Viewing contacts on PC companion and other problems

Hi, OK so i have saved my contacts information from my z3 to sony PC companion, but i can not see how to view my contacts in PC companion, if for example i loose my phone then how can i view my contacts on my PC ?

My music is playing up on my phone, so if i go to deelte a playlist there is no option to delete it, only the share etc option , also if i go to add a song to a playlist , the list of playlists does not show , only an option to start a new playlist shows up, so basicly i have to make a new playlist per each song, obviously this can`t be right. I took my phone in for an emplyee of a mobile phone shop to see my problem and he agrees that something is wrong. I look foreward to your advice. thank you.

The closest I can get in how to access data in back-up files is this: http://www.johannesdeml.com/blog/extract-data-sony-pc-companion-backup/

Re: Viewing contacts on PC companion and other problems

Thank for your reply but i really for the life of me can not understand why is it all so complicated , it seems ridiculous that you can not just copy your phone contacts to your PC to save in case you loose your phone.

Having just spent hours trying to sort out my photos from PC companion to put back onto my phone after replacing the memory card i can only conclude that the Sony PC companion is not very good at all and needs to have a total sort out.

There are other places on the net like Google where you may synch and edit all your contacs without the need of PC Companion.

I wish

I so wish that somebody somewhere could tell me how to save my phone number contacts and put them onto my PC. I have tried all sorts and really can not believe that this task is so impossible, it is ridiculous. I can not view my contacts on PC companion, i have tried saving htem to the foogle mail account but when i try to view them it is not possible. By the time i find a solution i may as well have just hand written down every phone number onto a piece of paper,, so much for technology.

Heeeeellllllppp please....
