I need help COPYING contacts from one BB to another BB.

I just received a company blackberry 8330 (Sprint) after I had purchased an 8320 (AT&T) only a few weeks ago. I plan on keeping my personal phone as an investment and for emergencies, but only want to carry one phone around (that being my company phone).  How do I copy the contacts from my personal phone to my company one? Can I export/import them some how? On the Device Manager software I downloaded for my personal phone there is a way to "transfer" #'s but I don't want to do that b/c I am afraid they will be erased.  I also saw something about synchronizing, but don't know if that will work b/c I'm working with two different blackberries on two different networks. HELP!!! I am pretty electronicly savy but this is totally confusing me!

 

Thanks!

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

Here are the instructions for the Device Switch Wizard:

Oh, and here are BB-to-BB specific instructions:

I've never used it, so I can't answer your specific questions. But, if you search in the BTSC (the system in which the link is from) you might find more information.

Use the Switch Device Wizard in Desktop Manager, before you are activated on the BES.

 

Download Desktop Manager from here:

BES is a corporate BlackBerry Enterprise Service.

 

No, it won't ease any data from your original device.

Re: I need help COPYING contacts from one BB to ANOTHER PHONE

l would suggest either back up assistant or going to the carriers store and havign them do it for you. I beleive sometimes it costs around 10 bucks. Atleast i know thats what they charge me and im on verizon.
