    Transfer All Contacts From Nokia To BlackBerry

    I am currently Developing an application which Transfer All Contacts From Nokia device to BlackBerry device and steps are

    1> Write All Contacts in file in vCard Format
    2> Convert it into XML format
    3> Send XML file to BlackBerry device via Bluetooth Device
    4> Received XML file and parse XML file in BlackBerry Device (using another application )
    5> Add Contact in its Contacts


    I am finding this procedure very long...
    My Question is...

    Is there any better way....?
    Can BlackBerry use File or string that is having vCard Format
    Can Contacts added from direct vCard Format File or string in blackBerry Device...?


    Thanks

    Not the best forum to ask for Blackberry questions. But I would be surprised if Blackberry did not have a library to import vCard format.
    In worse case, you can handwrite a vCard parser in Java and avoid the XML step.

    Hi mihirpmehta

    No its not an open source
    no this is the only steps what u have mentioned,the contacts are stored as per the vCard specification
    and u need to convert it into the raw xml or wxml format and then transfer it to the blackberry.

    1.sync your nokia contacts with ovi store ( make sure to go in to "sync options-contacts-more options" and change "sync with contacts application" to "windows contacts".
    2.after completing windows sync, connect you bb and open desktop software.
    3.go to organizer and choose configure settings and choose to sync "from windows contacts"
    4voila!!! its done...

    oops sry i dint mention.. windows contacts means windows 7 contacts.in windows 7 you can create contacts just like in outlook only better. just sync your contacts on nokia with windows 7 contacts just like i mentioned on my previous post and it'll be easy for you to transfer them to bb.
