    Did you create a backup file from your old Curve and transfer them to your Torch? You have to use the desktop software for that. If your old phone was linked to a gmail account, you can also use google sync (which is now native in the new version of BIS).

    Copy the old contact onto the Torch and insert the new one and copy them from the phone to the new one. Once this is done, if you already have Desktop Manager 6.0, backup your Torch. Download and install OS .246 and update your Torch. The OS suggestion is meant to be as you are already in DM. Once you install the latest official OS, your experience will be better than some early adopters who were on OS .141

    Use the newest software. You can also just download it from Cell Phones, Smartphones & Mobile Phones from BlackBerry.com. Simply put, the contacts are not stored on the SIM card, so you'll have to transfer them through other means.

    Yeah, many folks agree the droids and Apple blow away the Torch. But its good for unsophisticated folks in Red states.
