    I just got a new blackberry curve 8830, and would like to build the address book on my pc and transfer it to the blackberry.

    The problem is, I do not have microsoft outlook.

    I'm hoping to avoid entering everything in on that itty-bitty keypad.

    Any thoughts?

    My wife just got one of these devices for her job. I too am wondering how this works since we do not have most of the microsoft office programs. So, I'll be watching along with the op for guidance.

    Also, we use backup assistant on our current lg phones through verizon. I've read that there is no way to use this same program to back up data/contacts entered. How does one backup this data without using the microsoft products?

    Thanks!

    Jim

    Use a computer at work that does have M$.

    You *might* be able to use Google address book but I can't remember. I uninstalled BB Desktop manager since I got rid of my Curve and Pearls.

    Maybe you could import an .XLS or .CSV? :dunno:
