Default Recovering 8330 contacts and email

Please Login to Remove!

I'm retiring my BB 8330 in 2 weeks for a VZW DROID X. I've backed up all email and contact files from my 8330 into the BB Desktop Manager. Can I recover / view those backed up files so that I can manually transfer the records into the DROID? I hope the records and email is not so proprietary that I will be unable to access the files when my 8330 goes offline. Thank you Blackberrys!

Are you using anything like Outlook or Google for your contact files? BB desktop manager in itself doesn't keep the files for you. It's more of a conduit between your device and other software (Outlook being one of the more popular ones).

You should be able to sync contacts and calendar info is you use Google Contacts and Calendar. I do not know if the Moto Droids sync to Outlook, I know the original Droid did not. Perhaps MissingLink has a solution that will do that.

I do not know of a way to get your email to move over, other than resending them to yourself.

I recall uploading contacts to my Outlook 2000 but now have Outlook 2007. How would I upload the contacts to Google, in which I have two accounts?

Can I simply "read" the prior BB acquired emails without transferring them to the DROID X?

Danke.
