See the PIM class in the javadocs.

 

There is a method PIM.fromSerialFormat() that imports the vcard data into the contact object.

Re: Importing .VCF files from sdcard to BlackBerry contacts

Finally, I have successfully move the VCF to my contact in BB.

Here I share my method :

1. backup your old phonecontact so you will get .VCF file (addreess book), copy it to your desktop

2. convert the VCF file to IPD (blackberry contact file) with the ABC (amber converter)

3. run the BB desktop manager

4. restore the BB with file IPD that you have made

5. choose only the address book

 

Hopefully, it can help

Ok, sorry very much! My stupid!!!! It is possible :smileyhappy: With ABC Amber vCard converter.

 

You must open vcf and click blackberry icon logo to export to ipd file. This is great! :smileyhappy:
