My Blackberry 8120 just came in the mail, now I am at a point where I need to transfer all of my contacts from my old cell (Motorola Razr) which I have had for 3 years.
Note: I am using T-Mobile prepaid service.
Thanks to all, Lilbreez

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:
2) RIM provides a Device Switch Wizard to migrate from another SmartPhone to a BB...but only for compatible devices. See this KB:
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:
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:
Good luck and let us know!

Thank you for your input. After reading your message. I tried using the csv system. The name and phone number did transfer, but not the other information like address'.
I did check and did update the software that came on the disk. After running that software, only the name and numbers transferred, leaving out the other information.
I will continue trying. However, I have started re-entering the other information stored in my old phone.
Once again, Thank-You
