Default moving contacts on a broken usb

Please Login to Remove!

I filed an exchange with tmobile yesterday only for my already broken usb port to just completly die a few hours later. The port is completely dead and I have no way of charging it or synching over usb. I haven't did a back up in quite some time so I am wondering is it possible to move my contacts over to the replacement when that comes with out using usb? Is it possible maybe to send them through email or bluetooth?

Addresses contacts, one at a time, can be sent via email, MMS and PIN.

You can't send them via Bluetooth. You can send them via pin, however. Also, you can attach more than one at a time to a PIN message. I think what I would try is putting the sim in the old BB, compose a new PIN, add your contacts (you have to add the contact one at a time to the PIN message but you can have many attached to the message. I would probably do no more than 50 to one PIN message) and then send to the new pin. Then take out the sim card, put it in the new BB and then add each address attachment to the new BB. You have to do each address one at a time. This could be a little time consuming but so is typing each contact in again.
