Blackberry Curve/BES : Sync all contact fields

Posted on 2007-10-01

I have just moved from a Windows Mobile device to a Blackberry Curve (8310).  I have BES.

Some of the phone number fields from Outlook do not seem to sync, such as Car.  I have some contacts with Separate Car phone numbers.  Is there a way to sync all contact / phone number fields?

    You can try using the field mapping using the BB Desktop manager.
    It should allow you to map the fields you want imported/ synched.

    I hope this helps !

    Thanks, but how do I do that?  (Where are the options?)

    Also, would that help with Wireless sync or just when it is plugged in via the USB cable?

    1) Install the BB desktop program. get the latest version 4.2 SP2 I think.

    2) Check the Syncronize options, and do a test sync, and look at the log - It should show the default fiedl mappings.

    Use the help to find where the field maps can be changed.

    I hope this helps !
