Tips & Tricks Blackberry 48 : How to get contacts from Hotmail to a Blackberry

BlackBerry phones allow you to import contacts from other applications. They work with Outlook Express to synchronize contacts from Windows Live Hotmail and other email accounts. Uploading contacts from Hotmail to your mobile device may require a few steps; however, you won’t have to retype all the contacts on your mobile phone.

Instructions

Things You’ll Need:
  • BlackBerry
  • USB cable
    Exporting Hotmail contacts to Outlook Express
  • Step 1

    Log into your Hotmail account and click “Options.”

  • Step 2

    Click “More Options” and then the “Export Contacts” option under “Customize your contacts.” This launches the file-saving dialog box.

  • Step 3

    Select the location to save the contacts and click “Save.” By default, the exported contacts file is named “WLMContacts.csv.”

  • Step 4

    Launch Outlook Express and click the “File” menu. Scroll down and click “Import.” Click “Other address book.”

  • Step 5

    Select “Text file” and click “Import.” Click “Browse” and select the “WLMContacts.csv” file you exported from your Windows Live Hotmail account. Click “Next” to import the contacts to Outlook Express.

    Transferring Outlook Express contacts to BlackBerry
  • Step 1

    Download and install the BlackBerry Desktop software if you do not already have it on your computer (see Resources).

  • Step 2

    Connect your BlackBerry phone to the computer and launch the BlackBerry Desktop software. Click the “Synchronize” button on the application to launch the synchronization configuration window.

  • Step 3

    Check on the “Synchronize organizer data” option and click the “Configuration” tab. Click “Configure Synchronization” and click “Address Book.” Select “Outlook Express” and click “OK.”

  • Step 4

    Place a check on the “Outlook Express Address Book” in the “Handheld applications” window. If you want to sync the calender, tasks and MemoPad, select them as well. Click “OK” to save the changes.

  • Step 5

    Click “Synchronize Now.” The Windows Live Hotmail contacts you exported to Outlook Express are transferred to your BlackBerry phone
