You can integrate contact syncing with your Yahoo account:

Re: How to import contacts from Yahoo to BB contacts?

Thanks a lot, it does help, and you quickly answered: THANKS.

However, my problem is to import from Excel or other format compatible, addresses in the contact application (carnet d'adresses in French).  Is there a way to do so?

Philippe, you're welcome.

 

I would recommend first importing that file in to your Yahoo contacts on the Yahoo mobile web page where your contacts are. Those contacts would then sync over to your BlackBerry Address Book. That's the easiest method.

 

Alternatively, you can use an older version of the BlackBerry Desktop Software v6.1 or lower, to import a CSV file to your BlackBerry.
