    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I have never personally done it that way, but I believe it is possible. However, you can only do it through some type of PIM software, like MS Outlook, Lotus Notes, ACT, Netscape, and others. You can't do it through the Desktop Manager Software by itself.

    That is stupid. I think sometimes it would be a lot quicker to PC my address book. It astonishes me that it doesnt come like this.

    When I bought my phone the service clerk at the T-Mobile store told me that he updates his Pearl via PC.. Didn't go into detail but it must be possible

    Re: Can you update address book via PC

    I just got a new Pearl and would love to do the same. I've got my SIM card from my old phone (different carrier, RAZR) that I really want to load onto my BB.

    Any takers?

    if you are using a mail program like outlook you can set your device to sync new entries. If you set your mail program to sync contacts with desktop manager sync, it will update the phone book for you. It can be done thru the sync configuration menu in the desktop manager. It should ask you during the sync process which contact you want to update, delete or add.

    Re: Can you update address book via PC

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Following up on my previous post, as Vinny78 said you can sync your BB's "Contacts" on your PC, but not with the Blackberry Software. You need to use one of the supported programs which I will list below:
    -ACT 4.0/2000/6.0
    -ASCII Text File Importer/Exporter
    -GroupWise 5.5/6.0
    -Lotus Notes 4.5/4.6/5.0/6.0/6.5
    -Lotus Organizer 5.0/6.0
    -Microsoft Outlook 97/98/2000/2002/2003(XP)
    -Microsoft Schedule+7.5
    -Microsoft Schedule+Default
    -Netscape
    In the Desktop Manager software, use Intellisync to sync the contacts, however, I don't want to confuse anyone. Intellisync does not provide a program to sync with, only a means to sync your BB contacts with one of the additional programs I listed above. There are many options in the Intellisync area of the software for syncing your info that you will have to select to fit your personal wants and needs. Hope this helps and clears some things up. Feel free to reply to the post with any additional questions.

    del3030, Welcome To PinStack.

    I'm not sure how to copy the SIM Address book to your BB address book. But once it's done you can sync it to a compatable PIM, using intellisync in Desktop Manager.

    Does anyone know how to sync the address book from groupwise to their blackberry without using Blackberry Enterprise Server?

    I don't know why RIM would show it as a supported software, without telling users that they would need the BES (priced at $3000 for a single lic. and $4000 for 20) in order for the sync to take place. Nowhere in the documentation does it say
