IsabelM: The same thing worked for me--simply setting the first birthday that I had in my Blackberry Curve 8530 to "none" allowed me to transfer contacts in my phone to Outlook. I, too, left the rest of the birthdays and the transfer worked fine. Thanks for sharing!

I wonder what you mean by "first birthday".
Also, what if I don't want to get rid of the birthday information, I have collated this information over the years for my 500+ contacts and don't really want to part with it... come on BlackBerry, how about FIXING THE PROBLEM?!

The backup and deletion and restore from the IPD file wasn't cutting it for me.
Luckily my contacts were fairly well-sync'd before the problem occurred. I had an idea and deleted the records from the device using the Desktop Manager, then, instead of restoring from the IPD and running into the same issue, I just let it be and just sync'd with Outlook, it put all the contacts back on and I sync'd it three times after and there was no sight of the errror.
Whoever's stuck, try this formula...

How in the world did you find all of your bday info?
I don't mind deleting them all but I can't recall which entries have that information.
Also, are you all deleting the bday info from the bb device or the outlook database?
I tried the "first bday" method and it did not work for me. But that's probably because I have no way of finding out if that's my first bday entry on contacts.
So please let me know how you went about doing this...

I just deleted "Address Book" from the Desktop Manager while my phone was conncected of course then I synced...finally, after months of transfering date one entry at a time, I finally got it all on my phone from outlook.
I almost didn't try that...so to all of you out there that might be frustrated with everyone's method ---try everything until you find what works for you...truth is, every device is different in some ways...
Hope that helps....

Good afternoon, I have a Blackberry 8520, Windows 7 and Office 2010, and I can not sync, the process begins and ends not accusing 0x80043ac9 failure. Does anyone know why this is happening,
