Synchronize Contacts

Having just bought my BB Bold, I have managed to get emails from my PC automatically onto my BB Bold - but I do not know how to download/sync my Windows Contacts to my BB Bold. I've checked the manuals and internet but there is no proper detail on this. (I also need to Sync my Windows Calendar).

 

Thanks in advance !!

Re: Synchronize Contacts

The following steps will help you to configure synchronization -
  1. Connect your device using Desktop Manager and click on Synchronization
  2. From the menu on the left click Synchronization under Configuration
  3. Again click Synchronization button on the right which will give you option to Select Device Application that you want to synchronize
  4. Put the check mark and you'll get a prompt to Select Desktop Application
  5. Highlight the application name and click next button
  6. Under Synchronization Option you get Direction of Synchronization
  7. Check the radio button with Two way sync 
Note: above mentioned steps are explained as per Desltop Manager 4.5

 

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.

Re: Synchronize Contacts

I've turned of the Wireless Sync

 

1. When I've tried to 'check' the Address Book option it has given me a few options. I've choosen 'Windows Address Book/Mail' - asthis is the nearest to the application I have 'Wimdows Contacts' (my email is 'Windows Email'- a separate application to 'Windows Contacts' (with vista).

 

After selecting this, nothing happens a there is no attempt to copy and contacts across (I have around 900 contacts)

Re: Synchronize Contacts

I do not have Windows Outlook but the default program with windows - 'Windows Email'.

 

I am also trying mainly to Sync 'Windows Contacts' with my BB Bold. 

 

So will this program work ?

Re: Synchronize Contacts

Thanks Tanzim - contacts now snyc'd (had to disconnect and reconnect - then it stated the syncing process).

 

Still can't get Windows Calendar to sync - as when you 'check' the Calendar bos, subsequently it only asks whether you what to select an ASCII application
