I am given up on using Yahoo Mail after 13 years. I get timed out and have problems login in and some of my messages don't get forwarded to my BlackBerry. So I switched over to using Gmail as my main e-mail provider and it's been working well so far.
I use Outlook calendar on my laptop and sync it with my Torch 9800 using USB connection. If I remove my Yahoo Mail as a default sevice for Calendar, Contact List and Messaing, and select Gmail as my default service how do I convert all my calendar and contact list to the Gmail profile. Actually, not sure if my contact list would be affected since I don't see the association of the contact list to my Yahoo Mail currently. If I delete my Yahoo profile would my events get deleted or would they get transferred to the default calendar profile? Or do I just sync it again with my Outlook and my events will be transferred to the Gmail profile after selecting Gmail as my default service for Calendar and Contact List. I hope I am explaining this correctly. I also have a Facebook calendar profile showing birthday reminders, which I'm trying to remove but that's another problem.
I want to do it right the first time and don't want to accidentally delete my events and contact list.
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thank you so much John_Clark. That worked perfectly. I deleted the service book for Facebook and the birthday eventts moved to my default calendar and with your instructions to type MOVE, my regular events as well as Facebook birthday reminders moved to my Gmail calendar. Now it's easier to delete the birthday reminders on my Outlook instead of deleting one at a time on my Torch.
I see one minor problem. In my Default Services, the Contact List (SYNC) is still set to my Yahoo, which doesn't exist anymore because I removed all my CICAL and CMIME Yahoo service book. I don't see a Yahoo service book for Contact List (SYNC). It's not causing me any problems; I can still sync my contact list between Outlook and my Torch. But I would like to make it a clean change by selecting the Gmail service book if possible for my Contact List. I do not sync my contact list on my Torch and Outlook with my Gmail (e-mail) contact list.
Thanks again. Thanks for the quick reply.

Yep, I removed the service books manually on the Torch and I also went into the Setup Internet e-mail and removed the Yahoo mail account. In addition, after I performed the MOVE feature, the default calendar was removed automatically. I like it. This eliminates any chance of calendar service book conflicting each other.
One minor thing is that I can't access the Setup Internet e-mail on my Torch. I had to login in to the BIS system with Telus (Canada).

When I go to Setup and click on Email Accounts then nothing happens. I followed your instruciton with Registering and it does the same thing.
