Re: Transfer q5 Contact to Gmail account

I have done. but it is long process. blackberry limitation.

 

First you have to creat Gmail account or use your existing one.

You have to add carddav account  in to blackberry. 

 

After configure the account 

go to contact and select contact  by press and hold for some time.

 

There will be a right side popup with option of select more. 

click on that.

 

select multipal contact.

 

again you can see side popup with Copy To  option.

 

select it.

 

After selection, you can see your configured Gmail account.

select it.

 

Press Done.

 

It will sync with gmail contact.

 

Enjoy.

Re: Transfer q5 Contact to Gmail account

Surprise ! blackberry do not have solution for this?

i tried my own but it should be from you.

Even after this also there is a problem.

I have sync the same with my 9700, it gives me all contact but no photos.

I can see all photos in Gmail ID but not in 9700.

What is the solution ?

Re: Transfer q5 Contact to Gmail account

Gmail is a Google Owned Client and is more Compatible with ANDROIDS...
Similarly as long as Blackberry was being Synced with Blackberry Server on a Blackberry Plan, Google Contact Pics were being Imported...
My Alternate Phone 9220 is on a BB Internet Plan @Rs. 399-00 PM and Gmail Contact Pics show on that.
On the Q5, I am connected thru a Regular 3G connection or Wifi ..Hence I have Imported FB account and Those Pics appear MORE CLEAR and FULL SCREEN whenever I use the Phone ...

Re: Transfer q5 Contact to Gmail account

Thank you for your reply.
Still i am not OK with this reply.
Blackberry 9700 contact can be uploaded in Q5 but i can't update
the 9700 with Q5 contact. For some reason I loose my Q5 and I have backup of Q5, I can't sync with 9700. Blackberry do not have support as far as contacts (which is very important for all) are concerned. It is very dangerous situation. Blackberry do not allow blackberry protect to upload the contact on Q5. (Sad and limitation of Blackberry) and hence we have to take a resort of Google.

Second, any channel you have created on Q5, you can neither run on 9700 nor on computer.

It is like you have created a email account on particular computer and if you are out of country or some diff. Place you can not access you email account. You must have the same PC. If you created any channel on Q5, it is only for that phone and not for PC.

There are lots of Limitation and compromise in this phone which RIM should remove on urgent basis.

I must appreciate the Push email facility and no one can beat that.
