Default Address book transfer

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys wasup...

I am trying to organize my address book in my 8130, now doing it one by one through my BB itself is quite annoying, so I would like to export it all to my pc and import back from my pc, now I used Outlook, and the addresses, work addresses and such don't align, what is the best program or method to have everything neatly organized from pc to BB, and/or BB to pc?

Options I get is outlook and asciii? What's the difference and which is better?

Seriously, Outlook is probably the optimal solution. I don't have a clue why the fields aren't matching up blackberry to Outlook and vice versa. (Maybe someone else will have a suggestion.)

By the way, the ASCII option is just that: sync to an ascii file. The Outlook option syncs with the Outlook pst file.

I had the same problem. I ended up going into Outlook and going into each record and having to cut and paste into the correct place. It was much faster than doing it on the BlackBerry and didn't take as long as I thought it would.

It works, I don't know what you don't have set correctly, but it works. In your sync setup in Desltop Manager, make sure you have Outlook set to sync in Calendar, Memos, Address Book and Tasks.

Good luck.

In mine, Outlook won't even show up as an option for sync - not with the calendar, tasks, address book, or anything. It was showing up for everything BUT the contact list - but now it's not- How do I fix that?
