Cell phone

Postby farwest » Thu Aug 28, 2008 2:20 pm

Looked for a answer to this question but couldn't find one. I want to dowload from mls the telephone directory to my cell phone. Is this possible? Do you need a certain cell phone or app to do this?

There's a wide variety of software that can sync with cell phones. The specific answer depends on the desktop software you use to sync with your phone. Many phones can sync with Outlook; some sync with Palm Desktop; others have custom applications.

Most of these applications can import CSV files. Others may import vCard format. You can use the MLS export, or you can export from the local unit web site (LUWS), which can do CSV or vCard. Also, from MLS, you could run the Telephone Directory (or any other directory), use Ctrl+Shift+C to copy the data, paste it into a spreadsheet, then save as CSV. Then import your CSV or vCard file into your application, then sync with your cell phone.

If you go with using Outlook, you need the vCard export split up into separate .vcf files for each individual vCard.

I found a VBScript that I think will do the job. Read this post to find out all of the details and to download the script:
