transfer contact list

Hi All,

 

I need some assistance which may seem like a very simple task BUT I’m having a very difficult time with it.

I have a Blackberry 8900 and wish to transfer or move somehow my contacts list to my other black berry which is a 9780 Bold… please help

 

How do I do this?

Hello Ravashlin

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Community Forums

 

 

There are many means by which you can achieve the task.If you want to transfer all from  one device to another you can use device switch wizard or if you  want only the Address book or contact list then use BlackBerry  Desktop Software.

 

Connect your device ,open BlackBerry Desktop Software > Backup  > Custom ( Selected Data ) choose to backup only AddressBook .Then connect your second device and just restore ( Selected data ) your Address Book from the backup.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

You probably want to use the Device Switch Wizard...refer:

  • Article ID: KB05421 What is the Switch Device Wizard
  • Article ID: KB23677 How to switch devices using BlackBerry Desktop Software

Good luck!
