You might want to start out by reading up on the basics of the BB world. There is an excellent set of data located here:

You should have received an application disk with the phone, called "Blackberry User Tools", containing companion applications. One of these is Blackberry Desktop Manager, which will allow you to synchronize your phone's contacts list with the contacts folder of your PIM on your computer (I am using MS Outlook, and it works very well).
The BDM is NOT like the Palm desktop in that it is not a "mini-PIM". BDM is a bridging connection that allows you to synchronize contacts and other PIM data from another program, but does not store that data itself.
I hope this helps.
