Default Transferring phone book from Nokia

Please Login to Remove!

I purchased a 8700c from Cingular. When they set it up the guy at the store did a few things and off to his next sale. My Numbers are in the phone, I have to click on address book then click on one of the contacts, the menu 2 links down says from sim card. Is there a way I can create a phone book by transfering these so I don't have to click all the way in to get them. I have looked all over there site and I can't seem to figure it out.

I only need the BB for getting email that Battery back ups and Tape back up's send me when there is failure. I have it worked into my Exchange server and there's no problems with that. But I am more keen on getting the phone working so I don't need to click all the way in.

You can either save all the contacts from your Nokia phone onto the sim card then load it from the sim card onto your BlackBerry, or if you have a data cable for your Nokia and the Nokia PC Suite software then you can always move your contacts into Outlook or Outlook express then sync your BlackBerry to your computer.

I'd recommend that you transfer your contacts via the Nokia PC suite to your outlook express and then sync with your BB. That'll make sure that you have a backup if anything may go wrong with the SIM card. I did that when I got my BB and discarded the Nokia Communicator.
I love my BlackBerry/CrackBerry and will fight anyone who says different.
