    How do I transfer my contacts from a BlackBerry device to an iPhone 4 ?

    • Answer
    • To transfer your contacts from your BlackBerry to an iPhone 4 you can use Google Sync on your BlackBerry.
      Google sync application.
      Part 1: On your BlackBerry 

      • If you haven't already got a Google account, create one at www.google.co.uk and then sign in
      • Enter your phone number at the Google web linkwww.google.com/mobile/sync/ to have the Google sync app sent to your BlackBerry
      • Next, follow the installation process on your BlackBerry
      • Once Google Sync is installed, select Sync
      When you have the latest Google sync app, enter your Google account login details.

      • You will then be able to sync your contacts to Google
      • You can check they are there by logging in to your account on a PC, by going directly to google.com/contacts

      If you want to sync only the My Contacts group, you must choose to Delete Existing Contacts during the Google Sync install when prompted. If you choose to keep existing contacts, it will sync the contents of theAll Contacts group instead.
