Default Contacts: iPhone -> PC -> Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

Friend of mine took his contacts from his iPhone 3G (not S, but with upgraded OS) and imported them to Windows Contacts on a PC with Vista. Now he wants to take those same contacts and import them to his Blackberry 9700 for work. He needs it ASAP but I don't know anything about how these systems opporate together. Anyone got any bright ideas?

Feel free to add for more info, but I tried to add as many of the basics from the get-go...

The BB doesn't sync with Windows contacts as far as I know. If he can move them to Outlook, then that is an easy sync with the BB using DM.

Another option would be to sync Windows contacts with Google Contacts and then use Google Contact sync on the BB.

Now if the BB is connected to BES, that could be another issue all together.

Dubdub is correct.

Both the iPhone and the BlackBerry platforms will sync with MS Outlook and with Google Contacts. To move stuff from the iPhone to a BlackBerry (or vice-versa), you must find a common denominator.
