How to Transfer Data from a Blackberry to an Android Phone?

The original business phone has become less of an essential as Android and Apple have become more established.

 

Although Blackberry produces Android phones nowadays, you may find you need to transfer contacts from a classic Blackberry to an Android phone.

 

The easiest way to do this without using third party software or connecting to a computer is to transfer using Bluetooth.

 

1.  Switch on Bluetooth on both of your devices. In Android it should be available in the swipe down shortcut list.
