Thumbs down Help with my contacts

Hai all, i was wondering if there was a way i can use the contacts list i have on my computer and export them to my phone, sorint tp? I used to have a bb curve 8330 then it went in the washing machine for some time and the screen stoped working so i got this phone but before the phone went in the washing machine luckily i imported my phone numbers to my yahoo mail and now i just exported them to c:/username/contacts..



so if ur confused on what i want to do i want to kno if there is a way for me to take the contacts i have saved in my windows contact folder and put them on my phone in the address book w/o manually typing in the numbers one at a time

Re: Help with my contacts

I have used activesync and birdiesync. Activesync works with outlook. You should be able to import the contacts into that program, and then use activesync. Or you can download birdiesync and the free mozilla thunderbird. I would imagine you can import the contacts into thunderbird too. I don't have any experience with moving information in and out of yahoo mail, but that's my guess. I wonder if there is a way of directly connecting to yahoo mail. I do know that you can also download contacts from windows live mail into windows mobile.

Here is an alternative, found by a google search of "yahoo contacts into windows mobile"

Re: Help with my contacts

Another thing to think about is if you are going to stay with a touch pro for a while, or if you will be making the move to an android phone in the near future.

If you are going to move to android, it would be worth importing the contacts to google, that way when you get the android phone you just have to sign in with your google account and it will import all of your contacts automatically. Until then, you can sync your phone with m.google.com and have it pull all your contacts to your WM phone.

I have all my contacts sync'd with Google, I love it. I switch between ROMs fairly frequently, and I do a lot of testing of XDAndroid.... Google Sync saves me hundreds of hours of trying to get contacts sync'd, it does it all for me! Definitely the best option, especially if you have several devices or worry about losing anything

Re: Help with my contacts

Google sync is best. I did activesync to do google push mail on my touch pro. I would save a number on my touch pro and then wake my evo and check contacts, and it was there. That fast.
