Re: Problem with Contact List

Easy solution:
Open your contacts
Press menu -> Options
Type rset
Select yes for the contact lists you want to delete - Warning - this is highly destructive...

Now - I need to find out how to rename my "Unknown" list...

Re: Problem with Contact List

Yep that worked

Going to Contacts/Menu/Optionsamd typing rset, allowed me to get rid of the empty list!

 

Thanks

Re: Problem with Contact List

I have a different issue in that I have 4 contact lists, 2 called desktop and 2 called unknown. Problem is all my contacts are in one of the unknown and when I have tried to use Google sync to transfer to my gmail account, it doesn't read the unknown list.

 

How can I get them into a desktop one that it will read and transfer. I have no access to desktop manager as this is a work phone and for some reason I can't access desktop manager

Re: Problem with Contact List

I had this problem until tonight.

 

I connected my BB to my laptop, opening BB Desktop Software.

 

I had one address book named Default, which had one contact in, and the other called Unknown, which had the rest of my contacts in.

 

I clicked Device, Delete Data, found the Default address book with one contact in and deleted it. 

 

Then I backed up the Unknown address book, and deleted Unknown and Address Book, restarted my phone, then restored the Unknown address book, and restarted my phone again.

 

This has worked. I no longer have 2 address books and the address book is renamed to Default again with all my contacts in!

 

I hope this works for you.
