    I used the Desktop manager (DM) to transfer my contacts when I transferred from BB9000 to BB9700 ... What you'll have to do it plug the Bold 9000 first and then in the DM ... Click or select the backup and restore tab ...click on Advance ...and then your phone info should load on the right hand side ... then select address book all and it should move it to the left side ... once that move happens save that file and then do the same process again but this time with the BB9700 plugged in ... once you get back in the advanced options part and your BB9700 info loads up... transfer the saved address book that you pulled from the BB9000 to BB9700 and all your contacts will be added to your new Bold.

    I know it may sound like a long process reading it at first but its real simple at least to me anyway and that's how I did it.

    use DM. Go to backup/restore, then click Advanced. Save the address book DB and then restore on new BB
