Re: HOW TO OPEN A BBB FILE ?

And again, the best way to view your contact list on your comouter is to sync your contact list. When you use your BlackBerry Desktop Software to sync your contact list to Microsoft Outlook, you can open Outloon and view your contact list there. Or, if you sync your contacts with your email service, you can log into your email service via your computer and view your contacts there. Note: once you've synced your contacts to Outlook or your email service, you can extract your contact list to a file that can be opened in Excel.

Re: HOW TO OPEN A BBB FILE ?

Ok, thanks for that extra info. Since you use a Hotmail email address, do the following:

Go to Setup > Email Accounts. Find your Hotmail account, then press the BB Menu button and select Edit. Go to the Synchronization tab and select the option to sync your contacts. Save the settings and your BlackBerry should then start the synching process.

Once that's complete. You can simply log into your Hotmail account and go to the address book there. All of your contacts will be listed there. If you need to make any changes, you can do so and those changes should sync back to your BlackBerry.

If you need to see the contacts on your computer in another way, let me know.

Also, just to add, in order to see contacts on your computer, you do typically need to have some sort of Address Book software installed on your computer. Its really easy when you have a compatible address book software... Bit more complicated when you don't.

Re: HOW TO OPEN A BBB FILE ?

but there is no sync your contact list button ? My organizer data , which I only want to sync does not allow me to sync my contacts as it is blocked ( its says wireless sync )

I don't have outlook . If I install outlook on to my PC then what do i do with my hotmail . I am just a hotmail oldtimer !

Re: HOW TO OPEN A BBB FILE ?

The phone numbers will be synced as well. Have you tried it? I ended up doing this myself with my Hotmail account. I did have to clean some things up, but Hotmail was able to handle most of that automatically for me.

Maybe I'm not understanding why you're getting so frustrated, but I have provided an alternative using the info you provided which doesn't require using any extra software and can keep all your contact info somewhere where you can access it from any internet capable device (computer, phone, tablet or other).

I hope this info will help out. Please try it out and then get back to us.

[ Edited ]

Sorry, it's not a phone. It's a smartphone. A BlackBerry to be specific, which does much more than call people.

 

We've each given you several options to view the contacts on your PC or desktop, which do you prefer?

 

Good, you got it now. Go enjoy that drink.
