Edit and Backup your Contacts on Your PC

iDEN Phonebook Manager is a free PC application from Motorola that lets you edit your iDEN phone’s contacts on a Windows PC. It also lets you backup and restore your contacts, transfer them from one iDEN phone to another and print out a contact list. iDEN Phonebook Manager requires a data cable and works with Windows 95, 98, NT, ME, XP and Vista. I don’t know if it works with Windows 7.
