transferring address book
just rec'd an 8320. Have enabled email using my pop3 acc't from my win xp desktop. Want to transfer my address book from that to the 8320, but I can't see how to do that. Without email and internet, it's just an expensive phone. Can anyone help? The documentation BB provides is worthless. Thank you. Insurer
Where (what program?) contains the address book you want to load on your BB?
Download and install Desktop Manager 4.3 (multi language)
This software will allow you to "sync" your address book with OE
Be aware before you begin that this is a lengthy download and install.
thankyou. downloaded fine, but how do I sync any file w/the BB?.Under "properties" in the software, says under device connection, com1 is disconnected. Under BB router config, it wants a router address. I have a router for the broadband. Is that the router? Where do I find address?
This may sound dumb, but you did plug the phone in to the computer via the included USB cable, didn't you?
If so, there should be a connection settings dialog box where you can select USB.
I also think you have to reboot the computer after installing Desktop Manager or it won't detect the BB is connected.
Good luck and welcome to the stacks!
Not sure what is causing the router question - ignore it for now....
#1 Make sure you set up BIS and not BES/Redirector
#2 Is your BB connected with the supplied USB cable directly to your desktop (not through a hub)?
#3 Once connected, launch Synchronize and Use the Configuration Tab to set up your Sync with OE
