Re: Upload contacts in Excel to BB Curve-

You can import the excel file to Outlook, for one method, and them Sync your Outlook file to the BlackBerry using Desktop Manager.


 Another is to export that Excel file to an ASCII file text file and import it directly (without Outlook) using Desktop Manager.

Hii! else, you can convert excel to vcard and then sync the vcard file to your BB curve. This way you can bot just easily sync your phone with excel conacts but vcard can be used in thousands of other aplications as well. A tool will help you to make vcard from excel file. find it here.    Smiley Happy
