    Question Saving contacts from blacberry

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    My old laptop running lotus notes has died and I have a new one with outlook. Unfortunately I had over 1600 personal contacts in lotus that are sync'ed with my 8703 blackberry. I am being told I need to do an enterprise activation to get it setup with Outlook and am concerned if my contacts and calendar get wiped out. Does anyone have the answer? Thanks!

    If you sybc the device to outlook before the activation you should have no problems. It should work with just the activation depending on what rules your BES admin has setup~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    rajiv1p, Welcome to PinStack.

    I believe that the enterprise activation should also work, but from what I hear it will take a long time with that many contacts to sync if the EA is done wirelessly. But I'm not an expert with BES so I could be wrong.

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

    Hi Guys, thanks for the advice. My bb folks are telling me that the way they have setup the enterprise activation, it would wipe the blackberry clean.

    So I am going to try syncing with Outlook before EA. Any recommendations on version of desktop manager I should be using. I have a 8703 and am on VzW....

    Also, assume I am just going to sync calendar and contacts..?

    Yes, sync your calendar and contacts as well. Yes, your IT dept is correct. It does wipe your handheld. I know from experience when I was set up on my company's BES server. It did wipe my handheld but I had all of my contacts, calendar, tasks, etc synced with my PC at home.

    Install the desktop manager that came with your 8703e. I'm not sure ehat version it is. I'm sure it is a version of 4.1 something. I use a BB pearl and my 8700g, so I'm using the desktop manager 4.2 that came with the pearl to sync both of devices (of course not at the same time).

    Good luck to you!
