How do I transfer my phone book from a Verizon Razr V3m to my new BB Curve 8310? Verizon doesnt use a sim card unfortunately.

Hi...

I use a sim card reader and transfer from sim to sim.
SIM card reader - manage cell phone with SIM reader
Your provider can do this but it will cost you a visit to the store.

go into a local Corporate ATT store they should be able to transfer the numbers.

Tell them that the 8300 software on the machine WILL work for the 8310.

You could always use Motorola Phone Tools. Get the numbers out and then use DM to put them on the berry.
I can't link you to the torrent or fileshare (for obvious reasons) but google works wonders.


Cheers!

Can the Moto sync with Outlook? For moving from one platform to another, going through Outlook is often the best method. It usually preserves formatting as well, so work numbers don't suddenly appear as home numbers, etc.

Dont worry I know where to find it. I had the latest version of MPT and it got the numbers for me off the Razr, but they were in a weird format and I could pick the format so the BB didnt recognize them. I had to manually enter each number 1 by 1.

Is there a way to just copy the SIM contacts with DM? I want to use my BB as a SIM reader. I don't want to mix my BB contacts with the SIM contacts.
