Default Restore from Pearl 8100 to 8830?

Please Login to Remove!

I want to transfer my contacts/address book from 8100 (T-Mobile) to 8830 (Verizon).

I tried to use the Blackberry Manager to backup the 8100 and restore to the 8830 and select only the address book but the arrow is grayed out and not selectable when I highlight address book.

Do I just have to do a full restore?

You could do the full restore, with little problems.

I would recommend that you use the Switch Device Wizard. It should work flawlessly, and if you have errors or it stops without finishing, just do it again. I had to 3-4 times once.

Good luck, and welcome to the BBForums.
