Is your data in Outlook or BB Desktop?

I guess if it's not Outlook, I'm not sure, so here it is for Outlook:

1. In outlook, File > import and export > export to a file > Comma Separated Values (DOS) > Pick a file name.

2. Login to gmail > Contacts > more actions pulldown > Import > Choose File you just made.

3. Here's the best part: if your phone is already sync'ed to your google account, your contacts will populate automatically. I did 1 and 2, then picked up my phone with a, "Now, how do I get this onto my phone? Oh, it's already there."

The process is virtually identical for the calendar.
