Person at the store should be able to do it for you...I'm surprised they didn't ask you when you were getting the new phone

The micro and mini usb cables are like a buck a piece. Order some extra for the next time you lose one.

Transfer your contacts to your computer using the BB desktop manager. Then you can sync to your iphone with Outlook or another client.

I just had to do the same thing when moving from a BB Tour to my Evo.

In all seriousness, if you have a gmail account, install the Gmail app for BB. I think the link is m.google.com on your BB browser. Then sync all your contacts.

Then on your iphone4, set up a Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync account to your gmail account mentioned above. If you are prompted for the server name, it's m.google.com
