  1. pretty sure you can do this without a PC. if you set up e mail sync your contacts will be in your email and logging in with your BB id should move all contacts and contact info to your new device

  2. The contact sync works only with Gmail accounts. Some people don’t have Gmail accounts, guess this is an option for them
