Many of us have at one point in time used Blackberry devices either at work or personally. Truth is we all own different devices for different purposes.
I for one having used a blackberry phone soon found out I could do more with the Android. So I purchased a new Android device and found myself at the point that I needed to move my contacts from the Blackberry to the new Android device. Did a few searches for how to migrate contacts from BB to Android. Then I got stuck at the point after transferring my contacts where the Android phone kept reporting "Couldn't import vcard". At this point I took another approach that got all my contacts into my new Android device in less than a minute.
How did I do it?
Below are the steps you need to take to complete the much needed contacts migration from BB to Android. This may end up being useful for other devices other than android and provides a super safe solution to your contacts problem.
- Go to the Blackberry network setting and Enable blue tooth.
- Pair your Blackberry device with your phone or PC (what matters is being logged into with GMail in a browser)
- Once pairing is complete, click your newly paired device, then press the BB menu button.
- From the menu select "Transfer Contacts"
- You will then see a notification stating how many contacts are being processed.
- Receive the VCard file (Phonebook.vcf) and save it - this file contains all your contacts.
- Now the final step is for you to log into the GMail account that your Android phone is synced with using any browser.
- Next, go to this address: http://www.google.com/contacts.
- You will see a menu on the left with a link to "import contacts".
- Once the file upload window prompt appears, select the .vcf file you received previously and upload.
That's all it takes to import your contacts to your new Android phone.
