    Hello & question

    Advertisement



    Hello all. I just upgraded from an I836 to a BB 7520 and so far I am happy with it.

    However, is there a way to sync contacts between my desktop and the BB. I don't want to put everything in manually if I can avoid it.

    BTW- I am using the BIS version not the enterprise version.

    Welcome to Pinstack!

    If you use outlook you can sync your accts through that.

    mxgene, Welcome to PinStack.

    There are serveral PIMs besides Outlook that can be sync'ed with your BB, but it is the one that the BB was designed to use. Here is the List from the RIM Website for Desktop Manager 4.1

    Microsoft Outlook 97, Outlook 98, Outlook 2000, Outlook 2002 Outlook XP or Outlook 2003
    Lotus Notes 5.0.6 or later, 6.0, 6.5, 7.0
    ACT!® 4.0.2, 2000, 5.0, or 6.0
    Lotus Organizer 5.0, or 6.0
    Microsoft Outlook Express 5.0, or 6.0
    Novell GroupWise 6.0, or 6.5
    Netscape® (contacts only)
    ASCII Importer/Exporter
    NEW! Data Migration wizard that imports Contacts, Calendar entries, tasks, and memos from Palm®, Treo™ or Windows Mobile™-based devices. See knowledge base article KB-043466 for information on the data mapping that is performed by the data migration wizard.


    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Re: Hello & question

    To get the contacts to your BB check if you have OS 4.1, and if you do then you can put your sim card into the BB and try to load the contacts...

    Then you can sycn with your pc as mentioned above.
