    Hi Android Noob here my phone is still on the FedEx truck but I'm wondering should I just take it to the Verizon store and let them do it on there machine? What other ways can it be done?

    Install Google Sync on your BB. There are many here that have done it and it works just fine.

    Make sure you have a Gmail account set up.

    bluetooth?
    I'm not sure the storm has it (probably does though) but that's how I always move my contacts

    I took mine into the store and had them do it. They had a few problems with the machine so to make things easier I would do the following before you go to the store.
    1. Power off your phone
    2. Insert the micro SD card
    3. Power it up
    4. format the new SD card

    They finally got my contacts to transfer after the SD card was formatted... BTW don't let them try to charge you for this service (they told me its $20 to transfer contacts at my local store) I told them that their backup software doesn't install on the BB Storm so this is the only way to transfer and they need to wave the charge.

    If you use Gmail it's very simple. Download Google Sync (http://www.google.com/mobile/sync/) on your Storm, which will sync your phone contacts to your Gmail account. Then when you get your Incredible and set up your Gmail account, make sure the option to sync contacts is checked, voila!

    I did this, and it worked for me too.

    I didn't have contacts in my outlook already, so I just changed the sync option in BB Desktop Messenger to transfer my contacts from phone to pc. Then, once they populated in my Outlook > Contacts, I used the export function from the File menu, eliminated all the useless fields, and saved it as a .CSV file.

    Then, go into gmail, click on Contacts, then Import, and chose the CSV file i just saved.

    I'm sure there's probably an easier way than this, but it wasn't that hard and got me what I needed without additional software in less than 10 minutes.

    Yea, Google Sync is much easier. It syncs your contacts straight to Gmail. No need to export/import.

    If I can make a suggestion: Read through User Guide that is stickied at the top of the forums.

    There's also a simulator on the VZW site:
