Re: Deleting a Contact List

Hi,

 

I've read through the thread but this solution doesn't work for me.

 

On my Curve9360 I have three contact lists all called DESKTOP

 

The first list has 15 contacts

The second list has 132 contacts

The third list has 1 contact

 

None of the contacts are duplicated. When I try to back up the device it only sees contacts from list one so will only back up 15 contacts.

 

When I try to delete a list by typing rset in the options menu, I get the prompt and choose yes, but it doesn't actually delete the list.

 

It seems there is no way for me to access the bulk of my contacts (List 2 - 132) by either backing up or syncing.

 

Also, desktop manager doesn't give me one way sync as an option.

 

If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it.

Re: Deleting a Contact List

Thanks christymj23,

I think I found an even easier flavour to the trick. I replied NO when I was prompted for the Desktop which is currently active (the one that is "syncing wirelessly") and I did not even have to reload the contacs from my exchange server... The normal sync process continued flawlessly for the good desktop, while the unwanted secondary desktop disappeared :-) 

Thanks once again.

I wonder, is there a manual/reference for such tricks and shortcuts for BB's, or are they reserved for BB techies only?

Re: Deleting a Contact List

I just did what you suggested.. Before i did, i backed up my adress book and then restored it after wiping it with the "rset" trick.. However once i restored my contact list back into my phone all the contact lists i have, came along with it. I currently have five of those when i click on the options of the adress book on my blackberry (two unkown,my yahoo,my gmail and a default one, Each having a different amount of contacts in them) this contact list deal is making it impossible to transfer all my bb contacts into my samsung galaxy s3. What can i do now?

Deleting a Contact List

I had changed my mobile number and after that I had created my gmail account once again. It had sync contacts and all records were appearing twice. I had manually deleted duplicate records from contacts. It has deleted contacts from my gmail account also. Under Contacts, Options, two contact lists are appearing. One shows a few contacts and other shows all my contacts. In the account where all contacts appear do not shows option of Wireless Synchronization. How to copy contacts from this list to my gmail account? Please help me to retrieve my contacts.
