    Back up contacts

    I have an 8900 running on a BES server that has 280 contacts that do not sync with BES. If I go to Contacts, Options I see two Contact Lists both called 'Desktop'. One has Wireless Sync as Yes and the other No. I can't set the second contact list to sync.

    I would like to find a way to not loose these contacts as I want to upgrade to version 5 of the OS which forces you to wipe the handset before you are able to reconnect with the BES server again.

    I have tried to sync using DM but DM tells me that the phone is set for wireless sync. If there is a way to force a sync using DM so that I can get the contacts into Outlook then I am sorted.

    Any ideas please?

    Hmm, let me ask around and see if I can come up with anything. No promises though.

    Has your system administrator provided you with an enterprise activation password? if so,you can set up email using this option by selecting 'I want to use a work email account with a BlackBerry Enterprise Server' in the email setup wizard on your smartphone. If you do not have an enterprise activation password, contact your system administrator.
