How to transfer contacts from Android to Torch

I want to transfer all my contacts from my Dell Streak (Anroid 2.2 Froyo) to my new phone BB Torch 9810.

 

Is there anything to do that?

You can save all your contacts on your sim card. 

 

Then on your BB go to Contacts -> click the menu key and select Copy all to Contacts

You can use the "Switch Device" option on Blackberry device manager. When you click it, it ask you to connect your old phone (in this case your Dell Android) it copies the data mainly your contacts from your Dell and then ask you to connect your BB and choose which data to copy to your Blackberry

[ Edited ]

another way is through outlook.

 

Sync. all your contacts to Microsoft outlook from your Droid.

 

Once done, disconnect your android and connect your BB and open your Blackberry software manager.

 

Then click on "Organizer" on the left side and click "Configure settings". On the "configure settings" click "setup" and choose "address book.

 

A new window opens again and choose "Microsoft Outlook" as your sync. follow the instruction until the setup is completed. The configure setting windows closes automatically. 

 

Then click the "Sync." button on the bottom right hand corner and it will sync. your contact with the contact saved from the Android

 

Hope this will help you

I don't think this will work.  Doesn't 'Switch Device' only work if both devices are Blackberries?
