More on Blackberry to iPhone contacts transfer

I got ahold of both the Blackberry and iPhone yesterday to perform the transfer.  We did have to go back to the Verizon store so they could activate the Blackberry phone again.  On the Blackberry, I just needed to direct the browser to and install the Google Sync software.  The page contains an link for all the Google mobile apps and then individual links for the separate Google apps so you can download and install them one at a time.  The app installed without a problem.  I set up the gmail account and attempted to Synchronize everything.  However, I found that if you have no calendar items, the synchronization just hangs.   When I deselected the calendar items, the transfer of all the contacts worked fine.

I attempted to check gmail at the store to ensure the contacts went copied up fine, but we only had an iPad with it's gimped Safari browser, so I couldn't find the contacts at all.  We decided to go ahead and activate the iPhone again and attempt the contact download.  The odd thing about synchronizing with the iphone is the gmail account has to be setup as an Exchange Server.  The contacts immediately showed up.  We didn't need to synchronize at all.

Mission accomplished.
