    How can i send all the contacts saved into my old BlackBerry into my Gmail account so that my new Android Phone can retrieve them?


    HI EVERYBODY,
    i recently Purchased a Samsung i9000 Galaxy S and i am getting ready to transfer everything to it from my old BlackBerry 8800... how should i do that?

    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.

    Download Google sync to your bb then sync to your Google account.
