My Device: BOLD 9650

Syncing bold 9650 to Vista and Win 7 laptops

Now I have a new problem . I bought a new laptop MS win 7, and I want to sync my BB bold 9650 to this and my old DELL  Vista OS

 

I had to DLoad  Desktop Software ver 7.1.0  Bun 33  cause its all I could find at the time .   Found some ver 6.1.0 but they were not from Bb so did not want to download

 

When I sync my Bold with the Old DELL Vista  the first 150 of my contacts got corrupted .  It appears that the full NAME  filed was moved to the company  field and now

when i look at contacts in Address card I see nothing on the top line.

 

If I look at them in Business card view ,  I can se them but that is not the best way for me to be able to see them all easily .

 

I tried unistalling and reverting to an earlier DM ver 6.1.0 that I had before but that got corrupted and I am back to version 7.1. 0  Ver 7 dooes not use Intellisync so it syncs differently now

 

AT some point I deleted all the contacts on the device  and transferred them via Out look one way sync .

 

I had backed them up before  so I used that to send them to device.

 

Now I dont know how to map fields in BB to match outlook 2007 and if that was the problem why did only 100+ contacts have the field changed. 

 

I could go through the 100+ contacts and copy paste "company " filed into name filed if there is no other way but I am afraid it will happen again if i don't figure out what caused it in the first place.

 

Is there a solution , and how do I map fileds in Outlook to sync properly with BB DM Ver 7.1.0 .   I mapped them all correctly a few years ago when I converted from Palm to BB . Was basically trouble free for a long time 

 

Thanks

P.S. I have heard people having problems with Win 7 sync and I have even touched that yet

Re: Syncing bold 9650 to Vista and Win 7 laptops

Unintalled and reinstalled . What I see when i go into advanced sync of contacts , fields >  the first name , last name,

company name, fields  are greyed out 

 

 

 I just cheked the new Win 7 laptop and the fileds are greyed out there also 

So i dont belive all is well . Maybe they are not syncing all ?

 

 I just synced after deleting one contact in outlook on my laptop and I see its still on my phone

 

this ver 7.1.0 suxx Have to find an earlier version that is not corrupted
