to go directly to Outlook, but just as a raw file to my PC. Is there a way around this?

Do you have a microSD card? If it is anything like the Android I had the vCards are stored on the card and then I simply copy it across to Windows. That being said I know that Blackberry devices encrypt certain information forcing you to use their propriety application.

Do you have outlook? You can export the vCard from outlook to your PC so that is a possibility.

Thanks. No SD card currently in it. The problem with exporting the card from Outlook is that it changes the vCard, and I need the original (for programming purposes).

I found a method. I simply uninstalled my Outlook 2003 program. Thus the PIM interface isn't installed, and the .vcf file is thus treated as a regular file!
