Default Syncing contacts?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys... I just unlocked my Blackberry Storm 9530 that was for Verizon but I now use it on Tmobile. My next step is getting my contacts on there. My computer is a mac and I have my contacts saved on my address book on my mac. I also have the contacts saved on my Yahoo Mail Contacts so they are there too. Yahoo also lets you export your contacts. My question is what is the easiest way to transfer my contacts to the Storm? I really only want the contacts and not the calender or anything like that. Anyone have any simple suggestions? Thanks.

Well if you can setup a google email account and download the contacts to google and then go on your storm and look for google mobile sync. That will let you sync contacts and calender . also when you add contacts to. Your cell you can sync it. So you will have an up to date list

Wait does this require me having internet on my BB? Cause I have an unlocked BB storm through Tmobile and do not have internet so if google sync needs me to have it I don't. I do however have a cord that will connect my BB to my computer. Does anyone know a way to do it like that?

yahoo is a sync-able program with desktop manager for contacts.
at least in the windows version it is.
it should be the same with the mac version.
just connect via cable open up desktop manager, go to syncronise (where ever that might be) and see if it will allow you to select yahoo for contacts.

When I open up the desktop manager on my mac under Information I go to the Contacts tab. I don't see anything there... nothing at all. What should I do? I have my contacts on my address book, google mail, and yahoo but i cant get them to my damn blackberry lol.

this is just my idea, but perhaps when clicking on contacts, it shows whats on the BB.
which is nothing.
Is there anyway a syncronise tab or button?

better yet, there must be a help button somewhere.
