How to Transfer Address Book from BlackBerry to iPhone on Mac

Sync BlackBerry Contacts with iPhone

Transfer all contacts from Blackberry Pearl to new iPhone 5?

My uncle just upgraded from a BlackBerry to iPhone. Only problem being, as the sim cards are different, we cannot simply import all contacts from sim.
He has just under 300 contacts, so I really hope there is a simple way I can transfer the Address book from BlackBerry Pearl to the new iPhone, please tell me this is so!!
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Cheers, Lee
iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.2, Blackberry import?!
