    I want to transfer phone contacts to my Android 8.0 phone, a Motog6, from a Blackberry Trorch 9810 phone. I have tried two methods I have found on the Internet. The first method was to use Bluetooth with paired devices. This did not work as the Motog6 said that file transfer failed on my attempt to transfer the very first contact, and the Blackberry 9810 ended the transfer after the first contact failed. The second method was to use a program called MobileTrans, but this program did not recognize my Blackberry 9810 once I plugged it in to a USB port, and its website does not support the Blackberry 9810.

    Does anybody know of a proven way for me to get the contacts on my Blackberry 9810 to my Android 8.0 phone without having to manually add each one separately ?

    Welcome to Android Central! Can you still install apps to the Torch? If so, try using Backup Contacts to save your contacts as an email attachment: https://appworld.blackberry.com/webs...86679/?lang=en. Then see if you can import that contact file to your Google Contacts: https://support.google.com/contacts/...DAndroid&hl=en

    I was able to install the Backup Contacts on my 9810. It only works fully if you pay for it. Also according to the importing in Google Contacts it needs a file type called a .vcf file and the Backup Contacts does not create the contacts in a .vcf file but in a .bak file.

    That looks promising. I will try it and report back if it does not work.

    Thanks very much for your help. I did succeed using the vCard Export and the ability to import the data into my Google Contacts.
