gmail contact sync

I have previously synced my contacts with Outlook using Desktop software. I now want to sync contacts with my gmail contacts instead.  How do I delete the outlook contacts and replace them with the gmail contacts? I changed defaults on my Bold to gmail contacts but cannot get them to sync.   Frustrating!!

Re: gmail contact sync

Hi Gleebo

 

You must remove the Outlook email account

If you want to sync gmail contacts on your Blackberry you must add the email account gmail

As you can also use the Google Syn application for your Blackberry.

Re: gmail contact sync

Thank you gutijose 14.  Some further questions :

On my Bold I now have 2 email accounts - msn and gmail.  Are you saying that I should delete the msn account?

When I do that, will the contacts on my Bold be erased, or must I do that too?  If I have to erase them, should I do this through the Desktop Software or on my device?  Once this is done, if I set my sync default to my exisitng gmail account, will my gmail contacts automatically sync or do I have to use the Desktop software?

I cannot use the Google Sync app as I believe Google has stopped supporting it.

Thanks again for your help.

Gleebo
