Synchronize with Nokia N95 or Outlook

I just bought an BB bold and now I want to transfer the data from my old smartphone (a nokia 95) to my BB.. I have tried the device switch wizard - switch from another device to a blackberry device and two options are than displayed (1. palm, 2. windows mobile software). Both are not clickable eventhough both the BB as the Nokia n95 are connected to the computer. I know my N95 is not running on either palm or windows mobile but there must be a way to transfer the date anyways..

I have also tried to use Outlook but my BB doesn't want to sync.. I have clicked on the contacts and told him to sync it but there are no contacts coming in.. The agenda is an even bigger problem because I can't choose windows outlook, only options offerd are yahoo and ASCII importer/exporter..

 

I really need some help cause i'm getting desperate here..

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure the Desktop Manager will transfer information from a non-Windows Mobile, or Palm based phone.

That phone can sync with Outlook though? If so you have all of the data you need in Outlook, but you just need help syncing between Outlook and the BlackBerry?

 

What version of Windows are you running? Which version of Outlook do you have? The version of the Desktop Manager you can have depends on the version of Outlook you have:

    * Outlook 2000 - compatible only up to Desktop Manager 4.2 SP2
    * Outlook 2002/2003/2007 - compatible with Desktop Manager 4.3+

So if you have to download a later version of the software you can do so by clicking on this link

After you download the software you can go into the Synchronization icon to setup the sync options with Outlook

Re: Synchronize with Nokia N95 or Outlook

Sorry, in some kind of way i missed the last part.

I'm using windows vista and window mail and agenda Version 6.0.6000.16386 (vista_rtm.061101-2205) and blackberry desktop manager v4.6.

Feel like a total noob right now but I thought that should match..

 

btw, thanks for helping Smiley Happy

Re: Synchronize with Nokia N95 or Outlook

In your previous post you said you're using Outlook. Are you using Windows Mail or Outlook on the computer? I don't beleive the Desktop Manager can sync with Windows Calendar.

 

Check out this link for the programs that the Desktop Manager can sync with. It's in the "Organizer Support" section.
