Adding Contacts

I just got my new Curve yesterday - first blackberry and needless to say I am confused. Is there a way I can add and edit contacts into my address book from my computer and then sync them into my phone?

Re: Adding Contacts

Certainly, through MS Outlook and sync back to your BB. If you don't have Outlook, then Outlook Express will work for contacts as well.
