    I'm sure there are some of you that just purchased a Droid and want to get your contacts off of your BlackBerry (old Storm anyone?) The below is a pain free way to do it:

    • This will be a lot easier if you sync your BlackBerry with gmail BEFORE activating your Droid
    • Download this Google app to sync your BlackBerry with Gmail: Google Sync on your mobile phone
    • Check your Gmail account to make sure everything is loaded into it.
    • Activate your Droid
    • Hook up your gmail account - make sure sync is set to on
    • All done - your contacts are now on your new Droid


    The slightly longer way if you have already disconnected service:

    If you sync you phone using BlackBerry Desktop Manager your contacts will be in Outlook, so you can follow the directions here: Export Contacts from Outlook and Import to Motorola Droid (Android 2.0)

    Thanks for the information. It was highly useful. Its great to have a site like this that has correct information when the carrier who sells the phone sends incorrect information because they really have no clue about the new devices.

    You can just turn wifi on a blackberry and sync up with gmail.

    Re: Transfer your contacts from your BlackBerry to Droid

    My blackberry is broken and I can no longer sync from actual phone to outlook, though I did backup everything on my computer through desktop manager. I am now switching to a droid. Is there a way from me to transfer contacts to outlook through desktop manager only (no phone)?
