    I have to move my existing contacts from HTC TyTn Windows 6 powered to HTC Hero on Android.

    Is there a way to export and import without going through google or any other cloud computing servers?

    I have PIMBackup running on HTC TyTn and that exports contacts in a CSV format. I have also located a new application (not tried it yet) will export them in XML format. Will this help with the importing? I am not able to find 1 application that will run on both the phones.

    I have loads of information on my contacts (from addresses to groups to different phone numbers) and I don't want to lose any of this information. :confused:

    Please help.

    Is there no way to do this? No applications on the market currently?

    I have heard people using "cvs format" to export then import via pc for the G1. Maybe you can do that. I don't know for sure how its done. Hopefully someone will post.

    Right, as there has been no other solution, I exported my contacts as CSV and imported them into Google. Now they are sync'ed into my phone.

    Is there a way of copying these contacts to the Phone memory? Is there a application which will copy all Gmail contacts to the Phone?
