    First off thanks for your time and effort.
    My BlackBerry Curve went to the great cellphone store in the sky a couple of weeks ago. Luckily I backed my phone contacts up with BlackBerry desktop manager 5.0. However, I'm trying to sync these contacts to gmail, and no dice. Nada, Nothing, Zip. I just bought a Google Nexus 4, and would love to have my old contacts there.

    Logging into BlackBerry dm, it tells me to connect my device for every single category (applications, organizer, files). This is quite impossible as my device is dead.

    So am I hooped? Or is there a magical way around this?
