After months of working my way through the innumerable suggestions in these forums and elsewhere, I've given up on BB Link. It just won't sync my Outlook Contacts with my Q10 and I've now spend quite long enough trying. Right now, I'm using BB Desktop to back up my Contacts to my old Torch which I'm using effectively as a standalone address book. (For security reasons, I cannot sync my Contacts OTA with my Q10.) But this is a cumbersome arrangement. Is there any way I can simply copy over my .pst Outlook contacts file (I mean the backup .pst file on my laptop of all my Outlook Contacts) to my Q10 and then import those Contacts into my Q10?

But what is the issue that you have when your are trying to sync. Do you have a failed to commit chages error message ?? or another error message. Might be that there is a solution, looking the corrupted entries on the log files.
And Answering your question, no there is no way to do that, or at least not a solution that i am aware off.
Waiting for your answer !! break a leg !!

Essentially what happens is that, at the end of an apparently successful sync, I get the message "Preparing sync preview" and then my machime freezes. And if I get any message at all, then, yes, I get "Sync was unsuccessful. Failed to commit changes to device". If you know how to solve this, great. But I should say that lots of people in these and other forums have -- over many months -- suggested possible remedies and none of them have worked. But if you have a magic solution, wonderful.

Tx very much BBcrack, will try it. One question about the time-consuming option before I take it. Will it create duplicate entries on my Q10? I've already got a lot of Outlook contacts on the Q10: my greatest need is to be able to sync regularly because, of course, a number of these contact details change -- sometimes quite rapidly. I would like to avoid having multiple entries for the same contact?

Its not a perfect solution but it you start getting duplicates in Outlook after each sync as I did then I run a free utility called ODIR which strips out the Outlook duplicates and returns it to normal
