Data transfer from BB Curve to Thunderbolt

Hi all.  I just switched over from the BB Curve 8530 to the HTC Thunderbolt and I'm still getting used to this device as the functionality and interface are significantly different.  Before I mailed my old device back, I used BB's desktop manager to backup all my data, specifically information stored in the notepad application on the Curve.  My question is, how would I be able to first access that data and secondly, get it transferred to my new Thundbolt?  I already have my contacts transferred over via in store technical support.


Thanks for any insight!

Hi d_tbolt,


To transfer this information, it must first be converted to a .csv file and saved on the desktop of your computer. This file can then be extracted, then imported to Gmail. Got to and import the contacts into your E-mail address. Gmail will wirelessly sync the contacts to your phone. For simple steps on completing this process, please click here
