Default Syncing Contacts With Outlook

Please Login to Remove!

I am switching from Blackberry to iphone and need to transfer contacts through Outlook. I have my blackberry synced with outlook and went into configuration settings to make sure its syncing address book with outlook. However, whenever i go into outlook I cannot find any contacts. I have tried to import files and cannot get it to work.

Before playing too much, make sure that you use Desktop manager to BACKUP so that in case the sync goes the wrong way, you don't blank the entries on your phone. Make sure that what I will call the "sync direction" is correct - from device to outlook.

I agree with FF2, run a backup first.
Then, in the Desktop Manager, click Sync, then configuration.
Set the sync to have the handheld over-write the data in Outlook.
Run a sync, then reset it to sync normally.
