    I tried to export contact to a file, then transfer the file inside a contacts folder in my SD media card, and when I try to open the contacts it says "Unable to display file/Media/Card/Telephone no/name.vcf

    The way I sync up is to open up Outlook then open up your Desktop manager. Keep in mind I don't use the Outlook email portion. There should be a icon for synchronize. Click on it and Configure it first. You may have to pulg in your BB for this. After you configure it then you can hit the sync button and it should sync right up.

    As Red says...plug in your BB, DM, Sync, and go to the Configuration Tab. Configure sync button will bring up a screen where you can select the address book and your outlook program.

    I'm back. YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST !!! One more question. I already inputed some phone no. but now I have some that are doubled. Can I delete multiple contacts fast on my 8100 or even all, and then re-sync?

    Glad you are up and running!

    You can certainly delete contacts on the 8100 but I am not of any quick way to clean up multiple entries....
