After beating my head against the wall over syncing my BB with Thunderbird for some time, I finally figured a way to do it without paying for a service. ScooterG is on track with using Google's sync application, but the add-on I added through Thunderbird didn't do the trick for me.
I take my address book on Thunderbird and export it to a .csv file. The issue is the fields shown across the top of the EXCEL sheet do not match the address book inside of g-mail. So export an address book from g-mail to a .csv file as well, you can use that one as a reference to see where g-mail's fields are. Then cut and paste the fields on the Thunderbird .csv file so it matches the same fields as on g-mail. Once you are done, go to g-mail and import the Thunderbird .csv file so all of your contacts are in your g-mail account. Once you are done you can use the google sync application to get the contacts to your BB.
For the google sync application, just go to g-mail and search sync, it will get you there.
It may look complicated, it isn't at all if I can do it. Just a few steps to go through, but it's worth it.
