    Hello,

    I've been trying to transfer my contacts from an old blackberry (Storm 9530) to the Galaxy S3 for a couple of days now with no luck! Transfer canceled is what I get every time I use Kies! Any help will be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    The best way would be to export your contacts as a CSV file. Then you can take that file on import it to GMail via the website.

    It's been a few years since I had my Storm. I believe there was a way to go into the contacts there and export the contacts as a CSV file. This file will contain all your contact information. It should save to the SD card. You will need a PC with a card reader. If you do not have one you can email yourself the CSV file and save the file to your PC. Then, go to a PC and log into your GMail account using the same email and password you used for your phone. Once in there you can import the CSV file into your GMail account. Then on your Android phone go into Accounts, choose your Google account, and make sure Sync Contacts is checked. The next time your phone syncs the contacts all the information you imported will show up on your phone. This is how I did it when I transferred from BlackBerry to Android.

    Moving from BlackBerry to Android is an easy process, too.
    1. Open Google Sync on your BlackBerry.
    2. Choose “Sync Now” to make sure the most current contact information is added to your Google account.
    3. Open the “Accounts & Sync” app on your Android phone from the gear icon.
    4. Touch “Google.” Touch to add a checkmark to “Sync Contacts.”
    5. Touch “Sync Now” to sync.
    6. Open your contacts app. Touch the arrow next to “Phonebook” to open the drop down menu. Make sure “Google” is checked. You will now see all your synced contacts.
    Follow this guide if you want to know more.
