Default Transfer phones nos. from Nokia phone

Please Login to Remove!

Hello -

Anyone got any suggestions for transferring phone numbers from my old Nokia handset to my new 7100 (o2)???

I have tried sending a business card as a text message from the Nokia to the Blackberry, but it just gets recognised as a normal sms message.

Any help much appreciated.

When I got my 7100g a couple weeks ago the guy at the Cingular store did it for me.

The took the Nokia and did some sort of "save address book to SIM" thing.

Then he pulled the sim out and put in the 7100g

Then he did some sort of tranferring from the SIM to main memory. This did a sort of file conversion to it.

Here's the catch... it ain't perfect. Let's say on your Nokia, you have a person named Mary with a cell, home, and work number.

When you do the import, you'll have Mary1, Mary2, and Mary3 with one of the numbers... ugh.

What I did was to pull it all down into OUTLOOK on my PC and cleaned up the data there. This is also when I did the "well, I'm never gonn ahear from her agin" thing and deleted a lot. Then I reuploaded it to the 7100g.

I wish I had better step by step insturctions for you. Try calling the Blackberry support poeple at your wireless company

Thanks for that (especially the picture!)

I was hoping to be able to send a business card (vcard) via text and im port it that way, but it doesn't work.
