Possible to download VZ backup assistant data to Storm

Storm doesnt use "get it now" so is there anyway to transfer all the contact data that is stored in VZ Backup Assistant to the storm?

 

Besides the obvious one at a time input.. i was hoping i wouldnt have to transfer 450 contacts by hand.

 

Thank you in advance

Is there some way you can export your data from the VZ Backup Assistant?

 

Once you do that, you can import that contact data to Outlook or Outlook Express and sync to the BlackBerry using Desktop Manager.

Hmmm.. i could export into a text file and then drop it into outlook.. ah but you mean contacts.. no.. you cannot export contacts into outlook.

 

I have been informed that if i take the phone to a VZ dealer with the old phone, they can transfer it...

Be nice if they could set it up so i can do it myself, would save man hours in customer service.

 

Thank you very much for your reply.

Sure you can "import" contact data INTO Outlook. You certainly can. Outlook will import Excel files, CSV and ASCII text files just fine.

I have been having a similar issue. Thanks for the info in this post. At least this gives me something to try so I don't feel like I am losing my mind. I hate it when electronics win in a battle of wits! A good place for data recovery memphis You can never hace too many backups!

 

Cheers!:smileyhappy:
