Hello all, I'm very new here and have just got my first BB today. I have a Torch 9800 I must say it looks and feels very impressive so far.
I need some help please.
My previous fone was a SE Satio and I have all my contacts backed up in PC suite however I didn't have any saved to my Sim Card and my Satio is broken and awaiting repair. Is there anywayI can get my contacts from PC Suite if only to read them and put them in manually to my torch?
I would be very grateful as it could be a while until i can get my Satio back from repair, so that I may be able to get some contacts on to my Sim card.

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!
To start, you need the RIM Desktop Software:
If you can get your data out of PC Suite, RIM provides the ability to import (into the BB) from ASCII and CSV files. See these KBs:
But, what I actually suggest you do is to use a desktop organizer...choose one from this list of those that are compatible:
Then, get your data out of PC Suite and into the new desktop Oranizer and configure the BB to sync with the PIM:
Good luck and let us know!

Many thanks for your time in replying to my problem.

I've no idea...as I said, you need to figure out how to use PC Suite to get the data into a format that the RIM software can read (CSV or ASCII). You'd need to be asking that question at some PC Suite support site.
