    Blackberry Pearl- transferring contacts from outlook express

    Advertisement



    Hello
    I recently upgraded my wife's phone from a nokia 6300 to a blackberry 8120.

    I have been unable to synchronise her info from her last phone to the new one.

    I do know the contacts were saved to outlook express, however i cant seem to get them onto the BB.

    Basically, i would like to be able to take the backed up version on Nokia Pc, to the BB... in the worst case scenario... just the contacts will do.

    Please help.

    You need to install Desktop Manager on your PC (see the link in my blog) That will allow you to sync your Outlook Express with your BB. As for your Nokia data, unless you can get that info into Outlook I know of no way to transfer it, the switch device wizard only supports palm and widows mobile platforms....

    Desktop manager will sync with OE (if OE is the default email app for your destkop)

    Connect your BB
    Launch DM
    Launch Synchronize
    Configuration Tab will put you in the set up screen

    Oh yeah click on MY BLOG

    the only issue is that i dont use either outlook or outlook express for emails.

    The nokia pc works is that it loads the info from the nokia's on OE, however the DM for BB seems to only find outlook when looking to sync?

    nnr,

    That may be a problem but we also need to check your software. Destkop Manager 4.2 supports OE 5 and OE 6. Desktop Manager 4.3 supports only OE 6. (OE4 is only supported by 4.0)

    Before we go furhter can you confirm that you are using compatible apps?
