I own the BB7100i and have successfuly installed the Desktop Manager on my Laptop. I have ZERO experience using PDA's and this is my first Blackberry. I have made a back-up of my BB onto my PC but the file is not recognized by any of my programs. Also, the application Finder dealeo doesnt seem to find anything eaither... maybe I'm using it wrong?
My problem is this: how do I find the PIM in my MS Outlook 2003 and sync it to my BlackBerry? .... or to be more specific; how do I sync with Outlook, period?
Once your Desktop software is installed, it should just be a matter of connecting your BB via the sync cable to a USB slot on you computer. Then doubleclick on the Desktop Manager icon on your desktop, and the sync process should start.
All you appointments, tasks, memos and contacts will automatically be synced over to your BB, and they will be listed on the home screen with icons for the individual types of data i.e. Contacts, appointments, etc.
Hope this helps.
