Default Re: Cannot Sync 8530 Contacts

Thanks jsconyers for the suggestion to .csv to gmail, then sync that to the BlackBerry. Experimenting with this, there truly seems to be NO standard from one email contact list to another. Imagine driving to a city where green traffic lights mean stop and every other block one must drive alternatively on the left side then the right side of the road. Well, in the case of address books and contacts lists, every vendor is on a system entirely their own. Coordination and cooperation are nonexistent. It is a mess, and I'm inclined to give up on having any two address books or contacts lists the same. Short of typing everything in manually for each device or email provider, I don't think there is really any so-called synchronizing of data. And I want someone to prove me wrong <grin>.
