Contact Transfer



My friend had a 9300 and it got stolen. So  I offered to lend my spare 8520. But now we want to transfer her contacts onto my already used blackberry. Any help?

Re: Contact Transfer

Hi Chantie


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums


First perform a Security wipe on your old 8520 before lending it to your friend , because it is important before changing ownership :


KB28225 : BlackBerry smartphone must be security wiped before transferring ownership


If you friend already have a backup of his / her lost device then thos data can be restored to your old 8520, for help refer to this KB Article :

Good luck.
