    Hi there,
    I successfully transferred my contacts from my Storm to my 2008 Prius via bluetooth when I first got my phone a couple of days after Verizon released it. After having my Storm for about three weeks, it was stolen from me at Target. The problem is, I didn't ever connect my DM to it. The only backup of my contacts is in my Prius. My replacement Storm is here, but I am unable to successfully restore my contacts FROM my Prius to my new Storm. Is it even possible? I do have my contacts from my old 8703e in my laptop, but was hoping I could avoid that process, and simply get them from my car. Any suggestions?

    When you first got your storm, did you have your contacts transferred from your old phone? If so, just bring your old phone and your new storm to a verizon store and get your contacts transferred again.

    I don't think you can BT transfer contacts from your car, it has to be done via DM.

    What you have to do is take that "Prius" and download a gernade into the dash! Pull the pin and push it down a hill and jump out!

    J/k man, but I do not know how anyone can drive one!

    It is an environmentally friendly car that gets 40 MPG. I wouldn't drive one, but if I had a wife I'd force her to drive one. Less gas bills to pay

    Thanks to all who replied. It will have to be Outlook that I use to restore my contacts. My old 8703e (which I really loved), was taken over by my eighteen year old daughter, and wiped.
    Now, I guess I will get out the DM, download it, etc..and get my contacts from outlook.
    I am not really proficient with the laptop BB sync, as I've attempted to upgrade os with my 8703, and never had true success. I did manage to get my contacts into my old phone though. I was simply trying to avoid that method.
    Thanks again....oh, yeah, and btw: my husband drives a Toyota Tacoma PU, and yes, the Prius was purchased by him for me.

    No, he's too hard on all of his stuff to ever have an i anything....now, after three broken phones (lg env, and two chocolates...hmhm...), he has what was described to him as an indestructible phone, the Boulder. Yeah, I think that's it...whatever....
    But hey, I did the DM thing, and connected my phone. I remembered that last year, after leaving sprint for verizon, I was transferring my contacts from one 8703e (sprint), to verizon's 8703. Mistakenly, I "swapped" them...making my one day old verizon bb a sprint. I had to take it in, they couldn't figure out how to restore it to the default settings, and ended up giving me a brand new one. I eventually dowloaded my contacts from my outlook, not my previous phone. Therefore, when I was prompted to choose what method to use with this current phone, (Storm) I chose to "restore" from my backed up verizon 8703bb. As long as I didn't "swap" I thought it would be cool. So, I did that. My contacts and EVERYTHING ELSE is now in my Storm, but nothing remained from my activity previous to the restoration. In other words, I have messages, etc from november, and then nothing until today. I also lost my browser, but was able to get it back last night. I'm kinda afraid to do much more because I think I will mess it up.
