PC contacts editing? Any app available?

[ Edited ]

I need to be able to edit my phone contacts (imported from SIM card) and are looking for an app that would allow me to edit them, connected to the Blackberry, on my PC.

 

Any tips?

Please use plain text.

Re: PC contacts editing? Any app available?

Yes, sync your on-device contacts to Outlook or a CSV file, edit on your PC and sync back to your BlackBerry.

Re: PC contacts editing? Any app available?

JSanders, I appreciate your answer, but that is not the solution I am after. I have read about that previously, I did use the search button before post, you know... :smileyhappy: .

I have no Outlook I can use for this, (in any case I use ThunderBird).

 

Seriously, no one made an App for this?

Ah, you didn't tell us we were limited in our answers. :smileywink:

Yes, there are several choices.

 

And editing a CSV file in Excel... how's that work with you?

Got anything against GMail or Yahoo?

Hmm, I must have misread, a csv is of course manageable... Actually I am messing with Windows Contacts, lets see if it is manageable...

 

Thanks.

Why re-create the wheel?

There are already several methods and apps out there which work perfectly, at your finger tips.
