    Does anyone know the quickest way to move contacts from a BB 8800 over to a iphone 3G?

    I would put them all on your sim card and then just import them to your iphone.


    Did you finally get a iphone?

    I would sync with your computer using your blackberry. Then sync the iphone.

    How do I go about doing that?

    YES!! Just picked it up!! So pumped. The process was miserable, I think the guy working behind the counter was very very new because it did not go smoothly at all. Whatever though, I have it!

    NellyB,

    Congrats on finally getting your Iphone! First you have to sign up with Itunes. Once you do that you can choose to sync your contacts, calendars, photos, videos, music, etc. I don't know if the process differs much with a pc. I'm on a MAC . Or as said above, if you use the same SIM card there is an option in your Iphone settings to import SIM contacts.

    Good luck!!

    Do you have outlook or outlook express on your computer? That's how I moved mine from my BlackBerry to my iPhone, it was the easiest way for me. Just set iTunes to use outlook for contacts (and Calendar if you use it) like Txdogs explained. It is the same with a PC, just select what you want iTunes to sync to.

    If you don't have outlook, you can set your BlackBerry to sync contacts with Yahoo through the BlackBerry Desktop Manager, and then after you have done the sync, set iTunes to sync contacts with Yahoo. That should get them all over to your iPhone but I have never tried it, so I not sure exactly how it works.

    Yeah, I just synced my BB with outlook and then had the iphone sync with outlook. Pretty easy.
