You didn't say what format the other phone will need to import a file into it. That is important.

 

But creating and exporting your BlackBerry contacts to a generic ascii csv file is possible.:

And, importing from a CSV file to your BlackBerry:

Re: How to transfer or copy my complete address book from my BB to another smartphone

Hello,

 

Thank you for your reply. The other smartphone runs Android and I know that it can import files from a vcf format for the contact list. Is there any possibility to convert the BB contact list into a vcf format?

Many thanks.

Eric

One at time, via an email attachment. So that is possible if you don't have many.

 

Otherwise find hour Android will import mass data.
