    blackberry desktop software should do the trick. Just setup a sync and set it to transfer all contacts to your computer

    either blackberry dm, wifi sharing, both work well for me. can be dreadfully slow at transferring though.

    thanks i am totaly new to iMac i will try that out. So far its a huge improvement over the nightmare of windows 8. i am the last guy you would expect to buy apple, yet for desktop the options are limited, i have used ubuntu but it lacks support for printers and such.

    My first Mac was a Macintosh II (~1988) and have been a Mac users ever since. The BB Desktop will NOT sync your contacts or iCal data for your Playbook, though, it will for a BB phone. I ended up entering the information by hand..... BB Desktop will sync iTunes, your pictures and videos. As for using BB Desktop for backing up, I have not been able to do that now for over a year. When I try I get an error message. When this all started I contacted BB and they told me that they are aware of the problem and will fix it in the future...... Enjoy you iMac!

    I have the Galaxy note phone so i exported my contacts to the sd card, plugged it in the imac and was done in seconds. Maybe when i get my z10 it will at least be able to do that.
    I am enjoying the mac. I doubt i will ever buy an i phone or ipad. Maybe a small ipod for the gym, my phone is too big for using as a music player at the gym.

    Yes - I did another thread on this yesterday. It took a wee bit of work, but got it running on my PlayBook and my iOS devices and Mac.
