    Hi all... I am finally navigating from the BB 9930 to an iPhone 4S...

    I think the most important thing that I need and can't figure out is, how do I transfer my contacts from the BB to the new iphone?

    If they are on an Exchange server, they will transfer automatically.

    If not, you just need to find a way (such as Blackberry Desktop) to transfer them to your computer's address book. (Outlook on Windows, Address Book on Mac.) Then you can sync them either directly with the iPhone or through iCloud.

    Your carrier may have a way to transfer contacts as well.

    If your contacts aren't' already on an Exchange server, you could try setting up a Google account if you don't already have one. Then use Google Sync, which works with both Blackberry and iOS. Sync your contacts front the BB to Google Sync, and then go from Google sync to the iPhone.

    Just transfer them into your address book on your computer and sync them.

    transfer contacts from BB to iPhone

    - Connect your old Phone to iTunes on your PC/Mac and sync - In the Info menu, ensure your contacts are set to sync
    - In the iTunes device list: Right click on your iPhone and select 'Backup' from the context menu allow the backup to complete.
    - Connect your new iPhone to iTunes (on the same computer you used to back up your current iPhone)
    - iTunes will ask you if you want to 'Restore from a backup' or set up your new iPhone as a new phone.
    - Select 'Restore from a backup' - Choose the most recent backup of your current iPhone (if prompted)
    - Sync your new iPhone to receive the backup information and your contacts.

    actually, using iTunes is a bit troubled though it can transfer them, you can rely on the third tool to do it. i have used a tool that is really user-friendly named Phone Transfer, which can transfer files easily
