    address book software

    Advertisement



    I have an 8700g. I'm looking for desktop software that I can make entries to the address book from a desktop computer and later sync with the address book on the BlackBerry.

    It's too hard to type hundreds of names into the BlackBerry when I can type nearly 100 words a minute on a standard keyboard.

    Is there software that does this?

    Outlook Express works just fine for this. Just put all your address book entries into Outlook and sync it to your bb.

    shawn, you don't get Outlook for your Blackberry, you get it for your PC. Outlook is a Microsoft software email and PIM application is part of MS Office. You should be able to get Outlook Express for cheap, don't know where, maybe a download from the MS Website, but it only has email and Contacts, I think. And there are other PIM applications that sync with the BB though Desktop Manager. With DM 4.2 you can even sync with a Text file and import it into Excel, if you have that, for editing.

    Hope this Helps

    shawn, what do you do at present to synch PC info to your BB? What contacts software are you using? I used to use Outlook Express for emails and stuff pre-BB and did quite a lot of work to load Outlook instead of Outlook Express. As cp said above, it works great. I believe Lotus is quite good as well.
