Re: Transfer contacts from Samsung mobile to Blackberry Bold-4

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


Assistance here will, naturally, be limited to what you can do to/from the BB. To/From other devices, you'll need to seek assistance elsewhere. Here are some helpful articles:

  • KB03315 How to synchronize organizer data (calendar, task list, memo list, and contact list) using the BlackBerry Desktop Software
  • KB12268Applications supported by BlackBerry Desktop Software for Windows for synchronization
  • KB05421 What is the Switch Device Wizard
  • KB11194 How to import contacts from an already created CSV file to the BlackBerry smartphone
  • KB24488 How to export contacts from a BlackBerry smartphone using BlackBerry Desktop Software 6

So, your answer will depend on what you want to do and what those other devices are capable of. For me, the simplest is to get all of the data into a compatible desktop organizer app (e.g. Outlook) and use that as your "master" source, configuring the BB Desktop Software to synchronize with it to/from the BB and doing whatever else is necessary for those other devices to work with the desktop organizer app.


Good luck!

Re: Transfer contacts from Samsung mobile to Blackberry Bold-4

its very simple to get it done.

You just need to install kies software to your system.

when you run the software, you'll get TOOLS option in the menu bar.

under this option, you'll find option TRANSFER DATA FROM NON-SAMSUNG DEVICE.

when you click over that option, it will install the feature to your syster and rest you will be able to make your necessory action.
