How do I sync my BlackBerry with my Exchange Global Address Book?

My BlackBerry is receiving mail (Enterprise Activation).  My BlackBerry has sync'd successfully with my Exchange Contacts list.  HOWEVER, it has not sync'd with my Enterprise Global Addressbook.  I have to key in each email address if I want to originate an email to an internal email addres.

How do I make my BlackBerry sync with my Exchange Global Address Book?

Thank you!!!

Unfortunately, this is not something that is doable on blackberries, unless you have the latest version of the BES software.  Contact Blackberry server support about getting the latest version.

You CAN, however, use a lookup against the GAL.  Do this by going into your Address Book.  Press the menu key (scroll wheel or the track ball) and go to the lookup option.  Here you can type (I find it best to type in the <firstname lastname> format) the name of the person and press enter.  This will search against your GAL and return the results in brackets [like this].  From there you can send to that recipient once and delete the lookup, or you can add the person to your address book.

Blackberry isn't designed to sync the GAL. Windows Mobile doesn't do it either. As already pointed out the idea is that you do an over the air lookup. The reason for this is that the GAL could be quite large and is centrally maintained. By doing an over the air lookup you get the latest information. If you want to sync the GAL then you have to use a third party tool such as add2exchange from diditbetter.com

long story short: NOT POSSIBLE.
a way around it, copy the whole GAL into your local Address book (not convenient).

That is basically what add2exchange does.
