Contacts transfer via Bluetooth


May 6, 2008, 5:38 PM
Is there a way to transfer my contacts from my old (now de-activated) VX9800 (yes, the original V) to my enV2 via Bluetooth? I have a cable for my V and have exported my contacts, ringtones, etc. to my laptop. My laptop has a BT card and I was able to add the enV2 to the devices list, but I'm not sure how to transfer my contacts. BitPim, however, will not recognize the phone. It isn't in their list of supported phones, but I figured that choosing the enV would be close enough.

I know that I can e-mail myself a ringtone at xxxxxxxxxx@vzwpix.com and save the sound as a ringer. Picture/Video/Sound messages are pay-per for me, so this isn't the most economic way to transfer ringers.

I'd buy a cable, but who wants to deal with that shi...

An inexpensive microUSB cable will do the job MUCH FASTER than Bluetooth could ever do it.

Word... I didn't want to wait several days for the cable to get here to get my contacts into my new phone. I just did Bluetooth vCards one by one. Really didn't take much time for 150 numbers.

A little tip for those who choose the same route: on the phone accepting the contacts, you don't need to acknowledge receipt of the vCard(s), just send one after another from the source phone worked for me.

Don't you have Verizon's FREE Backup Assistant?

From VZW site:

How much does Backup Assistant cost?

The monthly subscription for Backup Assistant is $1.99. When downloading Backup Assistant, usage charges apply (airtime or data, depending on your plan). Standard Text Messaging rates apply when you initiate contacts synchronization from the Backup Assistant website. Have the monthly subscription fee waived and data charges when you register for My Account as the Account Holder.

It wouldn't work anyway since my old phone is deactivated. I wouldn't be able to download anything to it.

you have to do the backup before you deactivate your old phone. but it's a great feature.

I'm new here and getting the env2 tomorrow so that's why I'm here - to get info. Anyway I was told by a rep at vzw store that if you get a new phone they will transfer your contacts at the store for free. I was going to use the backup asst and couldn't access get it now on my phone. Went to store and they tried to do software upgrade. She even said they could transfer from my wifes phone and she has just a cheap phone that doesn't have getitnow feature on it. Check it out and good luck.

here is what worked for my 8350 to env2 upgrade.

1. pair your old phone with new phone.
2. go to the contacts in your old phone, and highlight a contact that you are transferring.
3. hit the options button.
4. under options, all the way at the bottom is "send name card"
5. you will then be prompted for what method; select bluetooth.
6. then select your new phone from the list.
7. NOW here is the neat part. after that you will then have the option to put a "check" next to as many of your contacts as you want. after you do that, hit "done"
8. select your new phone from the list of paired devices and that should do it.

I just got a new env2 and had an old env2 and found if you pair them together via bluetooth, then do the following...

1. Go to contacts
2. Select Options
3. Scroll down to "Send Name Card"
4. Select "Send via bluetooth"
5. Then select "options" ---> MARK ALL --->OK
6. Select "done"
7. Select your bluetooth device - in this case your other Env2 phone.
8. Once you select your device it will start the transfer off all of your contacts.

I transferred 180 contacts in less than 30 seconds!
