    I'm also a (pending) crackberry convert - awaiting the arrival of my X.

    I've started the transfer w/this article:
    http://www.androidcentral.com/jumpin...-you-need-know

    google sync did a great job backing my BB contacts to gmail, but it doesn't seem to work for backing up my calendar -- any thoughts?

    it'd be a big pain to have to manually transfer all my calendar info when my DX arrives.

    forgive my noob-ism, but - what's backup asst? do you mean on the BB or the DX?

    upon further reading in the help section of google calendar, i found this:

    "Please note that events that are on your BlackBerry calendar before you install and run Google Sync will not get synced."

    i'll look at it this way - if i can't find a way around it, inputting all my calendar events manually will be good practice with Swype.

    Man, it sure seems like this device really broke the camel's back when it comes to bb users jumping ship...
    I'm two weeks in from making the switch and I couldn't be happier.
    Anyway, just wanted to say that my contacts synced seamlessly and from a different carrier to boot. I already used gmail as my primary, but all of my calenders synced perfectly. I never even had to think about it.
    I did have to link some duplicate contacts together, but that was mainly because of not using people's proper names on my bb.
    Anyway, I didn't mind b/c it's fun to do even menial tasks on this phone.
    Enjoy!

    You could do it that way or go into Google's calendar on your PC and enter everything that way. I haven't used Backup Asst. Does it not transfer calendar entries?

    BTW, Backup Assistant is a VZW application to backup everything for you and make it easy to transfer to another device.
