    So anybody had any success moving contacts to this phone? I saw something which indicated that Microsoft has not provided the full SDK for this platform and hence software like Transfer my Data or pretty much anything else doesn't work. Mobile store guys spent an hour with it today with no luck.

    If I can't move my 2000 contacts this phone is up for sale.

    Hope one of the WP 8.1 experts has a good answer. Maybe some app.
    Import from SIM wasn't worth a flip.

    I just have 200+ contacts, WP doesn't like .vcf files.stored on the phone.
    I had to Bluetooth contacts from the old phone 1 at a time.

    Sent you a PM.

    Can you export your contacts to individual .vcf files, not 1 big .vcf file?

    If so, I may have a answer.

    Just figured out a different way

    Well, from my past experience, you'll have to use an account from Google or Microsoft to work it easier. Using importing features from you desktop then syncing to this phone seems the easier way.

    It turned out to be a multi step process. Create an outlook.com email address, and add it to the phone. Then created a user account in Outlook 2013 desktop software with the same email address. Then synced the Blackberry to Outlook desktop so all the mail addresses came over to Outlook. Then synced the People app on the phone. Took a few hours but 2500 contacts successfully migrated.

    Phone is working well so far with one SIM. Will be adding the other this weekend. It's quite snappy so far, and we haven't even added the SD card.
