Re: contacts ??

Once the account is setup on the PlayBook, the contacts should migrate over from Yahoo. I don't use Yahoo but I know the setup of the Yahoo accounts is slightly different so I would suggest you read BlackBerry Knowledge Base article KB13799 .

Re: contacts ??

I did not understand your question clearly.

 

Usually if you sync your blackberry and yahoo contacts, it creates two seperate contact lists.

 

There is one way to merge both the contact lists. Connect your blackberry to blackberry desktop manager and sync both the contact lists to microsoft outlook. Then, reimport the merged contact lists from outlook to the phone.

 

You cannot merge the contact lists on the handheld.
