    You use desktop manager to sync your address book

    Agreed. It's not like the Palm Desktop suite where you can edit through the Desktop Manager, but you can sync your Pearl with a number of thrid party apps.

    SWEET!!!

    If I were to sync my address book with my cell phone.... will the numbers that are not in the address book erase the ones that are on my phone ?

    for example: If I have David in my phone, but I dont have David on my address book.... once I sync, will he still remain on my phone ?

    thanks

    If you have Microsft Office, Lotus notes, Outlook Express, Lotus Organizer, Novell or ASCII Importer.

    I dont have the Pearl, but with my 8700, my outlook address book transfers over to the BB and vice versa when I select the intellisync option. It updates both. If there is a conflict it prompts prior to proceeding

    You can configure it to override in either direction. Phone wins or PC wins.

    So I can basically use the standerd "Address Book" program in windows and then sync from there ?

    Or sync them from your Pearl to Outlook. The transfer can go either way. If you're starting from scratch, I'd use outlook as an entry method. It is missing the PIN area though. You will only be able to input and acess that on your BB.

    Yep. You can use the Outlook Express program as your address book and sync to your BB via Desktop Manager. Not bad eh?

    How do I sync with individual programs in the device manager?
