Add or edit address book using Desktop Manager

Is there any way that I can add or edit my address book using the Desktop software? I would like to input email addresses and other information into my address book on my blackberry without having to type everything in on the blackberry. I was hoping there would be a way to do that on my PC and have it sync to my phone.

Re: Add or edit address book using Desktop Manager

Yes, via Outlook or Outlook Express, you can sync your BB to your PC, via Desktop Manager.

 

Edit your information in Outlook or Express, and sync back. Express does not have the caledar functions, Outlook does.
