How to transfer contacts from Nokia to Blackberry

Method one: Copy your contacts to your Sim card from your Nokia, then from the Sim card to the Blackberry. This method loses formats of contacts like pictures, it also doesn’t work if you have more than one number under one name, and it doesn’t work if you have a lot of contacts. I have over 1300 contacts, and my old sim card can save only 100.


Method two: Synchronize your Nokia with Outlook, then synchronize your Outlook with your BB. This method is actually the best, when I did it, I lost some numbers, but it’s still the best available method. Basically you lose numbers if you have for example 2 numbers saved for Nancy, and each are saved under the field (Mobile). Also, there are fields on Nokia like (Home2) that are not compatible with Outlook. If your contact list is simple, this method is good. The big disadvantage of this method is that not every one owns or uses outlook. I used to have Outlook in my old job, but now I don’t.


Method three: Exporting your list to ASCI file, then importing the file from your BB.
Connect your Nokia phone to Nokia PC Suite, and go to Contacts. then highlight all your contacts, then click on File, go to Export and export the list to a file saved on your desktop. Pictures below:

Then start BlackBerry Desktop Manager:

Go to Synchronize, then click on Configure and click on Reset Configuration. After that click on Synchronization:

choose Address Book, a screen like this will pop up, choose ASCII Importer, then choose the direction of Synchronization, it can be one way to the device, or both ways, to the device, and from the device to the file.

After that, browse for the file you saved on your Desktop, and click next.

This will Copy all the contacts to your Blackberry, but again, here you will face a lot of problems IF your contact list on your Nokia is complex. You will lose all the pictures, possibly some emails, fax numbers, or numbers that are saved under fields not compatible with your BB.


Method 4: I really like this method, it’s Synchronizing your Nokia contacts with Gmail, then using Google Sync again to synchronize them back to your Blackberry.

In order to do this, you will need to download Google Mobile App to both phones. Once you install the app, Google nicely explain how to execute the task on this website. This method is brilliant, but like previous methods it is not flawless. Although it transfers pictures, it can lose some numbers. I also noticed that some names were transferred without numbers!

I hope the above is helpful. If your address book on your Nokia is simple, then use any of the above. If it’s complex, try all and see which one gives you the best result!

How to run Android on Windows Mobile Phone

Install Android on your HTC Windows Mobile phone – Guide

Welcome to the official XDANDROID AOSP thread which is dedicated to getting Android running on our beloved HTC devices.
Phhusson: has dedicated most of his time helping users and updating kernel to run Eclair and his work for other msm7k devices.

How to Remove Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications

Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) notifications occur when your computer hasn't passed the validation test. The validation test can be failed due to being sold a pirated (non-genuine) copy of XP, or because you have changed your XP product key to a software-generated key, or sometimes it just happens for no reason at all. The failed validation installs three types of notifications on your computer: one on the log in screen, one log in timer, and one balloon. It also stops updates from Microsoft and disables your ability to install IE7 and Windows Media Player 11. This solution can get rid of all three notifications, even though you will still not be able to update through Windows Update. You will not be able to download things from Microsoft that requires a valid license either. EditSteps
Delete Method 1 If you have only just installed Windows Genuine Advantage notifications, simply using the system restore function will remove the program. Then refuse to accept the WGA update next tim…

OS Setup (Windows): Installing using the MBR or GPT partition style

Applies To: Windows 8.1 When installing Windows on UEFI-based PCs using Windows Setup, your hard drive partition style must be set up to support either UEFI mode or legacy BIOS-compatibility mode. For example, if you receive the error message: “Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is not of the GPT partition style”, it’s because your PC is booted in UEFI mode, but your hard drive is not configured for UEFI mode. You’ve got a few options: Reboot the PC in legacy BIOS-compatibility mode. This option lets you keep the existing partition style. For more info, see Boot to UEFI Mode or Legacy BIOS mode.
Reformat the drive for UEFI by using the GPT partition style. This option lets you use the PC’s UEFI firmware features.

You can do this yourself by reformatting the drive using the instructions below, or if you need to preserve the data, use a third-party utility to convert the drive to GPT format.
Why should I convert my drive? Many PCs now include the ability to use the…
