How to copy your contacts from your Blackberry phone to your Android Device.

To move your contacts from your blackberry to your android device simply follow the steps below:

1. Sign up for a Gmail account(also known as google account) if you don't have one.
2. Go to blackberry app world and download Google sync (I think that was the correct app name) to your blackberry.
3. Open Google sync, sign in with your gmail account and Sync contacts to Google(by clicking sync now).

4. On your android phone, go to your phone's settings ( if you don’t have a shortcut/ icon on your home-screen, you can find your phone's setting icon in your list of apps ).

5.   Scroll down and select the tab that says Back up and reset.
 Now  make sure the "Back up my data" tab is checked, and if it is not, check it right now.

This option would ensure that your contacts are backed up automatically. As soon as you add a contact to your phone book it will automatically be backed up( synced ) to your signed in Gmail account. If you lose your phone through any means or like in this case you want to copy your contacts from your blackberry phone, your contacts will be restored when you sign in to your google account and switch the synchronize button on your google account.  To do that follow the simple steps below.

  • Go to settings.

  • Click on accounts

  •  Click on add account

  • Click on Google

Log into your Gmail account on your Android device i.e the same gmail account you used on your black berry device. 

  • Click on Accept.   

  • After signing in, go back to your where you have accounts( As indicated above it is located in the settings) Select google account from the available list.

  • Select your google account, turn on the sync contacts option and all your contacts will be restored after few minutes.
