This tutorial will help you transfer BlackBerry MemoPad to your iPhone. To do so you’ll need to use BlackBerry Desktop Software, Outlook and CopyTrans Contacts. This method works for all phones running BlackBerry OS and all iOS devices including iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus & iPhone X.

Backup the BlackBerry MemoPad

  1. The first step is to export your BlackBerry memos to the computer. You’ll need the BlackBerry Desktop Software for this. Download the program and install it:

    Download BlackBerry Desktop Software

  2. Run the program and connect your BlackBerry to the PC: blackberry desktop software main program window with blackberry not connected

  3. We recommend you to back up the BlackBerry. To do so, click on the “Back up now” button: click on back up now button in blackberry desktop

  4. From the new window, select “Full” under “Backup type” and click on the “Back up” button: select blackberry backup type in desktop software and click to confirm

  5. Let the BlackBerry backup finish: blackberry backup in progress - do not disconnect your device

  6. When the backup completes, select “Organizer” on the left and click “Configure settings”: select organizer data to synchronize in blackberry desktop

    NOTE: If the MemoPad option is greyed-out and shows “(syncing wirelessly)”, this means that you are currently syncing the BlackBerry memos to an online service. You need to turn off wireless synchronization from within your BlackBerry. If the wireless sync option is not available on the BlackBerry, refer to this troubleshooter.

  7. From the newly opened window, check the box next to “MemoPad”: select memopad from intellisync wizard in blackberry desktop software

  8. Choose “Microsoft Outlook” and click “Next”: memopad setup window displaying a list of available desktop applications

  9. Next, select the option called “One way sync from Device”. This means that the BlackBerry memos will be transferred to Outlook: one way sync from device option in blackberry desktop software
