I know this should be directed to Microsoft but... Anyway, I am trying to get my ACT! 2008 data, including some user defined fields, into my new BlackBerry Storm. I tried Companionlink Express 3.0 but it messes up when you try to do subsequent syncs (duplicate records). So, next I thought I would try dumping data into Outlook as BlackBerry can talk to Outlook. Unfortunately, Outlook 2007 doesn't have ACT! 2008 as a possible import but when I used v9, the user field labels come over but not all the data.
If anyone knows how to fix the above great or if you have a suggestion on how to sync ACT! 2008 to a BlackBerry Storm using OS 4.7, it would be greatly appreciated.

I do hope we find an answer - although i'm out of town, my new BB Storm arrived at my home today and I planned to spend part of T Day getting it up and running... counting on having ACT as part of the system!!!!

Remember, that's $AU... so quite a bit cheaper in $US
But, for less than $1 per day, I find it saves me much more in time.

I downloaded Companion Link and it works beautifully... to get rid of the duplicates. set your settings (in comanionlink) to erase everthing and reinstall from your computer - TURN OFF 2 WAY SYNC.... My first attempt had duplicates, but after changing these settings it brough everything over beautifully.

How many contacts are you synching to your Storm? What version of ACT are you using? How long does it take to synch? Is it still running smoothly?

I have a Storm and am using CompanionLink to sync my ACT 11 data with the Blackberry. Had some of the duplicate records issue that you described, and my "work around" was to set data to sync in 1 direction from PC to BB.
As you have the Storm, you have figured out that data entry is a pain with the user interface, and for what I do, updating all of my data on the laptop (which has a full size and real keyboard works fine). Would like to be able to modify ACT data or create activity on Storm, but it's a like, not a need.
