Transferring my old contacts into the Bold 9000 via a word doc

Hi ,

Love the forum.

I have all my phone book on my Motorola Razr. I want to transfer these to the Newly aqcuired B. Bold 9000. Somehow, the old sim card does not let the transfer happen at the AT&T store.


Now, I have a Word.doc and and Excel sheet on my PC that has my contacts too. Is there any way I can transfer these word or excel contacts to the new Bold so I do not have to hand-type all my contacts into the new Bold?


If not, then, Can I try these with Gmail.contacts or Yahoo.mail?


Which menus I should be using via the BB9000 desktop? Please advice.


I truly appreciate any sugesstions.

thank you

When you put the sim card into the blackberry, go to contacts > press the menu button > go to sim phone book > wait until ur contacts load > then press menu button > then select copy all to contacts.


See how u go with that.

If your issue is resolved, put a checkmark in the green box that contains the resolution.
If it was just/or also really helpful - Give it a Kudos.. Go on Mate.. Help the rest of the clueless blackberry user world find their answer too..

You can use the Motorola Phone tools to do it.

when you bought your Motorola Phone, in the box there are a cd with Motorola Phone tools, you can use this program to export the contacts to Outlook, and after this you can synch the blackberry device with Outlook. 

If I help you with any inquire, thank you for click kudos in my post.
