    mlc1971, Welcome to PinStack.

    To Start with, what error does it report? There are a couple of possible causes for this. One, you may have a contact that doesn't have anything in at least one of the Name, Company Name or First Name fields. Another possible cause is that some of your contacts have attachments associated with the Notes field.

    Check the Desktop Manager Sync Log to find out what the last contact that loads properly is.

    Hope this helps.

    mlc, the standard BB advice when in the shyte is
    #1 battery out for one minute FAILING THAT
    #2 reinstall the handheld software (instructions on this site)
    The BB is an extraordinarily robust animal compared to most comms devices, you will be fine.

    Try to find the log to see what contact fails.

    No luck yet. I can't find Research in Motion folder under Documents and Settings. In the Read Log, I see several "Unspecified" contacts that usually occur when 2 contacts have same last name. I tried to change names and it still hung up at same place

    Question 7130e faults out on Outlook contact sync

    Gee, I hope you can help. i've read this string and followed all the advice. My 7130e desktop manager fails everytime when I ask it to sync with my desktop contacts. Everything else syncs fine. It fails at the same number 1230 out of 1316. I've tried to find if I have a corrupt contact or corrupt file --but can't find anything.

    Any other suggestions folks? Thanks

    seaweed5, Welcome to PinStack.

    Well it's apparent that there is a problem with a specific contact. Here is a procedure to find the offending contact. This procedure will take some time but eventually you will find the offending Contact.

    1. Create a copy of your Outlook .pst file as a backup. just in case. Name it Backup.pst,
    2. now create two new subfolders in your contacts list. one called Works, and one called Other.
    3. move half of your contacts from the Main folder to the Other folder
    4. Sync your Contacts, If it completes you know that the bad contact is in the Other Folder.
      1. move the contacts in the Main folder to the Works Folder.
      2. move the Contacts in the Other folder to the Main folder.
    5. If it didn't complete, the bad contact is still in the main contacts folder
      1. Move the contacts in the Other Folder to the Works Folder
      2. Move the half the contacts in the Main Folder to the Other folder.
    6. Repeat From Step 4 until you find the offending Contact.


    Once you correct that contact Move everything from both new folders back into the main and sync again. If that was the only bad contact it will complete if not . . .. Well just start over.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your BB.

    Re: 7130c synchs everything on Outlook except contacts

    Bingo- I had the same problem- Export your contacts to Excel- In Excel, sort them by name and either get rid of the blank lines our copy the name you have for the contact into the common name file (I used the first line name). Get rid of the junk (blank entries, entries that were partially deleted before but have remnents remaining (this happens when you think you have deleted an entry on your phone, but all you have really done is gotten rid of the first 5 or 6 lines of the entry). After you have cleaned up the Excel file, save it, delete your Outlook Contacts and then import your Excel file. Worked like a charm.

    You can also make sure that all of your contact have a first name, last name and business name (even if it 'Personal'), it's easier to sort in Outlook that way to find which and do not have these fileds populated
