Re: address book

You need to get programs that are supported by the Desktop Software such as Outlook or Outlook Express.  Windows Mail is not a supported application.  You would have to purchase those programs. 


Or you could do it the free way:  Use Yahoo!


Transfer all your information to a Yahoo Account.  Yahoo can transfer all your contacts over from one e-mail account to a Yahoo account.   It can also transfer all the e-mails.  You can synchronize your calendar, contacts, memos, and tasks between your blackberry and a Yahoo account via Blackberry Desktop Manager. 


OR you can create plain text files and synchronize them, another way to manage your contacts is Excel.  Then you can create a .CVS file and synchronize it with your blackberry.
