    Hey guys,
    I just traded up my Blackberry Curve for a Pre and it should be here in a couple of days. I was just wondering if there was a way to move my contacts from the BB to the Pre. Thanks.

    there are several way s to do it really . you should ask the store rep where ever you go if they can move them for you. i had a treo last and the palm pre just grabbed my contacts from the app for that phone. my guess would be to start a googel account and transfer everything to that account from your phone now.

    Agreed.
    Make your Gmail your primary backup for contact info. Palm has flailed on this recently for some reason and many have lost contact info as a result of it.
    I myself lost all new contacts and updated contact info as of June when I recently got a refurb and my Palm profile reverted to information from June and not the day before I got my new (refurb) Pre. (Palm is supposed to automatically update your profile correctly once a day)
    Gmail and the Pre sync quite well in my experience and it's just better to be safe than sorry.
    (and yes, Sprint can dump your contacts from one device to another quite easily just remember the first thing you do when you get your Pre is to set contact info to back up to a Google account instead of the default Palm profile. Unfortunately it is unreliable at this time.. .)

    FYI, you can directly sync your blackberry to google by following the instructions below:

    Then just sync the Pre to your google profile as default and all your contacts will automatically sync with your Pre...
