I have tried all the common ways to transfer contacts from my old BB9900 to Z10, but I still can’t get all my contacts transferred.
I tried using Google sync but it transferred only 308 contacts from almost 600.
Tried using device shift using media card but still no joy.

I have the same issue and am unable to transfer my contacts. I tried through backup through memory card as well and that didnt work either.
Also, google synch didnt work for me for some reason.
Blackberry, please help...

Just curious, when you back up your device to your memory card... I doesn't format it or wipe any of the data (pictures/videos/docs/music) that's already on it does it ?

well i figured it out... I synced all my contacts with google (i was doing this all allong). After setting up all my accounts, i did a battery pull and all my contacts came on. I guess this is the only way to do it.
Link software isnt doing it. even though it says it will...
It is kind of dissapointing since I always thought that BBRY was amazing in transfering data from device to device...
I hope this can help someone.
