    couldnt you transfer some of the stuff through bluetooth phone to phone . also your contacts you can save to your sims card one at a time it sucks but beats putting them in manually.

    First off, did the new BB come with a new sim card or do they want you to use the old sim?

    If you only have 1 sim card then you will use the new BB as your battery charger, charging both batteries in it. You can copy all contacts from old BB onto sim card and then just use the old sim in the new BB. I hope this helps... let us know.

    if you did a recent backup under Desktop Manager you would have all your contacts, emails, settings for profiles/phone, phone call log etc. (minus the new changes from backup to current). That is the only way to get all of what you asked for.

    As for just contacts, you can copy them one-by-one to the SIM card... not sure about sending them via bluetooth (seems it is not an option on Verizon's 8130)

    Hey how bad is the usb socket broken on your bb. I run all the blackberries at my company and I have seen this a few times. if everything look pretty intact you probably can get it to work again. there is a little trick (try it) set your bb on a desk with the cord plugged in get a pencil and slide it under the bb where the usb plugges in. So your bb is tilted now and the cord is floating in the air. Like I said if your port isnt trashed it might work. If you have any questions email me.
