Use Desktop Manager to synchronize your BB with Outlook.
There probably is a simpler way of doing this but I can't think of it at the moment.
Well, by importing the CSV file to Outlook and then syncing with Desktop Manager you actually sync the data in one-way. I tried to do so, but I did not finished because I wanted to import the synced file to Gmail contacts. To avoid duplicates, I tried to delete all the Gmail contacts and got a message saying that you cannot delete more than 20 contacts simultaneously. So it becomes painful to delete a large address book.
I do not know an efficient way yet to sync Gmail contacts with my Pearl. If anybody is aware of a good method, please let us all know.
