That link is for how to import addresses into Gmail, not out of Gmail.  I poked around a little bit and discovered I need to export my addresses into a csv file, which I did.  Now I'm just figuring out how to import the csv to the bb.

Hi,

Sorry I read the post that you wanted to go the opposite way!

Do you use outlook?

Re: How can I sync my gamma CONTACTS to my Blackberry Curve?

Okay, I went to my gmail account, you basically have two options a .csv file or a vcard file, neither of which I beleive can be imported via the Desktop Manager, without Outlook.

Please leave this open so a real SMART person, can give you a better answer :smileyhappy:

Re: How can I sync my gamma CONTACTS to my Blackberry Curve?

hello,

you have the hard way : use a paid service as a middleware between GMail and your blackberry :

or you can wait for that developper to finish his application GMail - Bladckberry contact sync :
