Default Enter addresses from the desktop possible without Outlook?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Is there a way to enter addresses to the address book (or calendar entries for that matter) from my desktop computer without using Outlook? On my Motorola phones there's an application you can use for this (Mobile Phone Tools), but for Blackberry I have not been able to find something similar.

Start Desktop Manager and open Intellisync. Click on Configure PIM. You can look around and see what Intellisync will allow you to sync with (the vast majority of people use Outlook). Your options are extremely limited.

Thanks. I know that the sync options are limited, but I was actually looking for a way to add to the address book directly using my desktop computer instead of adding it using the BB itself. I guess that's not possible?

You can look (and write down) at the fields IntelliSync uses for an ASCII file and use Notepad to create one. Put commas between field values and commas wher you don't have a value. Then set Intellisync to ASCII Import and Export. PM me if you need a sample file. I check in about once a day so will get back as soon as possible.
