Hi,

 

I am brand New to Blackberry - Can't figure out how to add contacts on the Desktop. I am familiar with the palm desktop and ssume there is a blackberry equivalent. Yes?

 

Thanks

Re: desktop

if you are syncing the desktop software withg Outlook, add the contact in Outlook, and when you sync the blackberry you are sync the contacts too.

Thanks for the reply.  I don't have Outlook.  I have been using  a Palm Treo with the Palm desktop.  First, I wanted to see a Blackberry desktop into which I could put contacts.  Does Blackberry not have its own desktop?

There is a "Blackberry Desktop Manager", but you can't store contacts in this program. It is not comparable to the "Palm Desktop". The Blackberry Desktop Manager is used to backup/restore the device, configure redirection, update the firmware and other stuff.

Re: desktop

Thanks.  I see.  Do you know if it will work with Mozilla Thunderbird or just with MS Outlook?

For Kudos, just press the Kudo icon to the right of the post.

 

Thunderbird doesn't work with the BB Desktop Manager, as far as I know, see:
