    How to get memos into Memopad without typing on the BB?

    Stupid question, I know, but... what are the options for getting data into Memopad without typing on the BB? I don't see this option in the Desktop Manager.

    There is not an option off of the desktop manager. you would need to write it up in say outlook and synchronize it into the BB. By the way welcome to the stacks.

    Kevinvale, if you're on BES, the Memopad should automatically sync (just like the calendar and contacts).

    Thanks. I am on a BES. Can you tell me which Memopad you're referring to?

    Not sure if this helps you in any way, but there is a 3rd party program, IdeaMatrix, which gives you memo pad on steroids...

    One of the features it has is what's called RexDesktop. It creates a backup of all of your memos in IdeaMatrix on the internet. Go to RexDesktop from any browser, log in, and you'll see all of your memos, along with the drawer/folder medaphore used to store your IdeaMatrix memos. From here, you can, online, create new folders and/or drawers, as well as create new memos. As soon as you log out, RexDesktop sends an e-mail to your blackbery, instructing it to sync with the online RedDesktop.

    Once your bb syncs, it deletes the e-mail which instructed it to auto sync, and the info you added online is now on your blackberry! Pretty clever system.

    If you add anyting on the blackberry side, you can either conf. IdeaMatrix to sync every certain hours, or manually tell it to sync, which takes all of two seconds to complete.

    I find myself adding longer notes online, as it's much easier to type on my computer then on my bb. I can also cut/paste long items into new notes, and they magically appear on my Pearl as soon as I log off of RexDesktop.

    Not sure if this helps you or not, but thought I'd mention it.

    (No affiliation with the Rex guys, just really like their program)

    If you are a Outlook user on BES, you can just type it into a Note on Outlook and it should automatically synch to the BB memo pad.

    If I need to type a long memo, I usually type on my computer then sync it with outlook.
