Exclamation Synching Contacts w/ AOL 9.0

Please Login to Remove!

I read the blog entry about synching Outlook with my BB 9250. Now I am challenged by synching my BB with AOL Contacts. Since AOL isn't very "smart" and friendly, I havent had any luck.

Has anyone tried doing this? Successfully? How?

Or Synching AOL 9.0 with Outlook? then I could do the BB synch.

H e l p

Sincerely,

A BB nub

As far as I know, it is not possible to sync AOL contacts directly with a BlackBerry. Syncing AOL contacts to Outlook would be a work around, but I dont know how to do that either. What blog entry are you getting this information from?

I cant post the url to the blog due to the forum rules. Thats a pretty weak rule.
Here is the thread title: Syncing misc Outlook Contact fields
Posted by Ideasmiths on Sunday. Good stuff.

Thanks for your input d_fish!

That rule prevents spammers from posting links.

Thumbs down

With moderators constantly reviewing the threads and having the ability to disable accounts or deleting posts it also hurts non-spammers. So what happens when a spammer makes 10 posts? The emperor has no clothes.
