Transferring Blackberry contacts to Android Galaxy Note 2

UPDATE: NOV.25.2012: THE BLACKBERRY OS WILL NOT TRANSFER OR THE ANDROID OS WILL NOT ACCEPT CONTACTS THAT DO NOT HAVE A -NUMBER- OF SOME SORT, BE IT SMS OR VOICE. IF THE CONTACT ONLY HAS AN EMAIL ADDRESS OR MAILING ADDRESS IT WILL NOT BE TRANSFERRED. SO BE SURE TO ADD SOME NUMBERS, LIKE 1234, IN *ANY* PHONE NUMBER FIELDS IF YOU WANT THAT CONTACT TRANSFERRED. I LEARNED THIS TOO LATE. :oops:


FIRST OFF, YOU MUST *NOT HAVE* ALREADY ACTIVATED YOUR NEW SIM CARD IN YOUR NEW PHONE!!
SECONDLY, YOUR OLD SIM CARD *MUST* REMAIN IN YOUR BLACKBERRY!
AS THE GALAXY NOTE 2 USES A SMALLER SIM CARD, YOU SHOULD NOT REMOVE IT ANYWAY.

PREPARE FOR TRANSFER/BACKUP YOUR CONTACTS:
SELECT THE BLACKBERRY OPTIONS/SETTINGS AND SELECT MOBILE BACKUP
MAKE SURE WIRELESS SYNC IS SET TO “YES”
PRESS “SNYC NOW”

DO NOT ACTIVATE YOUR NEW SIM CARD UNTIL YOU VERIFY THE BLUETOOTH TRANSFER WORKED!!

(Do this in case your particular Android device fails the
Bluetooth transfer, this way your carrier will have the latest backup
of your contacts.) THIS PROCESS WILL NOT TRANSFER CALENDER, EVENT, MEETING, OR TASK DATA!

1: Enable Bluetooth for both devices
2: Pair both devices to each other
3: Go to Blackberry’s Bluetooth setup, and select the Android phone - for me it’s SGH-T889 renamed Galaxy Note 2.

4: Press the enter key or trackpad, and the device menu will pop up.
5: Select “Transfer Contacts”


6: Your Android device will popup a request to accept a file named ‘Phonebook.vcf’. Choose ACCEPT
7: Your android will now accept your complete contact list!
8: Your welcome! Now if your in LA buy me a chocolate pudding cake and a Coke.
My name is Paul.

If this does not work for you then you may contact your carrier to see how to transfer the backup from the server to your the SIM Card in your new phone.

For T-Mobile, AFTER you have activated your new phone, NOT BEFORE, login to your my-tmobile page.
Verify that your new Android phone is displayed and NOT the Blackberry. If not, update it by clikcing the “Not your phone” button link. Then hover your mouse over the “MobileLife” menu item
and when the drop down menu appears, select the Contacts selection.

This will bring you to all of contacts as stored from your last Sync. You will see 4 categories: All, Uncategorized, Deleted, Phone. To the right of these are your contacts. Click one and you will see all it’s details. Each contact has a tick box next to it for individual selection. Click the isolated tick box that it at the very top of these, this selects ALL of the tick boxes.

Now while they are all selected, select any contact and HOLD down the RIGHT or LEFT mouse button and then drag it over to the phone ICON. Your contacts will now be transferred to your new phone. HOWEVER, as this is a new feature of MobileLife it may not be fully activated. I tried it twice and it didn;t work. Then saw at the very bottom in FINE PRINT: “This feature is not activated yet. Check back later.” Or something to that effect. |-|

BOLT 2.5.2 Discontinued

Bitstream has discontinued development of the Free BOLT Mobile browser for all platforms as of Dec. 2011. BOLT was a mobile browser that was rich in features and rivaled it’s competition, Opera Mini. It allowed the user to experience a near PC like experience. Even though it did not have full Flash support (which many mobile devices do not), it still allowed users to view streaming videos on many sites such as YouTube.

BOLT 2.5.2 Discontinued

Attempting to browse with the browser after Dec. 4th will result in the browser locking up with a title that reads “None". The only other option at that point is to just close the app and delete it. This occurs on the Blackberry. Not certain what the symptoms are for other devices that supported the BOLT browser.

The BOLT web site, www.boltbrowser.com, is still active, but only displays the above message. As it was a free app, deleting the app from your device won’t be an issue. No word on a paid alternative.

Netflix Queue Manager v3 for Blackberry has been discontinued as of 10/2011

In late September my NQM app stopped connecting to Netflix. As I logged in I was greeted with this Initializing screen:

Initail startup screen

Then it just dropped into the Login screen following an error message stating “Login credentials incorrect. Please retry".

I sent a Feedback report from within the app and got nothing. In October I sent an e-mail to Pyxis Mobile asking for an explanation of the status of their Blackberry app Netflix Queue Manager v3:

I keep getting “Login credentials incorrect. Please retry” with no indication of what’s wrong. I connected just fine
a couple days ago, and now all day I get the login error. I tried all suggestions in the FAQ, what is going on?
Is the app being discontinued because of Netflix’s new service changes with separate queues?

