Re: Getting Blackberry Contact list onto my iphone 5

HI and Welcome to the Community!

Quite naturally, BlackBerry provides many tools for getting data INTO a BB, but migrating AWAY from a BB is not something that receives much attention (again, quite naturally...no company invests much in helping customers LEAVE). Rather, the destination system would be more relied upon to provide the complete instructions.

But, you can do I suppose any of the following to at least get partway there:

  1. If your data is synchronized OTA between your BB and some server (e.g., Gmail), then you could perhaps just use that server as your data source on your new device
  2. With the proper version of the BB Desktop Software, you can export your Contacts to a CSV file...but you'd have to separately figure out how to import those to your new device
  3. If you are already, via USB or BT, synchronizing with a computer-based PIM app (e.g., Outlook), then your data is already there, available to whatever capabilities the new device has

Those are about all that I can think of...let us know which method you'd like to pursue, and we can provide additional details.

 

Good luck!
