just install blackberry desktop manager onto a PC and do a backup feature. then plug the new bberry into that computer and do a restore onto it.

Exactly. This way you back up the entire content of your BlackBerry and not just the address book.

But... if you ever need to use a phone that's not a BB, your phone numbers will not be on the SIM card. When you create a new address book entry on the BB, it adds it to the device, not the SIM. You have to swap each address to your SIM one at a time. Open the contact you want to swap, click the thumbwheel, then select copy to SIM.
