Question Upgrage from 7100i to Pearl

Please Login to Remove!

I just went from a Blackberry 7100i w/ nextel to a Pearl from T-mobile. I would like to know if it is possible to move all my contacts from one to the other either via bluetooth or blackberry desktop. I currently have the version that came with my 7100i and have not installed the new on for the pearl as of yet.
Is there somone who can help me b/c BB instructions tell you nothing.
Thank you

Download and install the latest version of the Desktop Manager program from the BlackBerry support web site - it is version 4.2, SP1.

It contains a Switch Device Wizard so you can easily move from one device (the 7100) to the Pearl. Piece of cake.

Welcome, by the way!

Welcome, fellow Nextel escapee/convert!!!

You will notice a world of difference with the Pearl and T-Mobile in both reception and customer service!! They are awesome!!!

I too switched from the 7100i to a Pearl - but I 'defected' over to Rogers from Telus.

Been using the Pearl for the past 2 months (received a loaner peal from my Rogers Rep.) and loved it! I couldnt go back to the 7100i. Ive now got my very own pearl - gave the loaner one back - and its been great, love the thing! the size, camera.. everything about it! best BB Ive had!

Had the 7105t for about 2 years and loved it. Went from the 8703e to the 8100. Love the 7105t as my first BB but the 8100 is so feature rich I couldn't go back.
