Sprint Blackberry 8830 Import Contacts: How To

Posted By on Tue, Jul 31, 2007 at 10:27 PM

For an old Motorola RAZR V3 -- simply swap the old RAZR SIM card into new 8830, turn back on BlackBerry, click on "set up wizard", you should see a line for "import contacts from SIM", DO IT!

[Loading, loading. Done.]

Turn off 8830.

Swap back in new SIM.

Fire it up -- wah-laa -- all the old RAZR contacts.

I couldn't find this FAQ on the Sprint or CNet sites. I figured it needed to be written.

(Note: Sprint advises against SIM swapping from rival carriers. Whatever.)

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
