This is the most commonly described method that I have been able to find. However, there are several issues and questions I have with this method.
I have upgraded from a Nextel i830 to the 7520. SOME of my contacts are on both Outlook AND the i830 SIM. NONE of my Outlook contacts have DC numbers entered.
I want to somehow MERGE the two lists.
Moto's Phone Book Manager only lets you save the file as a database file, not a CSV file. But Outlook can import both types. My issue is that upon importing, you must map the fields.
The problem is that the i830 list has a seperate listing for each number that I had for a contact. For example, a contact has a home, office, DC, etc. number. This shows up as seperate listings in the i830 database. Outlook brings in each as a SEPERATE contact entry. It DOES NOT merge the fields for each contact.
Has anyone actually gone through what I am trying to do?
BTW, the old i830 SIM has been deactivated.
