The only way to transfer contacts to your android now that google sync has gone uses three apps: blackberry desktop manager (sync your contacts) then outlook (sync outlook with mobile devices) then create a csv form (https://motorola-global-en-usa.custh...k-2011-for-mac) to import in to gmail. long and arduous but reliable.

No need to spent $4.99 USD to transfer contacts. it is very easy to do natively.
Just pair both your android phone and blackberry via bluetooth, make sure it is connected (by clicking the blackberry device in android settings).
Then in your blackberry > bluetooth, find your android device > press menu button > transfer contacts. It will send a .vcf to your android and just open it with your android contacts app to import them.

Thank you jiatern. knew it could be done by Bluetooth but spent too much time looking in phonebook rather than bluetooth options. you've saved me as my bb desktop back up kept failing and as my bb is enterprise i couldn't use bb restore.

The fastest way is by installing Google Sync in your blackberry.
Install Google sync on the Blackberry by visiting Google Sync m.google.com/sync
Download the app and sync the Blackberry contacts to Google Account.
On Android device, simply signed in to Google account and it import all contacts.
Google Sync will take care of everything.
Even if u lose your phone, contacts are safely stored and restored to the new phone in minutes.
