    You could do it through DM (desktop manager)

    You have to use the switch device wizard off of the desktop manager. Pretty simple. Just follow the on screen prompts.

    here is the instructions from the manufacteror. http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/searc...200%2043140853
    As far as the DM, the device should have come with a CD. Load it onto the PC.

    the links above will help you with syncing it to your BB but as far as getting it on Outlook from your treo, not sure about that. good luck!

    Re: Sync Contacts

    Either way you need this software on the computer. Forget about putting the info into outlook. load the DM on the pc. Trans info from treo to BB, sync from BB to outlook. Very simple. If you have any ?'s post back and i am sure we can help.

    Then you would load the desktop manager and set up a synchronization with outlook to get the contacts back to the BB.

    Re: Sync Contacts

    once the DM is installed there will be an icon for sync. go in there and hit the configuration tab, select configure sync and make sure that you select microsoft outlook not outlook express. make sure you have it set to synchronize not import or export.

    let me know when you have the DM loaded on the pc and i will try to step you through it.
