Copy contacts from BB phone to Playbook

Did I read somewhere that you cannot copy your contacts from the phone to the playbook.  Surely you are not expected to re-type all of your contacts?

Re: Copy contacts from BB phone to Playbook

there is no link from phone to playbook to do that.

 

You can use a cloud service like gmail or hotmail to sync

Re: Copy contacts from BB phone to Playbook

This is not very clear. Can someone actually provide instructions?

Re: Copy contacts from BB phone to Playbook

Doesn't this sound a bit INsecure to you?  Isn't Security a key to the Blackberry platform ?!?

You honestly expect one to put all that SPI up onto something as notoriously INSECURE as hotmail/gmail ?

Surely you would think there would be a tool to do this.
