Default Transfering contacts from old pearl to new pearl

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all

So I just got my replacment pearl after my first one stopped charging.
Is there a way to get my contacts off of my old adresse book and put them into my new phone without copying them all manually?

I am a mac user and I dont have a usb cable or anything like that.

Thanks,
Taylor

Taylor, the Switch Device Wizard work great, if you were on a MAC.

You should use PocketMac or sync your contacts to Entourage or another file on your PC (ascii, or excel?) and then sync again to your new BB.

Or, backup the old one, and restore the address book to the new one.

You can't do it wirelessly.

Can't you send it over Bluetooth. There's an option in Bluetooth to transfer address book. What's with that then?

Some call it "secure" rather than "stubborn".

You can't send contacts via bluetooth. Sorry. It's easy with a PC. The Mac makes it more difficult.
