I have contacts I may never need again but do not want to delete them. I certainly duo not need to wade through them on my iPhone.

How can I have an archive file that I can load if I ever really need an old contact?


Thanks.

Not sure you can do this directly on your iPhone.  What are you using for email outside of the iPhone?  Gmail?

Actually, I was thinking the second one could be on the Mac, for backup purposes. This would keep me from deleting contacts I most likely would never need again. Instead, I'd put them in the archive address book folder.

Yes - but what are you using today for email?  What's your domain (Gmail, yahoo, comcast)?  Without that, I can't give you any good ideas, unless you want to manually enter them all into a spreadsheet.  But doing an export of your contacts if they just have basic info such as name, email, phone, etc., to a CSV or similar file and storing it on your MAC would probably be perfect, if you're rarely, if ever, going to need them.

Well, can I export from Address Book to a CSV file? If so, I could export to a backup file for safe keeping.

Yeh, I'd export to the CSV, then you can read that CSV with any spreadsheet app like Excel, probably Google Apps, etc.  Even a word processor will read it, just not in a pretty format.
