    Am I better of bringing my 4S when I receive it to a local Verizon store for them to activate/transfer my #s over from my Blackberry, or am I better off/have to do it from my home on my own?

    If you have the contacts saved via backup assistant I would go download that app from the apple store and then you can transfer your contacts that way. Also you can activate it by plugging it into itunes (atleast thats how i4 was) and then it will activate. You may need to do the *228

    You might investigate the possibility of exporting your Blackberry contacts to Google (assuming you have a Gmail address). If this is possible, then you can automatically get your Google contacts to sync to your iphone through itunes.

    You can activate the phone without any computer need so no need or the store. Contacts just back them up to google. Good luck

    I have a MacBook so what I did was get my google contacts from gmail.com and export them as a CSV file to my desktop. After that I imported the file to my contact book in my MacBook and I synch with my iTunes and there were all there. After that jut back them up to your iCloud and the iPhone will keep everything I. iCloud anyway it will even synch in the background on its own while connected to wifi

    That's exactly how I did it when I switched from blackberry to the iPhone.

    If you've been using the Blackberry Desktop Manager to sync it to your computer, all you'd have to do is set up your iPhone to sync to the same computer via iTunes.

    Or if you've been OTA syncing the BB to gmail, you'd set up the iPhone to do the same.

    Or if you're using an exchange mail server and OTA syncing to that, you'd set your iPhone up to access the same account as the BB and use the Exchange set up on the iPhone, and it will OTA sync as well.
