Default How do i save my address book on my desktop?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey there folks,

I'm new to my blackberry, and i wanted to save all the contacts on my Blackberry's address book onto my desktop. Doesnt matter in what format (wordpad, excel, .txt)...but i just want to be able to print it out.
plus, moving my notes onto my desktop would be awsome too.
Thanks a bunch!

The only way you would be able to do this is to sync you BlackBerry with one of the supported address book applications and export it from there. If you look in the address book options within the Desktop Manager it looks like the following address books are supported.
  • ACT! 4.0.2/2000/6.0
  • ASCII Importer/Explorer
  • GroupWise 6.0.x/6.5
  • Lotus Notes 5.0/6.0/6.5
  • Lotus Organizer 5.0/6.0
  • MS Outlook
  • Netscape
  • Outlook Express 4.0-6.0

Remember, please try searching first!

Need a screenshot? ... Like JavaLoader?
Try using BBscreen .....Use JL_Cmder!
or BBScreenShooter!
