How do I transfer Blackberry contacts to iPhone?

Our company is switching all employees’ phones from BlackBerry to iPhone and I find it hard to transfer my contacts to the new device? I currently have a Bold 9700 and the iPhone is 5c.

Thanks in advance!

    If you have a Windows PC, it is simple: Sync the BlackBerry contacts to your Windows Contacts folder, then transfer the contacts from the PC to your iPhone as described here:

    On your BlackBerry, go to and download the Google Sync app. Open the app and sign in with a Google account (work if you have one, home if you don't). Select 'Sync' and your BlackBerry contacts will be synced with your Google account.

    On your iPhone, go to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Select 'Add Account' and select 'Microsoft Exchange'. Enter your Gmail username and password when you're asked. Now, in the 'Server' field, type and select 'Yes' to sync contacts and calendars.

    That should do it! You can also download the InTouch app on both phones, which will let you share contacts between the two.

    Another method is described at, but I think these two are the best.
