    If you open your Gmail account on a computer you will see an option that says Contacts. If your old mobile can sync with Gmail then that would be the way to transfer your contacts.

    If your end goal is simply to get the contacts onto another handset, you could try My Phone Explorer. it is a third party piece of software that will allow you get this content straight onto your PC so it can be transferred to another handset.

    The difficulty you have is that the phone sorts contacts by groups types, such as Phone contacts in one group and Gmail contacts in another. When you sync with Gmail from my understanding it will just sync Gmail contacts. To get around this I would advise you either follow the steps in my post above or you can use the Sync Station section of PC Companion to sync you contacts via Phone-PC-Gmail.
