Unhappy Getting your contacts from Outlook onto your Bold

Please Login to Remove!

Alright hello everyone, I just got the Bold today, and im a TOTAL noob.

I previously had the iPhone and upon selling it, I uploaded all my contacts onto the Address Book in windows under Accessories, and uploaded all of my contacts onto that.
Ive been reading everywhere about using microsoft Outlook too convert everything to .cvs so I used Outlook Express and imported and everything and have the .CVS file on my desktop with all my contacts.

I've tryed everything with the synchronization and the desktop manager and I need a STEP-BY-STEP guide on how to get my contacts onto my Bold, I have over 300 contacts and I REALLY dont want to manually add all of them in

THANKS so much for your help

What you need to do is actually have the contacts in Outlook to transfer them to your BB via the DM.

Or, upload them to google contacts and sync them to the BlackBerry™ via gsync

Outlook or Outlook Express will sync with the BB using Desktop Manger. If you have Outlook 2000 or earlier, you will need DM 4.2 SP3/SP3 and if you have a later version use DM 4.6 or 4.7.
