I have listed an article and steps below that will help in syncing your Yahoo contacts with your Blackberry device.

***Before following the steps below I would recommend a soft reset of your device. A soft reset is where you would remove the battery for a few moments, and place the battery back in the device. The device will power up automatically.

***I would also recommend resetting your current Synchronization settings (on the Blackberry Desktop Manager) to ensure the proper steps are taken. To do this, follow the steps below:

-Connect the device to the computer using the USB cable / cradle.
-Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
-Click on Synchronize
-Click on Synchronization on the left hand side
-Click the “Reset configuration” button.
The article below is the step by step set up for your synchronization with Yahoo. The article will show Calendar on step 6 and Outlook on step 7. Change this to Contacts on step 6 and Yahoo on step 7.Replace Outlook with Yahoo following the remaining steps.

I have also listed the advance settings below for your convenience.***may not be necessary


I hope this helps! :smileyhappy:
