hello all,

i'm trying to synchronise my old contact from Blackberry Bold 9900 to Z1. unfortunately my bold is not working anymore -a software issue i guess- so i'm trying to sync the contact thats already copied in whatsapp to the contacts in my Z1. any idea how can that be done? i want to be able to directly use the contacts and not to use whatsapp every time i'm trying to call someone.

please help :( thanks.

Welcome to Android Central! I'm not familiar with WhatsApp, but try looking for an option to export contacts from WhatsApp to a file (usually a .VCF file). If you're able to do that, then you can import it into your People app right on the phone, or into Google Contacts on the web.

Also, did you ever sync your Blackberry to your desktop with their desktop manager program? If so, you could more easily export those contacts, and then import them into Google.
