Default Please help! Curve 8300-Syncing the "categories" field from my address book to my Mac

Please Login to Remove!

Hi. I am the proud owner of a Curve 8300 which I love dearly. I always used PCs, but now I just bought an iMac and have successfully synced my Address book data to Mac's Address book and also to Microsoft Entourage. However, I still have an urgent problem. None of the data from the "categories" field in my blackberry address book were synced, which was my initial goal for syncing in the first place!

Categories are very important to me, as my career is such that I need to constantly update the categories list, and doing so using a platform such as outlook or entourage saves countless hours, compared to doing so on the blackberry itself. I never had a problem with this on my PC while using outlook, but now I do.

I urgently need to solve this problem. If anybody could help me find a way to sync the "category" information from my blackberry to entourage, I would be most grateful.

Thank you so much for your help!

Sincerely,
Jeff

When I setup Categories in Outlook 2007, they showed up as filters within the address book.

Do you have any filters in your BlackBerry Address Book?

I'm confused by the question. Yes, I have the "filters" feature in my address book, but It wasn't turned on when I synced...

Do the categories in Outlook, show up as Filters in your BlackBerry Contacts?

Then your Outlook categories are synching as filters in your BlackBerry.
If you select the filter you want to view it will limit your address book to only those people in that filter/category.

Is that what you are trying to accomplish?

As of now, Macs don't sync categories. Maybe in a future release of Desktop Manager for Mac.
