    I have a Bold and used the Desktop app to back up my contacts, is there a way to upload that information to my new Classic?

    It's my boss' phone, I don't know what process he has gone through other than he used the desktop application to back up the Bold, he then thought he could connect the new Classic to the desktop application and import the contacts, but he's saying the Classic is saying different software is required. If this is the case, is there a patch between the two?

    Use the BlackBerry device switch application from BlackBerry World. It saves contacts to an SD card that you use to transfer to a new device. You also havew to down this app to the new device. This works very well for me.

    Thanks - I read about Device Switch, but it sounded like it only worked to transfer data to a 10 device, not the Classic or the Passport. Do you know if that's the case?

    It is not.

    I am 90% sure that YES, you can use BlackBerry Link to restore contacts from a Bold "backup file" to a BlackBerry 10 phone.

    I say 90% sure because I saw it in the Restore options, but its so much smarter to use a synced account, so I don't use local contacts. It's too easy for them to get lost if they are only on one device. I want my address book available on any device I use and to sync between them.
