Address book; manipulating info

Is there a way to manipulate contact info via the desktop manager?  I want to re-organize the contact info from my SIM card and it's taking a long time on the BB. TIA for your help.


(Sorry if this is a dumb question - I'm very technologically challenged and this is my first BB)

Re: Address book; manipulating info

Not from the SIM Card, but if you copy yoiur SIM card to the Address Book on the BB, you can then sync your Address Book to Outlook or Outlook Express on your PC, using Desktop Manager.


On your BB, Address Book > SIM Phonebook > Copy All to Address Book.


Download Desktop Manager from here:
