Re: Can't Import Contacts to Computer

I believe I successfuly imported contacts to my computer, but now I can't find them. I could't find instructions in the manual.

Re: Can't Import Contacts to Computer

Did you follow the instructions in sync?

If so they should be added to Outlook.

 

If not, reset your  sync options to one way from BB to Outlook

Thanks
