Smile Friends contact list help

Please Login to Remove!

For some reason, all of my BBM contacts and my address book were deleted. If I can, I want to take a friend's contacts and address book and upload them onto my phone. What is the best way to do this? I have the blackberry desktop manager and just registered with myverizon. Thank you for your help!!

Sync his BB contacts to Outlook through Desktop Manager, then sync yours.

That would be best. Although you might be able to use just Desktop Manager to backup his contacts list and then restore yours from that backup. I never tried that, but it could work without the need for Outlook.

In case anyone is interested, this is how i solved the problem step by step. I wanted to synch my friend's contacts to my phone.

I have the new tour, and a mac computer.

1. Download the desktop manager.

2. Plug in your FRIENDS phone.

3. click Back Up (you can either backup the entire phone, or just the address book )

4. Plug in YOUR phone

5. Hit RESTORE, then select the address book from your friend's phone

6. say skoooooooooo
