    I've added my Tbolt as the 3rd fone on my family plan. How can I import into the Tbolt the contacts from one of the other fones?

    Need more info on what type phones, etc. If contacts are in Google, then you can load by signing into your account on the new phone.

    A VZW store can transfer for you

    When I switched from my BB to Droid I exported my contacts through Outlook Express (into a .csv file) and then imported them to my g-mail account.

    Yes, what phone are your contacts stored in now?

    If VZW transfers your contacts, they will have your contacts syncing with their software (backup assistant) , Not Google.
    Just FYI...
    That leads some people to problems later on.

    If they are already in gmail, then u just log in and it will sync all of them.
    If you are wanting to start a new gmail account, then go to gmail website, contacts, export. Then just import to new account

    Thanks

    Thanks, everyone.
    I seem to have separate groups of contacts: some in GMail, and a lot in my old phone. The GMail contacts came over automatically, but have no phone numbers.
    I'll be trying the methods you suggested.

    The contacts I want to import are stored on my old (still active) VZW cell phone

    You can go to VZW Backup Assistant. TB should have the app for Verizon.

    The TB does have the app, but it restores only my GMail contacts.

    Your other contacts are probrably synced with VZW backup assistant. If they are, then you just need to go to that website and log in. Export contacts to csv file then log into gmail and import them to gmail. Or you can use the vzw backup assistant app and let it sync your contacts (but then you have contacts syncing from two different sources)
    Or you can got to VZW and they will transfer them.
