Default From iPhone to BB Bold

Please Login to Remove!

Hey

I currently have an iPhone but this one will be replaced by a BB Bold next week. However I'm facing a problem with my contacts. I have no idea how to back them up now so I'll be able to load them on my BB.

Anyone else experienced this problem and, most importantly, how did you fix it?

Thanks in advance

I just found out that PocketMac syncs with the address book so that solves the problem as all my contacts from my iPhone are stored in my Mac's address book.

Good luck with that. Blackberrys and Macs don't really play well together as you will soon find out.

BBs are quite lacking in Mac support. For starters, if you need to upgrade your OS, you'll need to find a Windows machine.

Also Pocket Mac and Missing Sync give a lackluster performance when it comes to syncing, especially with BB running OS 4.5 or greater.

I have a Windows machine in the office so no problem there. However, all my business associated documents, mails, ... arrive on my Mac.

Yes, I found some information by reading some topics around this forum. Just now I got advised to use Mailstreet and sync wireless. That should solve a lot of problems.
