    From what I've gathered, this is a no-go, but I thought I'd ask. I use my blackberry for business only and I had an old Javelin for about 3-4 years before it bricked on me. After some begging and pleading, I convinced the company to get me the Z10

    Now, I'm stuck with this issue of my contacts and calendar. Based on what I've read, at this point in time I can't transfer my contacts from that old backup file. No biggie, the contacts and just as important, a constantly updated calendar is on Outlook 2010 on my laptop. I thought I was safe via that route, however, I've read that I need to install some programs on my laptop and open a Live account and some other mess to be able to transfer my contacts and calendar from Outlook to my Z10.

    I don't administrative rights on my work laptop. I guess the option I have is of using a gmail account to sync with both outlook and my Z10, that way I avoid double entries. Anybody find a workaround to this?

    Maybe someone out there knows a workaround...

    You can try to use PIM Backup and Restore - BlackBerry World - PIM Backup And Restore

    It can easily to help you import your backup contacts (.vcf format) and calendar (.ics) to BB z10 without using any gmail sync.

    You may watch the tutorial video
