    The following is how to sync your outlook contacts with your blackberry using BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
    It's actually quite easy.

    * Connect your blackberry to your computer and open BlackBerry Desktop Manager (make sure the proper drivers for your Blackberry are installed if this is your first time connecting - they should've came with your phone)
    * From the main menu select Synchronize
    * Under Configure in the left menu select Synchronization
    * "Configure synchronization setting for my desktop program"
    * Select Address Book > Setup
    * Select Microsoft Outlook
    * Select Two way or One way sync to device
    * Next - Select your profile in outlook
    * Click okay
    * Click Synchronize from the left menu and then Synchronize (in the middle)
    * Click Sync Organizer Data check box. Click Synchronize.

    Export Contacts from Outlook to Android 2.0 (DROID)

    Step 1

    * Open Outlook and click on your contacts
    * Go to File > Import and Export > Select Export to a file - Next
    * Select Comma Separated Values (Windows) - Next
    * Select Contacts - Next
    * Save the file in a known location - Next
    * Click on 'Map Custom Fields' and make sure Default Maps are set
    * Click Finish

    Step 2

    * Log Into your Gmail account
    * Click Contacts in the left menu
    * Click Import in the top right
    * Choose file and select the .csv file you just saved (add them to a group if you want)
    * Click Import
    * Your contacts will be imported into your Gmail account

    Step 3

    * On your Droid make sure you have connected your Gmail account
    * Go to contacts > Menu > Accounts
    * Select your Gmail account > Menu > Sync Now
    * Your new contacts will be imported - Any duplicates should be merged.

    Found this earlier today... haven't seen it posted yet on CB in the DROID forums so I figured I'd help everyone out. Thought it was helpful. Another option instead of using G-mail sync.
