    Backup the 9650 via DM
    Plug in the 9930 --> go advanced and just import the phonebook

    There are many ways to skin this cat but for me the easiest, and one I recommend for more than just moving contacts, is using Blackberry Protect. I used this to backup my contacts, downloaded it via App World onto my new Bold and restored the contacts from there.

    The additional security features it provides are pretty good. Check it out but of course you can use the Desktop Manager which I loth.

    If it has been doing what it is supposed to do (if you set it up to) the automatic backups should have everything already and you just need to restore on the new device. Mine backs up every week and it was coincidental that it had done a backup the night before I got my new device. It was very very painless changing devices this time around and did not touch that slow buggy Desktop Manager.

    Blackberry Protect, google sync, or Desktop manager.

    I think Desktop Manager or Protect are the ways to go. Both are super easy...

    My 9650 contacts and saved messages backup were greyed out and indicated they are "read only". I couldn't restore those files. Did anyone else have this problem? Everything else was fine.

    I had that issue. I just used the BB Protect restore to put them on my 9900.
