    ipd editor

    Advertisement



    I have a BB 7250. I would like to purchace a ipd editor so I can retrieve address book and edit it and put back on BB. Is there a program out there that lets someone edit their ipd file? Typing in a hundred names, numbers and emails can take a while. I also want to take all my stuff off my 7250 and put on a newer BB. If there is a program that does this, would be great. Thanks..

    Actually, you don't need to edit the IPD file to edit your Address book contacts. Go to the Blackberry Desktop Download site, and download the Desktop Manager 4.2. THis will allow you to sync your BB to an AscII file which can then be edited with Notepad, or even Excel. Then you can re-sync with your BB and all will be updated.

    I'm not sure but the latest version of Desktop 4.1 may also have this feature.

    The App that cp was thinking about is for extracting databases from the ipd file. It will not allow going the other way.

    hope this helps
