Re: Welcome to the forums!

Hi

 

This is my first time on a forum, so excuse for any mistakes.

First i'll introduce myself, i am a dutch girl and i have a BlackBerry 8900 Curve, unfortunally no longer with internet since i've moved to spain. I still have a dutch number and i like to keep it that way. Although i've got my phone for (approx) 2 or 3 years, i never took time to sync it with my laptop. But now i did, because i want a list of all my adresses and not the email adresses, but all the names and numbers on my phone. So i've installed and updated the software, but now i can find the information i'm looking for on my laptop. My laptop runs on vista. I have searched the forums but i can't find it.

The device manager gives three options to sync my adresses with (hoping that those are the adresses i want)

Option 1 Windows Vista Native Application

Option 2 ASCII Importer/Exporter 

Option 3 Yahoo!

Haven't got a clue what the first and the second options are... and i don't use Yahoo. 

The thrid one got me thinking it is about email adresses and not all the names and numbers... So now i tried the first option, and all went well.. Accept the fact that i can't find the info (or list) anywhere. 

I do hope you or someone can help me, and sorry but this is all new to me. 

I also hope you understand me, and my english.

Thanks alot.

Re: Welcome to the forums!

Thank you very very much! Funny thing is i tried it before but there was nothing there. After your post i did another sync to see if that would work...and it was there! Great. I don't know why is wasn't there before.

Re: Welcome to the forums!

Hi folks, this is my first time in this forum as well.  I just did buy my Playbook the the other day, so it will take time to learn this device.  I'm about to load the android capability, but wonder before I do if it's safe and will not mess up the OS ?

Not sure what you're speaking of "Android capability"? What is it you are loading?

Re: Welcome to the forums!

I think you should wait and first up date the playbook with the new software is really good! Also,if I were you I would just pick what I really need, nuw software is very good. Down loading something else I do not recomend that well ,you can get some virus,my playbook is really secure.
