Make fun of me all you want, but please help me.
I have a new IPhone and would like to just download a contacts list of numbers, etc. from Comcast.
I spent over two hours with Comcast and no luck.
Is there a way to do this without downloading email? My eyesite is so bad, I don't want to do email on my phone but I would like to have the phone numbers listed.
Thanks in advance.
If your eyesite is bad, perhaps you should use lenscrafters.com
OP, go to your iPhone service carrier and get them to help you figure it out. Dealing with Comccast is such a pain in the ass, plus they don't know shit about iPhones. You may have to reset your phone, but you should be able to access and download your contact list.
We need more information, OP. Do you use any other email account on your phone?
I don't have Comcast email, but on most webmail systems there's a way to import your contacts to a CSV spreadsheet.
Do you sync your phone to a Mac or to Windows? If to a Mac, export that CSV file to your Mac Contacts app and sync your phone to iTunes with contacts enabled in iTunes.
If to Windows, do the same with Outlook, if you use that. (I don't know any other mail/contacts client on Windows than that, sorry) and sync your phone to iTunes with iTunes with contacts enabled.
Of course with the latest version of iOS, you don't have to sync your phone to a computer at all anymore. If that's the case, I don't know what to tell you other than to
^Oops, I meant to edit out the "other than to", because I truly have no clue beyond syncing them from iTunes on a computer.
Also, can you tell us why you don't want to set up Comcast email on your phone? You might be able to just set it up, let the contacts sync, then remove the email account. Would that remove the contacts as well?
I think R2's answer may be the best.
R3, in working with the website, there was a way to import to CSV, but I had no idea what that was. It was listed with icons like AOL, AT&T, etc. Also, I use Windows, but not Outlook (again, another failed sync with Comcast).
R4, because of my eyes, I prefer to use my laptop for email. The keyboard is so small on an IPhone.
I have been using computers since the very early 80s and find a keyboard more comfortable.
Again, thanks for your help everyone.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
