BBM - transferring addresses to a new device

I just made the move from a Curve to a Bold 9900.  The conversion has gone extremely smoothly (and I love the new device)with one exception.  I can't figure out a way to get my BBM addresses from the Curve to the Bold. All of the instructions I can find refer to screens that I can't find in the Blackberry Desktop Software.


There must be a simple way to do this transfer (and it needs to be simple because I'm not very tech literate).  Can anyone help?
