Default Import Contacts into Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

Hello there,

Hoping someone can give a hand. I have a i-90c Nextel and trying to get the contacts over to a Blackberry without having to do by hand. I have them in Excel or Access. Then can import into a Outlook Contact folder.
Without the BES software is there a way to move these contacts into the Blackberry?

Thanks for any ideas.

Christine

You just use BlackBerry Desktop to synchronize Outlook to the BlackBerry, over the USB cable. No BES needed for that.

So anything you are able to import into Outlook Contacts, you should be fine.

Thanks very much Mark. I had a salesman try to tell me no it could not be done without the software. Glad I stopped by.

BlackBerry Desktop is a free download from RIM.

Your BlackBerry should come with a CD that has the software.

Yes, you will get enhanced features with a Blackberry Enterprise Server ... but you don't need it if all you are is an individual and just need to synchronize one computer with one BlackBerry.
