    Why is this so tough? BlackBerry Link seems useless. Shouldn't I be able to look at and edit my contacts in link from my old z10 from a sync and then just send the list to my new device?

    What new device? Do you sync contacts with Gmail or any other email?

    Maybe you can use NFC to transfer contacts.

    Z10 to z30. Tried nfc but didn't work. Lots of phone numbers do not come over when I restore a z10 backup to the z30.

    Wait a few hours and you will slowly see the contact list populate. It took approximately 5 hrs for all 2050 contacts to populate.

    Just activated my Z30 today. Coming from a Z10. Device switch in BlackBerry Link didn't want to work. Pretty ironic since I was going from BlackBerry to BlackBerry.

    Then I noticed the option to reload from another device backup. I had backed up my Z10 earlier just in case. Plugged in the Z30 and voila.

    Went very smooth and all data transferred seamlessly.

    Other than that, the Z30 is going very well. Snappy and responsive. Not all apps transferred. Apollo will be missed but now I can load Pandora from Snap.

    Have a good rest of the weekend.

    Also, I charged the battery yesterday and when I was done restoring all the data, getting it activated and it was done indexing the SD card the battery was at 50%. Took a nap and charged it up to 75%. Two hours later (playing on it) it's at 68% and showing 13 hours left.

    Unfortunately this is one area BlackBerry seems to ignore. You would think a simple method to manipulate contacts would exist. So fundamental for a professional device. We have a few Z30's for work but they are useless for contact management.
