    It helps to know if your using Windows or Mac and what other software you are using to manage your contacts with. Normally it's as easy and one last sync with the old and a fresh new sync with the new phone using the same contact manager.

    you can sync with windows contacts or outlook.
    Quotes to live by:
    • Inspiration is like a lost sock. When your searching you can never find it, and when it appears, you least expect it.
    • There are no exceptions to the rule that everybody likes to be an exception to the rule.
    • Ideas are the factors that lift civilization. They create revolutions. There is more dynamite in an idea than in many bombs.
    • Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.

    I don't know of any way to transfer contacts from one phone to the other without using a computer and a contact manager that is installed on the computer.

    Sync your BB with your computers contact manager using the desktop manager.
    When that's complete close the Desktop Manager and unplug the BB.

    Then use iTunes to sync the iPhone with the same contact manager.

    You can store contacts to sim from the blackberry, and those can be read on the iphone. It's much better to use the PC IMO but if you must go by phone only this is how you do it.

    Transferring contacts to sim should be an option if you push the BB button while viewing your contacts.

    Transferring from sim to the iphone is under settings > mail/contacts/calendar

    ^^There is your solution^^ Sometimes the simplest is the best.
    Guess I forgot about that one. If you have hundreds of contacts keep in mind you can only transfer them one at a time.

    Hate to use the SIM to move contacts as you can loose so much information. You need to find someone with OutLook and you can bring everything over to your iPhone

    Can you install google sync on the iphone ?

    set up a gmail account if you dont have one on your berry already, run the sync then go to the iphone and install google sync ?

    Might be an option if you dont use outlook or some other contact manager

    You don't have to install google sync on the iphone. Itunes recognizes contacts from that on the PC so it works just like Outlook.

    So there you go, install google sync from http://m.google.com on your berry and sync the contacts from your berry to google, then when you load up Itunes(blah icky) it will find your contacts
