Create contacts list on PC

How do I create a contacts list on my PC and load it to my 9850 Torch?

I want to use the large keyboard and copy&paste features on the PC rather than on the BB

Re: Create contacts list on PC

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

The best way, IMHO, is to use a compatible PC Desktop Organizer app:

  • KB12268Applications supported by BlackBerry Desktop Software for Windows for synchronization

Put all of your contacts (and calendar, too!) in there, and then configure synchronization with your BB:

  • KB03315 How to synchronize organizer data (calendar, task list, memo list, and contact list) using the BlackBerry Desktop Software

An alternative is to create a spreadsheet (e.g., Excel) of your data, save it as CSV, and then import that into your BB:

  • KB11194 How to import contacts from an already created CSV file to the BlackBerry smartphone

 

Good luck!
