    Getting contact onto Straight Talks Samsung R451C

    Has anyone found a way to copy contacts from another phone onto a Straight Talk Samsung E451C. I have been unsucessful with Bluetooth or the USB cable. I wrote to Customer service and they said copy them to the SD Memory card. (I don't have one) And was wondering if anyone has done this and how to do it. I have the contacts synced to my windows address book on my WIn XP comptuer. I know Samsung Studrio and Bitpim don't work. Per Elstron (the rep for straight talk) there is no way to copy by Bluetooth or USB I am just wondering if the memory card might be an option?

    Also does the 355 phone have the same problem?

    I was able to transfer contacts to and from my phone using a USB/Bluetooth dongle. It's a slow process....requires a keypress to confirm allowing each contact to transfer. But it does work.

    Why not just buy a micro SD card? That worked for me.

    Hang on, it's been awhile. I'll have to dig out my r451 and see how I did it.

    Someone else want to jump in perhaps?

    Here is how i did it!!!

    *****************

    SCH-R451C - Transfering Contacts

    The Tools:

    HTC 8125 PPC from old provider (10yrs... i know, im a sucker) ATT-Wireless/Cingular.

    HP Desktop w/XP

    Asus EeePC 1000HE Notebook w/Bluetooth.

    New Straight Talk Samsung SCH-R451C.

    750ML Bottle of Jack Danials.

    2 cans of Ginger Ale.

    The Task:

    Get 150 contacts from HTC to Samsung.

    The Limitations:

    The task would be easy if the HTC were to permit me the ability to send contacts via Bluetooth. HTC will allow transferal via IR port, but that dont help us any here.

    Desktop computer does not have bluetooth, but does have MS Office w/Outlook, as well as, ActiveSync. ActiveSync will sync HTC w/Outlook. FYI... ActiveSync will not sync contacts with Outlook Express.

    The notebook, has bluetooth, and Outlook Express (which, of course, i dont use).

    Outlook, as it turns out, aint so friendly to converting down the chain to Outlook Express. Outlook wants to export to <.pst> format, naturally... OE dont want no <.pst>'s in there house cuz, Bill, said so!

    This is where "Jack/Ginger" speak-up... ... nothing ever seems "simple" w/ Microshaft.

    After considerable consternation, and loathing the possibility of manual entry, I discover that there is, indeed, a common link betwixed the inbred clients!!! The Comma Separated Value <.CSV> file!! ... Another Jack/Ginger!!!

    The Solution:

    1. Sync HTC with Desktop to OUTLOOK.
    2. Export the Address Book to a <.CSV>.
    3. Transport the <.CSV> file to the Notebook.
    4. Import the <.CSV> to Outlook Express.
    5. Simply start bluetoothing the contacts to the New Straight Talk Samsung
    SCH-R451C using OE's convenient "Action" Button, RIGHT?
    6. WRONG! In true MicroShaft fashion... It's not that easy. You must
    transfer each contact one at a time, repetitively.
    7. Move to the veranda deck... Your New Straight Talk Samsung SCH-R451C
    phone, the Asus EeePC 1000HE Notebook w/Bluetooth, the 750ML Bottle
    of Jack Danials, and 2 cans of Ginger Ale.
    8. Spend the rest of the afternoon in the sun with a great drink while
    repetitively being reminded of how ridiculous the "Tech World" is, by not
    standardizing certain aspects of there proprietary nature.

    OK I have the contacts into outlook express version 6 but I don't know how to transfer them from outlook to the phone. You say bluetooth them but I don't know what option to use in outlook express. Thanks really much for replying though I just need that detail.
