Exporting your contacts on Windows Phone

We need a bit of a workaround to export Windows Phone contacts to the vCard format. For the following tutorial you will need to have your contacts synchronized with your Windows Live account.

1. Log in to Windows Live People
2. Click Manage in the top left corner, and select Export for Outlook.com and other services. Save the file to your computer on a location where you can find it again later.
