trying to move my contacts from old BB8520 to new BB9360

[ Edited ]

good day to the community, I am trying to move my entire contacts list from old business BB to new BB9360 using my home IMac as a pivot. I have downloaded the program for mac and succesfully moved my contact list there, but now when I connect my new 9360 after succesfully prompting for BB password it says "cannot connect IMac to the BB". if I look at the BB Desktop Software, I only see on the top left the BB 8520 icon, so basically I guess it is not ready to dialogue with the new device, as if the system did not acklowledge that there is a new device which I am trying to connect. I tried to dowload again the BB Desktop Software, it does not change.

any suggestion other then manually re-inserting over 1k contacts? Smiley Frustrated

Hi alberto66,

 

Welcome to the support community!

The following KB article may help with getting your BlackBerry smartphone connected with your Mac.
