    Contact Fields & Text Messaging

    Advertisement



    First off, I apologize if the questions I'm about to ask have been answered allready. New member here and I tried to go through every forum to find the answers to these questions.
    I currently have a Treo 650, I'm thinking of getting the Blackberry 7130e when it comes out. I have had a blackberry in the past, but it has been quite a while. I have my address book on my MAC and use Entourage, Mac address book & Palm Desktop. Many of the addresses I have, have the following fields

    Work Address
    Home Address
    Email
    Web site
    Work Number
    Work Fax
    Work 2
    Mobile
    Home
    Pager
    Other
    Notes

    Question 1

    Will the Blackberry download all this info when it is sync'd to the address book? (I dont mind if I have to transfer my contacts to a pc based program to get all the info. 3rd party software is fine)

    Question 2

    Does the Blackberry allow me to Text Message to another cell phone?
    (friends still text me from their cell phone, can I text back?)

    Great site! Thanks in Advance

    I do not know for a fact the details regarding the first question; but I can tell you that the bb (blackberry) has all the same fields. I can also tell you that eventually someone from this forum will find the answer and report back to you here.

    As far as the second question goes; YES! The BB was made for text based messaging. It's the industry standard. Text, Email, Instant Messaging, and of course Pin messages all abound with the BB.

    And let me welcome you to Pinstack.com! This forum and the people that add to it are very helpful and friendly. Go out and get your BB, drop the Treo and I'll see you in the stacks.

    Thanks Tweber78 and Hydn for your replies. I guess I should have been a little more clearer on my first question.
    Say I have the following contact in my address book

    Name: Joe Smith

    Home: 3333 Wild Dr
    Mission, BC, V2V6Q6
    Canada

    Work: 1111 Crazy Ave
    Vancouver, BC, V5G1A2
    Canada

    Work: 1-604-555-1212
    Work2: 1-888-666-3333
    Work Fax: 1-604-555-2121
    Home: 1-604-464-5252
    Mobile: 1-604-768-5000
    Other: 1-212-888-2222

    Notes: Met at Howard Forums Meeting

    Now.. When sync'd, what information will be sync'd to the Blackberry (ALL or just WORK or just HOME)

    Thanks Again
