Contacts are stored in /home/nemo/.vault/People/data/all.vcf

if you need a hint how to get there: https://together.jolla.com/question/1919/connecting-to-jolla-via-ssh-over-usb/

[root@localhost nemo]# more /home/nemo/.vault/People/data/all.vcf

/home/nemo/.vault/People/data/all.vcf: No such file or directory

[root@localhost .vault]# ls -a

. .. .git .modules .vault

What's now? o.O

[root@localhost nemo]# cd /home/nemo/.vault/People/data
[root@localhost nemo]# ls -a

If your not so much into shell there is a nice client for windows:
Login to the device, click yourself to the .../People/data directory and transfer the "all.vcf"-file to your Desktop or wherever you need it.

I have no problem with shell, and as you can see in the .vault directroy there is no People (that ls -a was in /home/nemo/.vault)

...sorry I forgot to mention that you have to make a backup (system settings/backup/create). This creates the files mentioned above...

Ah, that explains :-P But then this is not an "always up-to-date" contacts store, but just an export. For a simple export this is more simple, IMHO :)
