Delete Contact List

I am showing three different contact lists on my Curve 9310 and I want to delete two of them to remove all duplicates. Apart from deleting each contact individually (which I don't want to have to do with nearly two hundred of them) I can't see a way to remove a contact list. Anyone got any suggestions?

 

Thanks in advance

Re: Delete Contact List

Hello,

I'm glad you found a solution...but in the interest of helping others (this is a user-to-user community), would you mind posting your specific resolution? I'm sure that other volunteers and participants would benefit from it.

Thanks!

Re: Delete Contact List

Good point.

 

I used Blackberry Desktop. When the phone is connected there is an option under the Device menu named Delete Data. When this is clicked you should see a list of various data types you can choose to delete.

 

Each contact list is visible in this list, but only as an address book and a number of entries - you cannot see the contact list names.

 

If you know how many entries there are in the list you want to delete (you can see this on the phone in the contact list itself) you can select the list(s) you want to delete. Otherwise you can delete all address data and create a new contact list from your normal sync source - in my case it was my Outlook contacts folder.

 

That's what worked for me.

Re: Delete Contact List

I have read and attempted you advise and not had any luck.

 

when I go into Device to delete date it shows me the list but some items including the duplicated address book is dimmed and will not allow me to delete

 

Please advise

Re: Delete Contact List

I'm sorry, I don't know what the solution is to that problem. You might have more luck starting a new thread because this one is marked as solved so won't have as many people reading it.
