Default Need some help with synch contacts

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys.. I know I should do my research first and I did, however, I wasnt exactly able to find the answer I was looking for.

I have a 7130c and use Outlook to Synch all my contacts. I have a questions though..

I see 3 options when I can sync my contacts into Outlook:

Import (into Handeld)
Export (from handeld)
Synchronize

Now, I already have my contacts on my phone and I have my contacts on Outlook.

What I would like to know is which option to use in what scenario.

1) For example, I edited a contact on Outlook, and want that edit to reflect on my handheld? (so far, I have only been able to duplicate the contact and not actually have the edit appear on my BB, but rather have John x and John appear on my BB, while having just John on my Outlook)

2) I deleted a contact on my BB and want that deletion to appear on my Outlook contacts?

I might be making this more difficult than it actually is, however, up until now, I have doubled and trippled contacts in my BB from synching due to editing in my BB and Outlook.

I would really appreciate some clarifications on the whole synching issue, if someone could be so kind as to help me out.

Thanks in advance guys.

1-Don't know. You obviously have something set oddly. IF I WERE YOU, and having these problems, I would just delete ALL your BB contacts and start over with a clean sync from Outlook. I am thinking your have something in the name field different that is not allowing the records to sync, and instead adding a new duplicate record.

2-Won't do on BIS. If you are BES, yes.

Ok.. non of these answers have really helped me.

I want to know what options out of the 3 I choose for different scenarios.. Like what option do I choose if I want to synch a certain way.

For example.. Right now, I want to change the number on 3 of my contacts. If i change the number in Outlook with the respective contact, which option do I choose so that the change reflects in my BB...

Please help.

SaschaBB7130c,

Maybe this will help a little. When using DTM are this.

Import - when you would like to use DTM to import from Outlook, or another file, to the BB

Export - hwne you would like to export from the BB to Outlook, Notes, etc..

Synchronize - when you woud like the 2 to mirror each other
