    8703e address book

    Advertisement



    hi allz,

    i have an issue maybe someone could help me...
    we are like 50-60 people at work with 8703e model and i have the PIN of everyone in a spreadsheet. I want to know if there a way that i can creat a address book and send it to users so they can restore it in their blackberry?

    That will be usefull because it will take us to much time to enter the PIN of everyone on each blackberry...

    Thank you..

    Are you in the IT department? Do you manage the BBs for your company?

    If they are comfortable with changing the desktop manager sync settings you could create a properly formatted character separated AscII file containing all the contact information including the PINs and send it to them, then have them do a onetime sync with that file. But be very careful as if they make a mistake in setting it up it could really mess up their BBs and there contacts in what ever PIM your company syncs with.

    Hope this helps

    i entered all people PIN information manually on my BB... now if i do a selective backup (address book) with Desktop Manager on my computer then i send the .ipd file to friendz at work it will work or not if they restore this .ipd file to their BB?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~We just have web page that is formatted for the Blackberry screen. Users just click on the PIN and compose a message. From an administrative point of view its a single centrally managed file so changes are instantly seen by everyone as soon as they next call up the web page. And yes its an internal website accesible via the Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES).

    Hey Om3r! If u do a selective backup i.e. Address book,then when u restore on ur friends bb or any bb it will replace whatevers already in the address book so... If they don't have any contacts yet then its fine but if they do thell lose all and even if u backup and restore it'll then replace ur pin file that u did before so all will be for nothing!

    Hope this helps!
