Contact List Issues - 9810



I'm just wondering if there was a way to reassign a contact to an e-mail contacts list? I have 4 e-mail accounts connected to my BlackBerry Torch, and most of my business contacts have been saved to my personal email. I know it sounds a little silly as they are all on the same device, but it has a become a hassle in other aspects.


Thanks in advance for any help in this matter

Hi and welcome to the forums!


I suggest you consolidate the four different contacts lists as it will cause major headaches down the road. The procedure is fairly easy please remember to do a full device backup before addressing the issue.




KB19704 Multiple Address Book contact lists are created on a BlackBerry smartphone causing issues with synchronization


Frequently, wireless address book synchronization can cause multiple contact lists to be created on a BlackBerry smartphone. For example, there may be duplicate Desktop contact lists or a contact list named Desktop and one named Unknown or an email address that may appear within the contact list options. The contacts visible in the Address Book will be associated with one or other of the Desktop or Unknown lists and not all will synchronize - either wirelessly or through the BlackBerry Desktop Software.
