What are the requirements to copy contacts?

  1. Blackberry Desktop Manager (You can get it for free from Blackberry official website).
  2. MagicBerry for Blackberry (A tool which converts file format from .bbb to .csv).

The Procedure:

  1. Connect your Blackberry mobile to your pc using Blackberry Desktop Manager.

       Converting from .bbb to .csv:

  • Open MagicBerry and click on “File” from menu bar and select “Open”.
  • Browse to the blackberry backup folder and select the backup file which is in .bbb format. (Note: If the file is not visible, select .bbb format in “filetype”).
  • The file has been Opened, It’s time to convert it. Click on “Manupulate” menu and select “Export”.
  • In the window opened, select “Export all” and click on “Export to CSV”.
  • The file is now converted to .csv which can be recognized by all desktop manager’s.
  1. The sim in which contacts are to be copied is inserted in the mobile in which the copying option is available.
  2. Connect that phone to pc using recommended desktop manager and import contacts to that phone from the .csv file.
  3. Now, you can easily copy contacts from device to sim.
