Not sure what forum to put this in. I have been using the blackberry a little over a year now and think it is the best business phone on the market with the exception of one thing. In my business I keep a lot of contacts in my outlook and when I speak to clients or employees I type notes in the contacts section of outlook and am used to having them on my phone while on the go because with active sync which is what I had with my previous phone used to wirelessly sync my phone while I am running around town and I was able to conduct business while on the move. With blackberry 8130 I need to have an enterprise server which I donít or I believe I could buy software that does it but I donít believe in doing this because all other pdaís that I know of is free. Now I find myself making a decision of going back with a phone that uses active sync for myself and my employees if there is not a solution. And getting rid of my blackberries. I was told by blackberry that unite solves this problem but from what I see I would have to manually type each entry in. I have hundreds of contacts and cannot do this. My business revolves around outlook. Is their a solution to this problem? If so I would be very happy.

Thanks for this. This is very inexpensive so I will probably get this.

Actually. I went to install this and realize that it still needs an exchange server. So they are basically selling the same software that blackberry gives for free.

I have tried everything short of getting an enterprise server which is very expensive. All the 3rd party apps that I can find still require an exchenge server. I dont want to get rid of my blackberry for an active sync phone because of all of the great biz features it has. If someone knows a way please help. I am losing too much money not being able to sync my contacts wirelessly.

I am researching your topic. Do you have the Blackberry desktop software?


Edit: if not you can get it here

You can sync Outlook software with BlackBerry offline using the USB cable and Intellisync (Blackberry Desktop Manager). All Blackberry mobile phones have excellent Microsoft Outlook synchronization capabilities.

Connect the Blackberry to your computer, open the Intellisync application and In the Synchronize now section, select the Synchronization PIM check box. Click Synchronize now.
