Is it possible to use BlackBerry ID on 8520?

Hi there.

Is there any way for BB 8520 (gemini) to transfer BBM contacts via BBM ID?

Not by backup and restore from BB desktop software (using desktop software will make all bbm contacts to be re-invited and need to accepted again to be in contacts).
I think I need to upgrade my BBM (currently v 5.0.1) to BBM 7. Is it compatible with my OS (BB OS 5)? And where can I get BBM 7 for my device?

Thank you

Yes, you can update your BBM. Use BBWorld to update BBM to the latest. It will then transfer your contacts to your BBID.
