Default Import Address Book from Excel

Please Login to Remove!

So I just got fired from my job, and when they wiped my BB off their BES it took all my numbers with it. I back up my numbers quite often, so I have an Excel file with all of my contacts. I don't have Office at Home, so how do I get them onto my BB besides going one by one and entering them?

1- Import Excel file into Outlook, and sync to the BB. <- easiest.
or
2- Save Excel file as CSV file, and sync to the BB

Sorry to hear of the job loss.

Being that I'm also pretty dumb, how would I sync from the CSV to the BB?
