My BB 8800 had the option to "transfer address book" when paired to certain devices incl. my old Apple iMac G4 800 as well as my Nokia 8800.
I no longer have either the iMac or the Nokia. Today I paired the BB800 with a Macbook Pro 15" running Leopard 10.5.5. Initially the "transfer address book" option was there but it did not seem to work. I deleted the pairing and tried again but now the option itself has disappeared. Innumerable re-pairing attempts, rebooting Mac and BB all to no avail.
I need to transfer the address book from the BB8800 to my new BB9000 Bold. It appears impossible to transfer between the two Blackberrys so I though I would do a BB800 -> Mac -> BB9000 transfer.
