Default moving contacts BIS phone to BES phone

Please Login to Remove!

I am not a BES admin, but I manage 25 users who are on a BES server. We are not allowed to do any desktop manger hookups with our BES blackerrys (Military). Bluetooth is disabled.

I have a user who wants to migrate all his contacts from his personal Verizon BB to his Issued BES BB.

Do anyone have a quick and easy, down and dirty for this?

Personal Phone 8330
Issued BES phone 9650

Thanks!

If not too many, send them one by one as a vcard to his new email address

Thanks Knotty,

Its a lot, probably over 100.

Does BB do VCards? Or are you refering to doing it from Outlook? Users personal phone isn't tied into any computers with outlook. Although I suppose I could set that phone to sync with Outlook on a personal computer.

BB does a vcf attachments and if the contacts are that important, a few hundred click will be worth it.

maybe can do gmail contact sync, but I never use gmail contacts.

or for a nice trick, wipe the new phone from BES if it has been activated on BES
let user do a device switch at home on his PC and instruct to only add in contacts or it will be wiped
activate after and his contacts will be there.
