    Address book transfer to another device is not supported by BlackBerry devices. It only works with car kits that I've seen and that I know of.

    Look at your bluetooth options... there's an option... "Address book transfer"... By default it's not activated... Try to activate it and try again...

    That option is for transferring contacts to your Bluetooth Car Kit. The article below states that Sharing of the address book with any bluetooth device other than car kits is not supported.

    Well the address book can be shared other ways just not from one device to another like that...mainly because of formatting and such...if you do a bluetooth transfer there is no translator to change it from BlackBerry format to another format that can be read on a different device.
