Default New user - converting Nokia contacts?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all.

Just got my first Blackberry - an 8320 Curve

At the moment I've all my contacts on my Nokia 6630 - there are about 500 all of which are stored on the phone NOT the SIM which will only hold 100 contacts :S

Is there an easy way of transferring them? I've backed them up to an nbu file - is there an easy way to convert these to Blackberry format and then sync using the software?

Many thanks,
Ed Ludlow

Yes, the BB desktop manager software will sync your contacts with Outlook.
