One of my friend's dad had a old nokia 7610. The phone finally gave up today. He called me up & asked me is their any way to back up contacts stored on the phone. All contacts are in the phone memory. Anyone ?

well it should not be impossible but what you are seeking is sort of forensic shit. you would have to take apart the phone and locate the memory module and use it to extract the data. you might have some luck going to some specialized mobile market like gaffar in delhi. but it would probably a futile exercise.

If the contacts are REALLY important then take it to Nokia Care.Don't take it to the local repair guys, they will screw it even more as it's an ancient phone.

No backup's nothing.
