Default New BB problem

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
I need some help please as I have been searching the net for a solution but no luck. I have tried various methods one of which was pim backup software, which backed up the contacts from the WM6 ( as a .pib) but i don't know how to restore it to the BB.

Right, my old phone was an HP Ipaq windows phone which ha WM6 on it and iI need my contacts transfering to the BB 8900. is there a way via a thrid party software to do the transfer or and easier way to do it. i don't even mind a long winded way as log as i get the contacts.
I would really appreciate it if anyone can help as I have over 200 contacts on the phone.

Thank you

Can you export that PIB file to XLS or CSV format, which you can then import into Outlook or via Blackberry Desktop Manager into your BlackBerry?

Can you sync the old iPaq to outlook using activesync and then sync the BB using DM?
