Default Contacts from Nextel i930 to 8700g

Please Login to Remove!

just picked up an 8700g from T-Mobile for data and messaging only. I have my voice service with Nextel (I930). How do I get my contacts from my I930 to my 8700? I only have outlook express 6 on my computer.

there are a few ways you can do it here is one way just reverse it HERE YOU GO PEOPLE

Address Book allows you to import data from a Blackberry once it's been converted to a text(txt) file.


Available space: 600 total entries
Usage statistics: Total entries used - 0 of 600
Extended entries used - 0 of 200


Follow the procedure below to create the export file.


Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
Double click on the Intellisync icon to open.
Click the Configure PIM button. The Handheld Configuration window will open.
Highlight the Address Book application from the list in the left window and Click the Choose button.
From the Available Translators list select ASCII Importer/Exporter.
Select the Export radio button under Operation options.
Enter a Filename for the new file that will be created. Ensure that the ".txt" extension remains on the filename.
Click Browse to identify a location in which to save the file.
Click OK on the Choose Translator window.
On the Handheld Configuration window select the Configure dropdown and choose Advanced Settings.
Click Field Mappings.
Scroll to the bottom of the field list so that the Direct Connect field is visible under the Handheld column.
In the right hand column drag the User Defined 4 export field down to be across from Direct Connect. There should be a two-way arrow between Direct Connect and User Defined 4. This denotes that data in the export file under the User Defined 4 heading will be imported as the Direct Connect number.
Click OK on the Field Mappings for Address Book window.
Click OK on the Advanced Settings for Address Book window.
Click OK on the Handheld Configuration window.
Click Synchronize now on the Intellisync window.
Close the Intellisync window
Click the Browse button to find the newly created text file. It will appear in the field to the left of the Browse button.

and the other way would be to sync the I930 to your outlook and then sync the BB to your outlook and all contast will copy over

I would rather go the outlook sync route. My problem is I can't get outlook express 6 to read the contacts from my i930. How can I fix this?
