how to get Windows Mobile contacts from a broken communicator?

I have a communicator running WM6 (HTC Touch) it has an unusable touch screen (it doesnt react on screen touches), so it can be managed only via USB cable from a PC.

I need to get its contacts in any readable form.  

I have another working communicator with WM5 and it seems like it is doesnt supports WM6 pim.vol file because I tried to use the pim.vol from a broken device with no success of vew any contacts.

Also have tried to use a PPCPimBackup utility to export contacts from a substituted pim.vol with no success (0 records where found). However when checking the pim.vol contents in any text viewer - there're a lot of phone records.

you could try something like http://mymobiler.com or Pocket Controller if you can install it on the broken device

alternatively, you could write simple app (in c# for instance) that reads all contacts and saves it in some way
