Default Importing Outlook Contact to Specific Category on BB 8310

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,
Was able to import contacts from my home computer to my 8310 device via Blackberry Desktop Manager Software included with device...
I have hundreds of Outlook Business Contacts on my work computer that I also need to import to my phone address book... I understand how to filter the categories on the phone to view either personal contacts or business contacts or whatever category I choose but do not know how to import all my biz contacts(outlook) from my work computer to a single category on my phone all at once...
Can anyone provide instructions to transfer all my outlook biz contacts at once to a specific category on my phone(business) so I can then keep my pers and biz separate?

I know how to organze each contact individually to a category but this would be way too tedious for hundreds of contacts

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks




Also, is there a way to pick and choose certain outlook contacts to import if you do not want to import all outlook contacts on your computer to your phone? Ideally, I would only want to import a select group of contacts

Adding a category to the business contacts is the only thing you can do. And doing it in Outlook is much easier than doing it on the BB.

Those Outlook contacts you wish NOT to import, move to a subfolder in Outlook... create one called "not synced" or the such. The BB and DM will only import those contacts in the Main contact folder.
