Can BBerry calendar, memos, contacts move to Moto Droid 4?

I'm thinking of switching from BlackBerry Bold 9650 to Motorola Droid 4.

Verizon has given me four totally different answers about transferring contacts, calendar and memos from Bberry to Moto.

Answers range from "it can't be done," to "it should be easy," to "it can be done but I don't know how," to "call Google or Motorola."

Does anyone know if it's even possible?

And, if so, how?

Thanks.

Hi mermaz!

I'm sure I can provide the final answer and solution for you! Can it be done? Yes! It can be tricky depending on how you do it. The easiest portion is the contacts. You can download Backup Assistant on the Bold, save contacts, then download the app to the Droid 4 and import the contacts. The app is free and managed by Verizon Wireless. That app will only do contacts though.

What I honestly recommend is moving everything over to Google sync, since Google is the primary source is sync on the device and you'll need a gmail account anyways.

Are you using Blackberry Desktop Manager to sync your information to Outlook? If so, its an easy import/export process of each file type into Google Contacts, Google Calendar, and Google Tasks.

Here are the export steps from Outlook: http://bit.ly/SMfR2d
Here are the import steps to Google: http://bit.ly/Rx6r81

Once everything is migrated to Google, you can activate the Droid 4. The set up screens will walk you through signing in to Google and all will sync over automatically. If you wish to keep everything in Outlook on the Droid 4, then you would want to reach out to Microsoft or search the Google Play store for available options.

Keep me posted of your progress.

Thanks!
