    Having used BB link before and syncing contacts with outlook, what is the best way to do this now.

    I like to manage my contacts but prefer to do the editing on a PC instead of the phone

    what is the best option on the Priv to do this

    Hello,

    "Best" invites a lot of variability. IMHO, the best way is to use "the cloud" and skip past the wired sync/local contacts methodology. Configure your Outlook client to work with some OTA service, and then configure your PRIV to likewise do the same. For me, I prefer Outlook.com since they offer EAS at no additional charge (unlike Google, with whom you only get IMAP/CardDav/CalDav with their free accounts).

    I use this configuration, and go even a step further than you seem to be contemplating. I have my Outlook.com account integrated to 3 BB10 devices, one PRIV, one PlayBook, and two computers (one MAC, one Win10) running Outlook2016...a change I make via any of them dutifully and automatically replicates to all of the others with never a need to physically connect them together (since they are all using Outlook.com as an intermediary). As an added bonus, I can manage that same data on the Outlook.com website directly if needs be, and those changes likewise replicate to all other platforms. So, for me, that's "best".

    Good luck!

    Concur with above recommendation for outlook.com synch across all devices...works great! Have tried several others, but nothing functions as well as using Outlook for all email addresses, address book, and calendar.
