How do I move or copy contact from one contact list to another?

I would like to move selected contacts from one contact list (e.g., Corporate BES) to another (e.g., private BIS) list.

 

How could I do it without retyping the whole contact info?

Do it by DM in "Backup and Restore" -> Advanced and choose to backup only AddrBook, then by the same way restore in new device, after that delete not needed contact from new device

Re: How do I move or copy contact from one contact list to another?

Sir/Ma'am,

 

Thank you for your answer but it does not address my problem.

 

I am not switching the BlackBerry devices.

 

I would like to move/copy specific contacts from one list to another.

 

When you are working with BES and BIS emails, you will have at least two contact lists, one related to your BES, and one local.

 

I would like to move or duplicate some entries from one list into another.

 

Unfortunately, BB does not allow simple cut/copy -> paste for contact list entries.  I am disappointed, because I can do things like that on any other smart phone (e.g., Nokia, Samsung, LG).

 

Any suggestions how could I do it?

I think there are some misunderstood.

I do not suggest to "Switch" devices.

I suggest the safest way how you can do it.

Connect device, where you have needed Address Book, buckup it (only Address Book)

Then connect second device and just recover Address Book, after from Second device you can delete not needed contact.

 

I have 6 devices for separate issue and in all of them same contact, with small changes

Re: How do I move or copy contact from one contact list to another?

Sir / M'am,

 

I have one device (Bell Canada BB Torch 9800).

 

In the past I used it with BIS, only.

 

Since I activated my device with company's BES, I noticed that my Contacts folder has changed.

 

Now I have two contact lists in that folder: 1) Company Lotus Notes, and 2) Myself@gmail.com.

 

The gmail list is my initial, local contact list.  The Lotus Notes is my LN Address Book.

 

I would like to move some contacts between these two lists.  I also want to copy some contacts from one list to another.

 

Right now I can only create a new entry in either list.
