    I got my Pre around 0830 this morning. They set me up, transferred contacts and I left....I noticed that I'm missing quite a few contacts from my Instinct.

    What is the best way to transfer the contacts, please help!!!! My Instinct is not active anymore either...

    i don't have a pre but there should be several ways that you can try:

    1) If you have outlook exchange then sync your instinct to that and then sync that to the pre.

    2) Goo sync.... same way. but you may have to pay

    3) Palm Desktop is a program for palm to connect PC to Palm. There should be a similar program for your instinct. If so then there should be a way to export and then import into the pre.

    4) I read that you may not be able to, but the easiest way is the send the contact through bluetooth. Instead of one contact, you'd be sending the whole database.

    good luck either way....

    It doesn't look like it's available. Only audio devices can be synced with Bluetooth for now, which is totally lame. Go to the Sprint Store and they can do it all for free. Go early, though!

    One of my family members has an instinct...doesn't the instinct backup its contacts online? IF you go to sprint.com and log on to your account...under accounts you should be able to manage your account and see all the contacts on your instinct under your plan. I'm pretty sure you should be able to export them out into a cvs file...
