View Full Version : outlook synchronizing with groups

03-20-2007, 07:13 PM
Hello everyone.

Very new at this and I could use some advice. I am doing some research on the 8703 before I buy it and need to know this before I will buy.

Right now I have about 8 categories or groups in outlook with about 700 contacts. Will the BB allow me to sync with outlook and keep the contacts in their respective groups?

The different service providers I have spoken to say it can't be done! Can this be true? I am told it is no problem with the treo.

Please help!!

Groups do not sync to the BlackBerry. You would have to recreate the groups manually on the BlackBerry.

is there a limit to how many groups I can manually create?

There is no limit (that I know of) that you can create on the BB. Be aware that "groups" on a blackberry is quite different than "groups" in MS Outlook.
