    Hi,
    I'm a newbie to iPad 2. I have BB for work through an Enterprise server and haven't been able to figure out how to get my contact list transferred from the Outlook managed by them to my iPad (which is mine alone!!)
    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    If you have access to your Exchange contacts on your BB, I'm guessing you also have access to them from a work computer. Now it's been a long time since I played with Outlook, but last time I checked it was possible to select and export contacts. So dig around on your work computer and figure out how to select all your contacts, then export them as vCard files. This was also possible last time I checked.

    If your BB can export contacts as vCards (I wouldn't know) you could do it directly from the device.

    Once you have an export file email it to an address you can access from your iPad. Tap and hold on the attachment and it should give you the option to add it to your Contacts.
