Default How do I import a .csv file to my BB Curve 8520?

Please Login to Remove!


I have all my contacts in this file from my old phone and I've tried to do it through blackberry desktop manager but it keeps telling me that it is not possible if the wireless data synchronisation is enabled. I'm don't know how to disable this and not sure if it's even a good idea to attempt it - anybody any ideas how I can get round this problem?

Import the contacts to Gmail, Outlook or any other mail platform and then sync your device with that mail platform using Desktop Manager.
