My Blackberry Curve has been with me for 4 years since its launch in 2009. At that time, Blackberry was the most adopted brand for business man in mobile phone industry. To be frankly, I and my colleagues were pretty happy with the device, especially its email client and messaging app. However, with the growing popularity of iPhone and its touch based user interface, people now are more accustomed to this behavior. And physical keyword powered smartphone is rare in these days.
A week ago, I finally made a decision that I will switch from Blackberry to iPhone, it means my long serving Curve will be retired. I have played with my wife's iPhone 5S for a while and quite like the device for numerous apps in App Store. I can do all kinds of tasks with specific apps which Blackberry lacks. I got the iPhone today, the first thing I need to do is to transfer my 300+ phone contacts from Blackberry to the new iPhone to make it work in real life. This is a huge project if I typed the contacts one by one, but honestly, I don't want to do this myself. I am more willing to pay a few bucks to buy a tool doing the work for me.
I did some research on Google and finally Androidsoft Phone to Phone Transfer comes to my eyes. The software is capable of transferring contacts/SMS/photos/videos from Blackberry device to iPhone seamlessly. It only takes a few minutes to help me transfer all my contacts to iPhone, only with 3 single clicks. Below is the experience that I want to share with you.
