Trasfer Calendar from Blackberry 9780 to Samsung android phone.


I have 2 phones, One being Blackberry Bold 9780. I am unable to transfer Calendar from Blackberry to Samsung android. I have taken an .ipd file backup from Blackberry to my PC with the help of Blackberry Desktop Manager. I have no idea how to sync this file to Outlook and then transfer data to Samsung android. Please help.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

The IPD file has only one intended use...as the source of restore to a BlackBerry. It is therefore of a proprietary format, and cannot natively be used for any other purpose.

But, there are are 3rd party PC apps that can parse it and present it to you in human readable format...you need to find one of those to do what you are asking for, so as to get your data into a format (e.g., CSV) that Outlook can import. A few seconds on Google will I am sure reveal to you plenty of possible "IPD Reader" apps for this purpose, most of them that are free are perfectly usable (but I do not recommend one versus another).

Good luck!
