| | Need To Backup an 8703e and a Storm On The Same Computer
Please Login to Remove!
I am thinking about a Blackberry Storm. I presently have an 8703e which I want to also continue using.
I was told that the Storm will not work with the PC sync software Version 4.2, or even the highest version for the 8703e.
Also, I have an old version of Office (Outlook), and the new Storm sync software will not work with the version I have.
If I forget about using Office Outlook for syncing, can I back up the address book to Outlook Express?
If I save the Blackberry addresses and appointments to an ASCII file, will this work okay?
The next interesting question is, can I use the 8703e with PC sync Version 4.6 software?
What I cannot understand is why could RIM not make their softwares compatible to work with all their devices? This puts user limitations on their products. Normaly I would expect downword compatibility.
To run out and buy a new Office program when the one you have is working for what you want to do is very expensive.
What I am going to have is a single computer where I would like to be able to save the data from both an 8703e and a Storm. I am trying to work out a workable solution. Apparently, I was told that I cannot run two versions of this software on the same computer.
