Contact Questions

I have my contacts set up in differeny Folders.  EXP: Business, Family, Stained Glass etc.  How can I do the same thing on my BB?  I have noticed that only the main contact sync over.  I have to move a contact over to the main contacts and hot sync.  But unfortunately I have lost some contacts and have to recreate them.  Does anybody out there know how to get this to work?


Thanks for any help!

  4. Put the check mark and you'll get a prompt to Select Desktop Application
  5. Highlight the application name and click next button
