Hi,

 

 

You will have to sync your nokia to your outlook express first and then sync your outlook to your blackberry9700. The may help you to resolve the calander and contacts issue. I m not too sure about the rest of the things.

The BlackBerry desktop manager has an option to move from a non-BlackBerry device to a BlackBerry. I have not personally used it, but I would look into what options are available there.

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

A few things to discuss...so bear with me...

 

1) Contrary to how others do things, RIM does not provide a desktop PIM. Others force you to use their PIM and only their PIM. RIM provides a conduit software that functions as a bridge between your chosen PIM and the BB. See this KB for compatible PIM's:

  • KB12268 Applications supported by BlackBerry Desktop Manager for synchronization

 

2) RIM provides a Device Switch Wizard to migrate from another SmartPhone to a BB...but only for compatible devices. See this KB:

  • KB05459 How to use the Switch Device Wizard to switch from another smartphone to a BlackBerry smartphone

 

3) If your old device is not compatible with the wizard, then RIM further provides the ability to import from ASCII and CSV files. See this KB:

  • KB04312 Create and synchronize with an ASCII export file
    • KB11194 How to import contacts from an CSV file to the BlackBerry device
  • Sorry, but RIM provides no assistance on how to get your data out of your old device and into the ASCII or CSV format...that's a function of your old device.

 

So, your choice is, IMO, to keep using a desktop PIM to manage your data (and you should, IMO)...then choose a compatible PIM (from above). Then, get your data out of your old device and into the desktop PIM. Then, configure the BB to sync with the PIM:

  • KB17022 How to configure organizer applications for synchronization using BlackBerry Desktop Manager

 

Good luck and let us know!

if you have a bunch of .vcf files, which all phones will let you create . . . just open the windows 7 contacts folder (you can find it inside your Win7 PC’s default Documents folder, or it’s at C:\\users\you\documents\contacts) and on the top bar, as shown in the screen cap, you will find an ‘import’ link. Click on that and you will be asked to select from various contacts file formats. Select vcf files and . . . VOILA . . . now you CAN select multiple files this time (which is amazingly cool). When selecting the vcf files just press ctrl A which will select them all and click ‘open’. This will import all the vcf files into the windows 7 contacts folder in the .contact format in seconds and then you just go ahead and sync the contacts from the blackberry desktop manager and all your contacts will get into your new blackberry contacts within seconds. You’re done.
