Hi and welcome to the forums!

you can find it here:

 

https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22

 

If you go to the grey tab on the top of the page marked software that is where it is. I recommend using Ver 4.5

without the media manager. If you do a search on the media manager on this site, well just say it's not held in HIGH REGARD :smileyhappy:

Please let me know if you need anything else.

If this answers your question, please take a minute to resolve the thread using the options to the right.

Thanks

Re: Lost my Blackberry CD

You have the answer in your PC! You just downloaded it. :smileyhappy:

The desktop manager is the program that lets the BB and the PC stay in sync. It also backs up and restores the software on the BB, and loads applications to the BB.

What PC , operating system and what calender are you using?

Let me know!

Re: Lost my Blackberry CD

Ok,

The one I would recommend is Outlook. It is very compatible with the desktop manager, and is a windows product which goes with your operating system. The Vista Windows calendar is not compatible with DM software. So you would not be able to sync both contacts and calendar. Outlook is extremely easy to use on the PC side.

There are other options with Gmail and Yahoo both have integrated contacts and calendars that can be synced.

Leave this thread open so you can get a good range of opinion on the subject from everybody on the forum. In the meant time look into Google and Yahoo and their capabilities. Also use the search box in the upper left hand corner and see what types of packages and issues people here use.

Sound Good?

Outlook 2003 is supported, outlook express isn't. I'll get you a link of supported applications

be right back.

 

Here is a link of the supported programs. 2003 is extremely stable and has been very compatible with DM.
