Adding Contacts on Computer

Is there a way to created new contacts on the computer and then transfer them into the Blzackberry. I just purchased a new 9630 but am unable to transfer my  contacts from my old cell phone to the blackberry (I do not have access to a Verizon store where I can pay $10 and have them transfer for me). I have a LOT of contacts to transfer and it will take forever to create them on the 9630. I do use Outlook Express and have loaded the desktop software 5.0.

Re: Adding Contacts on Computer

knottyrope,

 

Thanks for the link; however, I  am running on Outlook 2003. Are you saying I can go into the Address Book in Outlook and create all the  contacts I had on my old phone and then there is a way in the Backberry desktop software to transfer all those contact into the Blackberry?

That is correct. And when done you can bi directional sync new entries too.
