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.

== 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.

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(

This clock is 6 years slow

This was supposed to show up back in 2003, now 6 and half years later it shows up. Mostly due to the corrupt union labor the MTA depends upon. Its began in the late summer and looks to be completed near the end of winter.

And we paid for it with lackluster service and increased fares just to keep their corrupt union laborers happy. :roll:

:D Just found out something about my old Blackberry Pearl 8100 while using the Opera Mini app. I Googled “compare Blackberry Tour vs Blackberry Bold 9700″ anyway. I wanted to compare these devices. So I held down the ALT key (the one with two arrows doing a ying/yang thang) and using my trackball pressed it down and “dragged the Bold 9700 to the little area. the screen refreshed but I didn’t see anything, so I went home and did it on my PC. And…there was the Bold 9700 in the little spot. Of course RIM sites could have put there when I typed “compare blackberry bold 9700 blackberry tour” in the google search box. But actually that just brought up the Google search page. but since I automatically logged into google whenever I…google, the link was purple because I already visited there with my Blackberry. So in retrospect i DID pace it there with my Blackberry Pearl trackball. HA!

Who knew? And who cares? I’m out.

I won a 25$ gift certificate

Because it will allow me to get these flourishes I keep seeing on the Internet and use them in my own videos. So the 25$ will definitely get used. I’ll try and use all of it at once on one order since money is really tight, and I just paid three credit card bills, and my DSL bill. that leaves me with train fair and a little bit of food until the end of the month.

Yay! :D
