    Free Contacts Management Software for the BlackBerry?

    So I was hoping that one of you could help me out. I have been searching and searching for a free, quality contacts management software for my BlackBerry to make it easier for me to enter/edit the information for each of the contacts on my BlackBerry (considering typing it in on a full-sized keyboard is much easier).

    If ANYONE can help me, I'd appreciate it. I already tried IPD Address Book from BlackberryItalia.it... it just keeps freezing when I load my Address Book info... Google Sync doesn't do what I want it to. I really just want to be able to edit the contacts I already have in my Storm, then re-load it after I have edited them.

    I ask because I know you at BBOS know you stuff, so I'm assuming this won't be difficult for you to answer. Thanks!

    problem is this: Outlook is at my office and thus has the e-mail addresses and all that for my co-workers, but I don't want to have that put in to my phone... I just want a simple way to update/edit my contacts but in a way that they will actually sync up correctly with addresses not being on one single line in contact information (like occurred with GoogleSync).. I'll try Outlook though. I just don't think it is going to accomplish what I want, as I am pretty anal about everything being entered correctly in my address book... sad, yes, but it's nice to have all that information correctly organized and I do not have the time to go through all my contacts on my phone, where it would take mere minutes to do on the computer.

    You could try Google Sync. It has the ability to sync contacts. There's one other service that I know of called Soocial that is along the lines of what you want. But they have been promising BlackBerry support for over a year now...

    Here's a link to sensobi. I used it for a little while. They've just upgraded the other day. I don't know if it will do excactly what you want but its worth a look . I'm a google sync kinda guy.

    Sensobi says it isn't compatible with the Storm -- bastards....... on the other hand, I could just go ahead and clear out my google contacts and re-sync... i just hate how if i type in the full address for someone on google contact, it all shows up in one single line on the blackberry as opposed to going into the proper lines for address 1, city, state, zip, etc. other than that, don't really mind it.

    I think i found something that works a bit... not quite as nice an interface as I was looking for, but ABC Amber BlackBerry Editor seems to accomplish my goal.

    Just in case, on my Storm Sensobi works perfect. For me, one of my favorites apps

    right laney,it is compatible but they haven't released the full storm version yet. it will be nicer when that happens but is still functional now. i think the OP wanted a program where he could edit contacts on pc then sync with BB.sensobi doesn't do that to my knowledge.
