The explicit directions are for mobile devices only. I changed Internet providers, and have over 400 contacts. Getting a csv file would be great, but Verizon does not allow that. Their customer service is the major reason I switched. If you call a representative, you will get an email telling you not to call them and to use their online services, which often do not address your problem.
