Help with contacts

Ok I have an e-mail address that is work related and is only available when I am connected to my WIFI at work. the email works great but,  I cannot figure out how to get my contacts into the PB contacts. I have about 400 contacts and it will take forever to manually enter them.

 

any suggestions

Re: Help with contacts

There are a couple of workarounds for this, but first, where are your contacts stored now?

On your laptop? Handwritten on stacks of paper sitting on your laptop?  :smileywink:

Or in a some other software IN your laptop?

Re: Help with contacts

lol, gotcha.

 

The following applications are supported for synchronization with BlackBerry® Desktop Software 7.1:

  • IBM® Lotus Notes® 6.5, 7, 8, and 8.5
  • Microsoft® Outlook® 2003, 2007, 2010 (32-bit & 64-bit modes)
  • Microsoft® Outlook® Express
  • Windows Calendar (Windows Vista)
  • Windows Contacts (Windows Vista, Windows 7)

 

Once you install the BlackBerry Desktop Software, click on the Organizer button and you will be prompted to set up the app for sync.
