HELP! Downloading Programs to my BlackBerry Pearl

I have a Blackberry Pearl and a Sony Clie PDA (I know it's old) but I have documents and an address book I would love to be able to download onto my Blackberry from my Sony Clie, but can't figure out whether it is possible or not.  Can someone help? 

 

Thanks so much!

Re: HELP! Downloading Programs to my BlackBerry Pearl

Try pairing with bluetooth and transfering the address books from PDA to BB. If that fails then transfer your address book to a outlook and documents in your PC. From your outlook sync addressbook by following process -

  1. Connect your device using Desktop Manager and click on Synchronization
  2. From the menu on the left click Synchronization under Configuration
  3. Again click Synchronization button on the right which will give you option to Select Device Application that you want to synchronize
  4. Put the check mark and you'll get a prompt to Select Desktop Application
  5. Highlight the application name and click next button
  6. Under Synchronization Option you get Direction of Synchronization
  7. Check the radio button with Two way sync 
Note: above mentioned steps are explained as per Desltop Manager 4.5

 

About the Documents just copy them in your media card from where you can read them at your will.

Re: HELP! Downloading Programs to my BlackBerry Pearl

Thanks! I'll give it a try.  What about memos from my PDA to my Black Berry, any suggestions on how to transfer that over?

Re: HELP! Installing Blackberry desktop software

I have just bought a Blackberry Pearl 8100. I have problems installing the software on my Sony Vaio AR51J. I have tried using the CD supplied with the Blackberry and downloading from Blackberry website. Each time I finish with "error message 2738 could not access VBScript runtimefor custom action". Can anyone help - please note that I am no computer wizzkid!

Thanks

Re: HELP! Downloading Programs to my BlackBerry Pearl

This is generally because the vbscript engine on your pc isn't registered. If you are on XP click on the start button then click on run then type cmd and press enter. From the command prompt type cd\ , then type cd windows\system32, then type regsvr32 vbscript.dll and press enter.

Re: HELP! Downloading Programs to my BlackBerry Pearl

It should you might have to run the command prompt as administrator. To do this you have to find the command prompt under programs right click on it and select run as administrator.
