Default Noob. How do I...?

Please Login to Remove!

Just got the Pearl today. Got Email going. Entering Faves is hanging after entering 2 numbers, but it works. But my question is this: Can I enter all my contacts' phone numbers and email addresses and other stuff on my pc and synch that to the Pearl? I dl'ed the desktop software. But what app do I use to enter the contacts on my pc to synch it to that software and then to the phone? I use Windows XP Home and Outlook Express for Email. No corporate BB accouts, just POP3 email. My people use Windows IM. Thanks, 'yall are very helpful all the time.

Use Outlook Express to load all your contacts. Type them all into OE and then open Desktop Manager. Go to syncronize and then configuration. Then click Configure Sync and select OE.

Can I select which contacts I want on the Pearl? Right now I have a bunch of email contacts under 2 different email addresses in OE address book but I don't want them all on the phone. Is there somewhere in the ap that I can just enter the stuff I want to synch to the phone? Thanks.

What i would do is use "Outlook"

Create two profiles (outlook) or 2 address books in one profile. Input your contacts and sync what you want.
