    OK, I'm 60, my wife and kids got me this Blackberry Curve. Dang if I don't like it. I've never sent a text message in my life...don't know anyone to send one to. What I do have is an address book full of business contacts..on an old utility called Sidekick. Outlook Express is just soooo cumbersome for me. Any thoughts on where I can find a simple little utility like this for this thing, or how I can get sidekick on my Blackberry? Remember...I'm technically illeterate, so please be simple. I don't mind if you laugh at me, but I need HEELLLLPPPP. Thanks

    Welcome to CrackBerry, us old timers have a struggle keeping on top on new technology, good thing we got the kids to help out.

    Sidekick, eh? Been a while.

    BlackBerry Syncronize supports several alternate sources:

    Microsoft Outlook
    Windows Address Book/Mail
    ASCII Import/Export
    Yahoo!

    The simplest would be Outlook Express. Transfer your contacts to OE then syncronize to get them on the Curve.

    A little tougher to use is ASCII. Export your contacts in ASCII and import them using syncronize.
