unsync

I don't want my email contacts to show up in my contacts automatically. Any way to undo this feature?

Re: unsync

eh?

 

You don't want to see email address in your Address Book for contacts for which you have saved an email address?

Re: unsync

I only want the email addresses for contacts I input manually. I don't want every email to automatically load into my contacts. I end up with doubles, triples, ones I don't want. So yeah.

Re: unsync

Open your Address Book, do you see email addresses in your contacts which you didn't save there?

 

Or are you wanting, when addressing a new email message, not to see those email addresses from recent contacts which you DO NOT have saved to your address book?

Re: unsync

Yes

 

It seems that it is auto-updating my contacts whenever I receive an email. I want to only have the contacts I enter manually appear in my contacts. So yes, rarely respond via email, I just check the messages. So, yes, I want only contacts I've saved appear in my contacts. Sorry, that was kind of convoluted!

Re: unsync

Well, I am still confused because you haven't answered my question above.

 

Let me try a different one. Are you are using a Gmail or Yahoo email account?

Check you Yahoo account, on a PC login. There must be some Yahoo setting to add contacts to your address book, which then are syncing to your BlackBerry.

 

You can turn off the contact syncing here:

Article ID: KB22430 How to enable wireless contact synchronization with BlackBerry Internet Service

You will want to do the opposite of the instructions in that link.
