BlackBerry Smartphones Edit on Office contacts

How do you find out and change your contacts on the desktop software? I found the file but I can't open it.


RIM is Research in Motion, the maker of BlackBerry devices.

You should be able to sync with Windows Mail (I don't see why not, and the only way to confirm will be trying).

Here are the steps for you to follow:

  • With your BlackBerry connected, go to the BlackBerry Desktop Manager and select Synchronize.
  • In the left menu under configure, select Synchronize, and then on the side right, again select the synchronization.
  • Select address book.  You should see the option to synchronize with your desktop applications, including Windows Mail, Outlook Express alias (if you see Outlook Express and Windows Mail, are not using Outlook Express).
  • Once you have configured your synchronization settings, perform a synchronization.  You should then be able to access your contact information in Windows Mail.

If you do not see an option for Windows Mail or Outlook Express, and if you have a Yahoo email account, you can sync using the Yahoo importer.

I hope that gives you a starting point.

    Hello and welcome to the community!

    If the old BB is really dead, then it is not available as a source for restoring your data to your new device. Instead, you must use another source, one that you created before the old BB died.

    If you made a backup of office, you can use the backup as a restore source file:

  • BlackBerry Smartphones only restore BBM contacts - how?


    How can I restore ONLY my BBM contacts using the desktop software?  I looked through the choice of data but none like the right. I have a Torch 9800 and I use the latest office software. (6.0 bundle 1907)

    I use my BB especially for work it is setup with connection of mail company so last week when I had problems they have wiped my BB and now my email and business contacts sync works well again but I lost all my BBM contacts.

    In the restore office option, I use the "select parameters and device data" to select data to restore, but I cannot easily determine what type of data I should be restore so I didn't wipe my e-mail contacts existing or other parameters. Given that I had about 60 BBM contacts fields that show a counter that is close (and therefore looks promising) to the correct quantity are: Messages, folders, store of Trusted keys, stored key pocket, and recent contacts.

    Any help or thoughts are appreciated.

    No, you're not... the latest version is 6.1.0 Bundle 34...

    See this KB for a list of all databases on the BB:

    • KB03974 List of all databases on the BlackBerry smartphone

    The appropriate injector is there. It's a shame you didn't otherwise save your BBM contacts... BBM itself offers the possibility to make a backup of contacts... I've always found that more useful than the ability to backup/restore of desktop software.

    Hi and welcome to the Forums!

    Unlike other how things, RIM does not provide a desktop PIM. Others force you to use their PIM and only their PIM. RIM provides a driving software that works as a bridge between your PIM and the BB. See this compatible PIM KB:

  • Bishop Office of blackBerry Smartphones will not synchronize contacts

    I just got a Verizon BB Bold 9650.  I have an iMac running the latest version of Snow Leopard.  I downloaded the Desktop Manager and it sync was my calendars and notes but not my contacts.  Contacts is gray and it has this message:

    Contacts are currently configured for a wireless sync.

    To synchronize the Contacts with the BB Desktop Manager, disable the wireless sync by opening address book on your device and in the Options menu, by selecting your AddressBook and changing the field of no. wireless sync reconnect your device and try to synchronize again.

    The only options I get are to sort and separate or allow duplicate names or views confirm the deletions.

    I clicked on each tab and I can find the button and there is no option anywhere wireless sync.  Manual provided with the phone and the manual in PDF format are both pretty useless.  It's as if they were designed for another phone running a different os because I can't find half of what I'm looking for by following their instructions.

    It's very frustrating because the main reason I went with the BB because they announced that their phone to synchronize with the mac address book and calendars.


    YEA - my contacts are now on my BB bold.  With the assistance of Verizon.  On my phone, to go down as a result of get to the wireless sync option.

    Open contacts

    Press the menu button

    Click on options

    Choose the e-mail address

    Then, you have the option of wireless sync.

    Apparently the gmail accounts auto together towards the top for wireless synchronization but the OS X address book do not like that.  You must disable the gmail wireless synchronization (this includes all .edu also addresses) and then can be synced to the BB.


  • BlackBerry smartphone edition contacts and notes to Desktop

    I managed to get the duplicate contacts and notes on my BB 9900. Does anyone know how to change the files in the desktop. Remove duplicates in 9900 seems to be a large and time consuming task. THX.

    What I would do, is make a full backup of the BB with Desktop Manager (this way you can always restore from backup should anything be screwed up worse.)

    Perform a one-way synchronization of Outlook on the device, then check the box to refresh or replace the device.

  • Icon blackBerry Smartphones Media manager Office Manager is missing?

    Hi cgreen60

    Try to uninstall the software and put it back.  Make sure that you download a version with the Media Manager.

    You can find the BlackBerry Downloads page here.

    * edit that you can also transfer files running on on the device mass storage mode, then go to my computer on your PC.  You'll see a BlackBerry drive, and you can drag and drop files into the appropriate folder there.

    WOW, FIXED! OK, so after playing with the phone for a while, I noticed another problem - I have had wayyyyy too much e-mail contcts; as in every yahoo only contact had synced my phone. so I went Googling issuing telephone directories, options and rset type who turned off Wi - Fi sync. then I restored (for the billionth time) and voila! no more contacts additional email and phone contacts are back.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones Can I retrieve contact information for a database without the BlackBerry

    This is my story - a couple of weeks, I dropped my 8130 Pearl in a large cup of water. After miraculously, he came back to life, I decided that it was time to SAVE my contact... information so I used the version of the office for Manager do... Only, I clicked on "Addresses", which I guess means contacts. I joke that my poor BlackBerry not - the VERY NEXT DAY, went into the pool with me. Now, despite the fact that I just mentioned after swimming, I actually do not lead a lavish lifestyle... I live in the desert, and I had to enter my poor toddler, overheated in the pool as soon as possible. I have no cell phone insurance, but I don't have the $50 deductible to get a new BlackBerry. Now I use a Casio g opportunity ' Boulder area. I had so much contact info, I need. So, here is my question. Is there a way to convert information database (IPD file) I saved in a word document, or other legible form so I can get all my contacts?

    Thank you in advance,


    Crystal, Hello and welcome to the Forums of Support

    Yes, google search for ABC Amber IPD Converter and use it. It is not free, but the trial software will manage a limited number of records.

    If you end up having a new BlackBerry, you can restore this backup IPD file on your new device.
