That version is going to be Windows mobile 7 then. There are a couple of options for that version on backup, one is to use the built in app called outlook. It works similar to the google app. The other is by using a third party software like copytrans.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Which do you recommend?
Expert:  Randy replied 1 year ago.

The easiest will be to use the outlook. You will only need a microsoft account. There may already be one on the phone.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there's one on the phone
Expert:  Randy replied 1 year ago.

Open this URL in Internet Explorer (or the browser of your choice):

Step 2:

Login with the same Microsoft Account used as the main account on your Windows Phone.

Step 3:
Choose Export for Outlook.com and other services from the Manage-menu

Your browser will prompt you to save a CSV-file (comma separated values). This is the exported file containing all your contacts .
