Export/copy contact directory from VVX411/500


Export/copy contact directory from VVX411/500

I have a user who has a vvx500 5.6.017325 firmware.  His phone needs to be swapped out and replaced with a new vvx500/501, but it has a over a 100 manually inputted contacts.  


Is there a way to export the manually inputted contacts and import them on the new phone?

If you are using a provisioning server the phone would upload its Mac-directory.xml file. You then simply rename it to the new Mac. If you are not using a provisioning server and have no way of setting one up the numbers will be lost.
