How to transfer contacts from BlackBerry to iPhone

Matt Egan | Aug. 22, 2013
Access your BlackBerry contacts from another phone.

Your contacts data is now in your iPhone (as well as your Gmail account, should you wish to access it from your PC).

Transfer Contacts from BlackBerry 10 phone to iPhone

Not being a Google Apps for Business subscriber we couldn't get the above method to work on our BlackBerry Z10. And BlackBerry 10 phones don't come with BlackBerry Desktop software. Instead they bundle BlackBerry Link, which doesn't offer the same function.

BlackBerry and iPhone

The only good way we could find to move contacts from the BlackBerry Z10 was by using InTouch - a free app you can get from BlackBerry World, upload your contacts, and then install on to other devices. InTouch supports iOS and Android, as well as older Nokia Bada phones. And you can install a beta of the app into your desktop browser. Sounds good right? Well, it is. And it works for all BlackBerries, as well as those other phones.

Think of it as Dropbox for contacts. If anyone knows of a better way to transfer contacts from BlackBerry 10 handsets, I'd love to hear them! Let me know in the comments below, or @mattjegan.

Download and install the app. Accept the conditions.Set up an account. Hit Register, then give your name, email, mobile number, as well as a username and password. Then hit Register again.The app will now download your contacts from the BlackBerry. And, well, that's it. Install InTouch on any other device, or access your account from a desktop browser, and you can use all of your contact data. Indeed, update your account from anywhere and it will sync to all of your devices.
