    Hi guys new to the forum. I have a BB 8900 and my friend is giving me his iPhone 3G to try out to see if i will like the iPhone platform. Anyways besides manually transfering them is there a program that will do this for me or do I have to go to a dreaded AT&T store? Thanks in advance!

    If you sync all of the contacts on your BB to Outlook on windows, then when you plug the iphone in, you can sync them from outlook to the iphone using itunes.

    this is another way to do it as well

    Set Up Your Apple Device for Google Sync : Mail, Calendar, & Contacts - Google Mobile Help

    also, keep in mind that the 3G experience is totally different than the 3GS or iP4. i am saying this because if you end up not liking it just remember it does get better, for sure

    Thanks Blink and jdavis530! With the 3g is there anything I should do to make it better? Like OS upgrade? I know absolutely nothing about iPhones. I'm a real newb.

    Cool, thanks for that link. I'm Android user and I'm considering buying an iPhone if they come to Verizon and I was just wondering how I'd sync all my contact from the cloud to the phone.

    Android to iPhone is simple since Android sets you up on Google to start with. Personally, I can't imagine using anything other than Google for exchange sync!

    Yeah everything looks like it'll be any easy switch. If the VZW iPhone is LTE capable it's a sealed deal.

    Just keep in mind that it will be slower especially if it has a newer firmware. I personally like the 3G on the 3.x firmware so if you're lucky to get a 3G witht the older firmware don't upgrade. Just keep in mind the newer firmware has alot of great features like folders, multi-tasking, and others but it's a better experience on the higher models of iPhone.

    If you have an Apple Store near you, they have a "black box" that will transfer your contacts from your BB to the iPhone no problem.

    No charge as far as I know. I did it twice and it was free both times.
