Custom contacts field on Z1O

Hi there,

 

i've recently moved from a Bold 9900 to the Z10. Used BlackBerry Link software to copy the data and move to the new Z10 device.

 

I had created custom fields for each contact on my Bold. Though these dont appear on the new device.

 

My question is, how do i sync these custom fields from the old device to the new one?

How did you sync or transfer your existing data to the contacts on the Z10?

Re: Custom contacts field on Z1O

well emails and contacts are pulled down once i added the email account. But BlackBerry Link copies over contacts to the Z10 anyway.

 

 

I had sync'd the contacts on the old device to Outlook using desktop manager and mapping the fields. So they are in Outlook. Though when i add the email account it doesnt show the additional fields such as the custom ones on the old device.

 

Im guessing i need to wait for BlackBerry Link to have the facility to map these contact fields like in Desktop Manager?

That is my guess. The transfer of contacts from Outlook to the Z10 should be released very soon.
