Desktop Manager Software - Syncing Contacts

Currently my Blackberry is setup to sync contacts with Microsoft Outlook. However, I don't want all my outlook contacts to sync, only a subset. Is there a way to block certain contacts from syncing?


Thanking you in advance.

Re: Desktop Manager Software - Syncing Contacts

Create a separate folder in your contacts folder. Now if you want to centain contacts not be synced with BlackBerry then move them in that newly created folder. Why manual sunchronization with device select the folder that data you want to sync with your handheld.



Example: Synchronize addressbook -


Connect you HH with your desktop Manager in your PC. If you device is set to wireless sync then you need to turn off wireless synchronization. To do so go to Address Book -> click Menu -> Options -> Wireless Synchronization: No -> click Menu and Save the changes.


Click on the Synchronize button on Desktop Manager -> Click on Configuration Tab then click on Configure Synchronization -> Click on Choose under Address Book (on the right side of the pop up window) -> Click on you organizer apps (like, MS outlook, Lotus notes etc) -> Select desired apps -> select Synchronization radio button and click OK twice go back to Synchronize tab ->click on Synchronize Now.
