    Transfer phonebook from Q to Pearl

    Advertisement



    I just got the Pearl today, and I was wondering if there is any way to transfer my phone book from the Motorola Q over to it. There's an option in the Q's contacts program called "Send via bluetooth", but when I use it (both devices are connected) it says that "device does not support a suitable service to perform this operation". I am able to transfer items from the 8100 over to the Q, but it seems to think it doesnt work the other way around.

    Anyone know how to get around this?

    are your contacts from your q loaded into outlook?

    if so you should be able to sync them

    the above will work also you can save the Motorola contacts to your SIM card. Then place the SIM into your Pearl open address book and click the menu key and select SIM Phone book / once it's loads select "copy all to address book".

    Hope that helps..

    No the contacts arent in Outlook, I just do everything from the phone. Also, the Q is a CDMA Verizon phone so there is no SIM card for it.

    im almost positive that he ported from vzw, however the tmobile store should be able to do a phone book transfer using a cellbrite machine as well (assuming they have one)

    your best bet is running the sync manager from your q to your outlook and then installing the device manager for your 8100.

    It will be a pain but its better than manually typing in all your contacts.

    I pretty sure that in the new Desktop Manager 4.2, you can use the switch device wizard for devices other than BlackBerry's. I would give that a shot. I' not sure what kind of cable connection you will need, but if you are doing bluetooth, I'd guess it would be easy.

    Looking at it more closely, not sure it will do contacts, possibly only the organizer.

    Zorn, Welcome to PinStack.

    Is there anyway to export your Q Contacts to the PC in an Character Separated ASCII format file?
