As many as your device memory has available space for... thousands.

I have one friend with 14,000+

ughh, no. Address Book contacts are NOT stored on the SD card, but ONLY within the device's app memory space.

 

The number of contacts your device will hold is actually undeterminable, as I said above it is limited ONLY by the memory space available. Your 9800 has 512mb device memory, much of which is taken up for the operating system, etc., and other applications you might install.

 

So, there is no hard and fast maximum on the number of contacts which can be stored on the device.

 

There is a 8,000 maximum which can be synced over the wireless network, but that has nothing to do with what be stored on your device.

 

Let me ask this... how many contacts to you want to store?

Wrong. Stating blatantly incorrect information leads one down the wrong path.
