Question Any way to add/delete/edit contacts from pc?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello!
sorry for my noobness but is there a software that can add/edit/delete contacts in my 8900 from the pc? Like Nokia's pc suite? I see nothing similar on DM.
Thanks in advance for any help!

Outlook is very popular.

Not sure what your actual dilemma is but if your contacts got screwed up in the transfer process and you want to fix them or you want to reorganize the information - this is a great program.

ABC Amber Blackberry Editor http://www.processtext.com/abcblackberryipdeditor.html


Just backup your contacts with DM then upload the ibd file with the Editor.
Fix them the way you want and save the ibd file.
Reload the file into your contacts. (Note - I have a habit of backing up my contacts twice when I am editing them just in case the one I am working on crashes)

I just want a straight-forward application like nokia has:
connect phone -> load contacts on pc -> edit them -> upload to phone...
no outloook - easy done
is there something similar in bb's software for pc? sadly I cannot post a screenshot of pc-suite, I must have more than 10 posts here.... !!!

If you have a google account, you can use google sync and have the phone mated up with your google contacts.

Outlook Express can also be used for contacts.

keropi - there is no Nokia PC Suite / Palm Desktop equivalent. Many use Outlook and then sync through the included Intellisyc option in Desktop Manager. Google Sync works well for others. But there is no desktop tool.

Outlook is a very "straightforward" application.
