I just switched to using a blackberry from a razr. They told me at alltel that they could not transfer my contacts form the razr to my BB. There has to be a way. Please help me

I haven't been able to figure out a way to do it. My wife has a RAZR and when I try to transfer contacts I get something to the effect of the service is not supported. What you could do is synch your contacts to Outlook (using Motorola Mobile Phone Tools) and then synch Outlook to the BlackBerry.

Yes, I just helped a friend who had a Moto phone move his contacts to Outlook with the Phone Tools and it worked pretty well.

This person is still amazed at what his Blackberry can do!

Install the Blackberry Desktop Manager and set up the SYNC with Outlook. It is quick and fast. If you do not have the software, you can download off the RIM site

Do as these guys stated... saving your SIM will only save ONE number per contact, and no email addresses etc.

Who is service provider for your BB? If att go into store they have a machine that can transfer the numbers

Even if you aren't ask nicely they may do it
