    I want to replace my mother's old Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini e10i, with a new smartphone.
    But i am unable to transfer her Contacts... tried many ways like Sony sync, Gmail sync or apps.. but with no result.

    Is there a manual way to extract them? or any tips?

    are her contacts sync's with google? you might want to do that then you can sign in to a new phone with the google acct and you should be good to go.

    To do it manually open the contacts app and in its settings there will be an option to "export" them (may not be in the top level of options, but it will be there). This writes them to a vcf file. Copy that to the new phone and "import" them.

    Also keep a copy somewhere else in case anything happens to the phone - if you aren't syncing them then you need a backup.
