    Can you sync them to gmail or yahoo? If so then you can use iTunes to sync them from the cloud to the iPhone.

    I just had to do this when I got my iPhone 4...

    All you have to do is use the blackberry desktop manager to save all of the info to your Mac (Contacts, Calendar events etc ) and then just tell iTunes to sync the contacts and events... It will do it just that once... Very simple...

    Hope it helps...

    I wonder if there's a way to save them to your SIM card and then import them on the iPhone.

    ok thanks because i'm on Verizon right now gonna order my iphone tomorrow.

    I am coming from Verizon so don't have a sim card in my BB. I'll give the BB manager a try I guess.

    BB manager did the trick for me, it only took seconds to save the info, and it was just one more click in iTunes, I also did a backup of the BB just before, and the good thing is that unless you do a restore on your BB, you will have a backup of all your contacts there...

    Apple stores have these kits with adapters for maybe every smartphone there is, dunno but I have seen them and there's a lot of different ones. No doubt they have em for your bb.
    Anyway they are using these to transfer data from probably any other phone anyone is bringing in onto their new iPhone.
    It's pretty impressive.

    I exported my BB contacts through bluetooth, and it saved my phonebook as a .vcf file. You guys are saying iTunes will be able to recognize this and import it to a new iPhone? Thanks


    Good idea, the only problem is that the OP's BB probably uses a full size sim, whereas the iPhone 4 uses micro-Sim

    you will have a problem if one contact has more than one phone number ... the sim will seperate them into multiple contacts ...
