    The following will explain how to get your contacts from your old Motorola phone to your new Motorola Droid. This will work if you have service on your Motorola phone still or not.

    If you have previously backed up your phone using Verizon Backup Assistant, see these instructions: http://cellphoneforums.net/motorola-...ola-droid.html


    Step 1
    • Download Bitpim: Welcome to BitPim
    • Connect your phone to you computer using a USB data cable (or bluetooth) (make sure you have the proper drivers installed for you phone)
    • In BitPim go to Edit > Detect Phone - if BitPim can't detect your phone check to make sure BitPim can 'see' the phone - Select Settings and Browse to see what is showing up on the com ports - if your phone isn't showing up go to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager > Ports and see if there is an error. If there is you don't have the correct drivers installed.
    • Once you get your phone detected in BitPim go to Data > Get Phone Data
    • Select the data you want to import - in this case the phonebook
    • You should see data populate the PhoneBook area
    • Go to File > Export > vCards - save the file to somewhere known (like your desktop)

    Step 2
    • Log Into your Gmail account
    • Click Contacts in the left menu
    • Click Import in the top right
    • Choose file and select the vcard file you just saved (add them to a group if you want)
    • Click Import
    • Your contacts will be imported into your Gmail account

    Step 3
    • On your Droid make sure you have connected your Gmail account
    • Go to contacts > Menu > Accounts
    • Select your Gmail account > Menu > Sync Now
    • Your new contacts will be imported - Any duplicates should be merged.

    Re: Contacts from old Motorola phone to new Motorola Droid

    Tavenger5 I was not able to get BitPim to recognize my V9 or even detect it. Any other ideas that might work?

    TIA

    BitPim does not support the V9.... Just have VZW do it for you...

    Thanks will do. When I purchased the Droid I didn't have my V9 with me. I'll just have to go back and let them do it I hope.

    Thanks to all for trying.

    Ah sorry about that. I think you would need to use Motorola phone tools if for some reason you can't get Verizon to transfer them for you.

    Re: Contacts from old Motorola phone to new Motorola Droid

    Got my contacts onto my Droid a few days ago. My gmail took them from my outlook and downloaded or is it uploaded them to my Droid.

    Thanks to all for your help.
