    Transfer Contacts to 8800 via Bluetooth

    Advertisement



    Hi ,

    I recently acquired a 8800 & want to transfer my contacts in my old device - Sony Ericsson K700i to the 8800 via Bluetooth. I am not able to. I have paired it. I am able to send the Contacts of the 8800 to the Sony device but not able to receive the huge list of contacts from the Sony device.

    Please help.

    Thanks

    Re: Transfer Contacts to 8800 via Bluetooth

    I don't have the ability to test but IIRC all bluetooth transfers must initiate on the BB -- regardless of whether it's sending or receiving. That probably means that you're out of luck when it comes to transferring contacts as I don't know how you'd get the BB to request a contact from another device.

    Re: Transfer Contacts to 8800 via Bluetooth

    Yea..I am still struggling to find an answer. Looks like I may have to use the Desktop route. Sync the contacts on my Sony to the desktop - outlook. Then import them into the BB desktop and sync it.

    Have to try it out.....but still wondering why I am able to send contacts out from my BB but cant seem to receive any. I am able to receive Photo's into my BB though...

    Any solutions ?

    Thanks
