Default Migrating Contacts

Please Login to Remove!

I'm trying to migrate contacts from a verizon Samsung u740 to a Storm. I used the back up assistant application on the 740, but cannot access it with the Storm.

Anyone solve this issue?

Log into the Backup Assistant web page. View your entire contact list (print view).. drag the mouse to select all.. Copy to the clip board.

Open up Excel, past in from clip board. Edit and clean it up (remove the little icon symbols)... save as a .CSV and import into Outlook.


Use Bitpim to pull your contacts in, then export to file.. and import into Outlook.

Once in outlook, sync to Blackberry via desktop manager.
