Transfer instinct contacts to Palm Pre

Can someone help me? I bought my Pre this morning and Sprint tried transferring my contacts....Well, I get home and notice only a partial of my contacts transferred. What's the easiest way to get my contacts off my Instinct and to my Pre. I don't want to have to do all of them manually!!!

I used goggle to sync with my desktop than sync google to my phone. It was easy.

Check Mobile Sync on sprint.com (it's in the Online Tools area after you log in). If your Instinct was set up right by whoever sold it to you, all your contacts should be there.

If all else fails you may be able to transfer them by bluetooth. If you have to transfer them one by one it would be a pain, but at least you only have to do it once.

Mobile Sync does not work with the Pre.

You have to do a phone to phone transfer or use other methods. When you purchase your Pre all of your contacts get removed from Sprint.com. The Palm Pre backs up to Palm.com.

not really. all my contacts were still on sprint.com. if you check palm's site there are some tools that help to transfer your contacts.

If they are on sprint.com, export to .csv file, import into google mail contacts and sync with google. Like the previous user indicated, works well and try the pre forum: http://www.palmpreforum.org/index.php for more specific answers to the pre etc..

You can also shoot the contacts from the Instinct to your PC via Bluetooth, then use the Palm Desktop Assistant to sync them to the Palm OR upload them to Google and use the Google sycn to sycn them to your Palm Pre.
