Default Phonebook Manager

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone, I hope that this is the correct forum for this question.

My company just switched from Nextel I830's to BB 7520's. We are in the process of setting up the Enterprise software. My question is, when we used the I830 there was a phonebook manager that we could use to view all our contacts and update them on our pc, then the changes were sent back to the I830 via a USB cable. Is there any such program out there for the 7520? Thanks!

It is called "Outlook".

I suggest you read the Sticky Threads at the top of the General BlackBerry discussion and see how Outlook is used to sync up contacts, calendar, notes and tasks. With BES 4.0, it is wireless. Without, you use the included USB cable and Intellisync.

Leave it to a MOD to try and make a Newbie feel stupid. There is a reason I posted in the Aftermarket Software forum, I am looking for aftermarket software, not Outlook. Thanks for the quick lack-luster answer Captain Obvious. Feel free to ban me now.

I don't see any "trying" displayed by the MOD. He surely explained where you could find information for an aftermarket application. Last I checked Outlook did not come with my BB. Therefor Outlook is aftermarket.

I could forsee you getting banned, not because you can't distinguish the obvious, but because of your attitude.

It may be in your best interest to take the above statement and put it to use. Read, you may find something posted that a person replying may not have seen.

Correct, it does not come on a BB, but it does come standard, or as an option on most PC's. We use Lotus notes and the interface is not too user friendly when you have 100+ numbers to enter, as well as it does not support entering a Direct Connect number. Sorry for the attitude, but it was an un-insightful answer.

Let's see - you did not give any useful information in your post (Hi - we use Lotus Notes and I was wondering if there was a better desktop program to enter information on), so I suggested Outlook.

And that's un-insightful. Sorry.

And I didn't make you look stupid...

Try the same search, but for Notes. Also try checking into your blackberry desktop manager software.

Again sorry for the attitude, I should have posted more particulars, but anyone can search and find obvious answers. Being a Mod, you could have asked me to clarify a few things. I did mention that we just made a switch to BB's, and that our Enterprise software was not set up yet.

Not to step into the middle of a dooky slinging match, but I personnally wish there was an application similiar to what was available on the IDEN phones to update and upload address book entries to the BB's. I don't like using Outlook personally. I have also been frustrated by the fact that there is no obvious way to import your SIM Address book into the BB address book..

If I make a change in my phone book on my 7290 and sync with Outlook it makes the changes in Outlook.

There is a way, depending on what type of Blackberry that your going to be using. IDEN phones such as a two digit phone (i90c, i95cl,i60c), you can transfer info to a Blackberry 7520 using the sim contact manager that is in the address book on the BB. If your going to be using a 7100, you need to transfer your cantacts to a 3 digit sim card using are simcard reader (Part SIMGU900CR) then place the yellow sim card into the new device and use the copy sim to address book in the device. I do it for customers all the time that are not going to be using Outlook at that time, or they don't have their laptops with them. Thanks
