    Default 3 questions

    I have 3 questions now that I'm betting the horse on the 17th:

    1. Is anyone else planning on adding a line for $9.99 in order to get the TB?
    I went in a VZ store on the 4th (of FEBRUARY) to make sure I could do this, and as of then, they told me I could do it, but it would change my bill by about $35 (I'm on the highest individual plan). At the time, I thought the phone would be about $500 so I thought maybe I'd buy it straight out...but now at $700....

    2. Is there a guide to converting from BB to Android? I saw the link on this forum and tried it, but I'm having problems with transferring contacts to google, so I thought maybe there was a more comprehensive description somewhere of how to go from BB to Droid...

    Hmmm...I can't remember the third question/ inquiry...

    Oh the last question was - if you use the wi-fi to connect to your laptop with the TB, would you be able to talk on the phone and surf on your laptop @ the same time?

    #2 Try here to start. Once you get contacts to Gmail / contacts getting to phone is a piece of cake.

    Google Sync for your phone

    If you are trying to get them out of outlook wirelessly then it is alot more complicated. You can always use HTC Sync via usb.

    #3 If you are running on 4G data you could teather and talk at same time. As of now you can't connect 3G data teather and talk.

    Click this link from your BlackBerry browser to DL Google Sync onto your BlackBerry. Google Sync for BlackBerry .

    Open the app after you install it and click to sync contacts. Will take a few minutes.

    This will copy your BlackBerry contact list onto your gmail account.

    I actually downloaded the Google Sync and I couldn't get my contacts from my blackberry to sync to my gmail account online...The calendar wouldn't work either, and I followed all the instructions.

    Anyone have a better way of completing this or know why Google sync might not work?
    Currently enjoying my first Android phone!

    What do you mean it won't work? What is happening. Do you have the correct version of google sync on your blackberry?

    What happens when you try to sync using the app?

    I was having the same issue and after some google searching, contact syncing, especially from BB is buggy, even with the google sync. I actually ended up downloading this program Contacts Sync - Synchronize Outlook Contacts with Gmail Contacts
    to get from my desktop to google and I haven't quite worked out from the BB to Google, so I exported them using a CSV file for the time being...

    Not sure how to help you with that one. Google Sync works well on my Tour.
