I don't recall if this will work with a Nokia... where are the contacts, on your SIM card or in an address book?

 

You can try Desktop Manager > Switch Device Wizard. I just don't recall if that works with a Nokia...

 

Otherwise you'll need to ask Nokia HOW to export those contacts to something like an Excel sheet or to Outlook, which you can then very easily import or sync to the BlackBerry.

 


Get the other question answered first, then we'll help out.

Sure it will... once you get Nokia contacts in a usable format, you'll certainly need Desktop Manager.

Well, you can import your Excel spreadsheet to Outlook.

 

Then you use Desktop Manager to sync your Outlook to the BlackBerry.

Download Desktop Manager from here:
