Don't use Outlook but want to sync

According to my contact list, they are saved to my hotmail account. I want to sync them and back them up but the only option the desktop manager gives me is to Outlook and I don't use that. What else can I do?

Re: Don't use Outlook but want to sync

Hello,

 

For synchronization via the Desktop Software, this KB governs compatibility:

  • KB12268 Synchronization support for BlackBerry Desktop Software for Windows

For OTA Contact sync, this KB governs compatibility:

  • KB22430 How to enable or disable wireless contact synchronization with BlackBerry Internet Service

Anything outside of those listed as compatible is, of course, not available for synchronization.

 

Good luck!