October 12, 2011 2:26 AM
I even removed the app form my Netfilx authorization list, and re-added it. I still get the “Login” error message.
I have changed the Connection Type to Auto, BIS, and Wi-Fi and none are working. What is going on? I paid for
this app (4.99$ see below for invoice) and want to know why noone from your company has contacted me yet??
What is going on? Why can’t I connect? My Netflix account and password are correct. I linked from both my Blackberry
and my PC and the link was successful. Why I am not connecting? What is going on? Why won’t anyone tell me what’s
going on? It’s been over a week since I first emailed this issue to you!

Is the app being discontinued because of Netflix’s new service changes?

PS: Why the Android version FREE vs the paid version for Blackberry?

Hi Paul,

Unfortunately, Neflix has discontinued support of the public API used to manage user queues and thus, support for the application has also been discontinued. Thanks.

Jeff

This is the only official information regarding the Blackberry app on the Internet: here on my blog and .netBoard!. The only other information is located here on the Netflix Developer Blog.

For 1 year and 5$ it was worth it, but Netflix is really getting my goat. Reading the Blog you discover that even the Qwikster API is being canned, and maybe the whole idea as a whole. Netflix doesn’t want to do DVDs and Bluray anymore?! Then what is the point is staying in business at all? The streaming catalog has only a fraction of what is offered on DVD, and the Bluray catalog is even less. Sigh….I see a dark future for them unless they go back to the original business platform.

== EmPower's Battery Saver is a battery killer ==

I posted a review of battery saver on blackberry app world, and because it was a negative review, it wasn't posted. Or maybe because it had the word "crack".

So here it is:

----------
2 stars

This app ☀really☀ slows down my 9700. I charged it last night to 100% (BB 9700 was off when while charging); came on @ 8am; alarm went off at 11am; - got up at 153p & it was at 73% - this app doesn't save the battery; it severely drains the battery. I thought it was The Birds 9700 theme, but no. This thing is cute, but really just slows down, and drains the battery.

After uninstalling it, I turned off my 9700 it was @ 100%; it auto-turned on @ 8am; when I woke up @ 2PM it was still 100%. It is now 8PM and its @ 89%.
People giving this app a high rating must have been smoking crack/hash ☹; it does auto off/on as it should and I love schedule function, but that's all. Waste of .99¢.

AMAZON SHOPPING CART ERRORS AND WOES

You should know that Amazon.com is having issues with the site. When I accessed the site earlier this afternoon at 3PM PST I first received a page that was only partially loaded as though the CSS parser was broken. When I reloaded the page I received the following:

http:// 1.1 Service not available

So I closed the tab, opened a new one and reloaded. This time I got the main page anmd it showed the number of items in my cart (3). But when I clicked the cart icon I got three following message in red.

The item you were attempting to add the your cart was not recognized by our system. Please try again later.

I did a search for one of the items in my cart and added it to my cart with the add button and the number 1 appeared in the cart graphic. Bu when I opened the cart again I got the same message about it not being recognized.

I sent an email to the Express e-mail support, but do not believe I will receive a reply. It is clear that the site was cracked. But will it mean my cart and wish list is gone forever. Unless they will be revived via backup. Also their “forums” are a joke.

It is now 8p and I have not been back to the site and do not kow what as transpired as of yet. We shall see.

Yesterday I got a message from Facebook noting that the Black Gay Pride event was cancelled, and that the ATBLA account was closed. So I called the ATBLA and left a message. According to a phone call I got today Facebook has closed the account for ATBLA due to “inconsistencies". Now I don’t what that means exactly, but it was clear that I believe that Facebook just hates Black Gay People, and doesn’t want them on their site.

Browns, why not.
White, sure.
Yellows, no problem.

But the nee-gee-roes!!?? Not a chance!! :crazy: |-|

They allow the browns, yellows, and whites to post explicit pictures on Facebook, as seen here

>:XX >:XX >:XX >:XX

But Black gay People can’t post events or have account to celebrate their gaiety.

I’m just saying….

Last week I died in 20 minutes.
Now I can never fall in love, because I’m already dead.
I just wanted to feel another person.
I died last week.
I died in 20 minutes.
Now I can never fall in love.

I can’t touch

I walk around and see constantly
What I cannot touch
I cannot feel
I cannot kiss
I want to cry, but I must remain strong.

I died last week, in 20 minutes

Seriously Real? Seriously, you want US to PAY YOU to watch DVDs in RealPlayer SP?!?!

WOW! |-| Now that’s BALLS! I mean Windows Media Player is FREE with the OS, and WinAMP is just FREE. And they allow us to play our DVDs for ..uhm…let..me..se…uh..FREE! 88|

So, uh what exactly are we paying for? Maybe, you still think you’re relevant and people actually care about you? :crazy: Please, they just want Rhapsody :yes: . RealPlayer SP is a joke in and of itself. You should be ashamed. But, since you are a company housed in the east..I guess we can’t blame you. You need the money.XX(
