Editing Existing Contact as New

Hello all!


I have a BB Torch but I don't think the problem is related to the device but rather software. Currently running 6.0 bundle 29 something. :-)


Anyways.....I have a whole lot of contacts. I like to catagorize my contacts based on the company they're with. I have one company we'll call "3 Alpha." I have at least 10 contacts from that company as they are a large company with very many project managers. When I add a new contact I have to fill in the same information over again.


Company Name


City, Zip Code (ya I'm Canadian Yo!)



This is before I can add the person with his/her phone number , extension and email address. The email client I have allows me to take an existing contact and Edit it as new. So the only thing I have to do is edit the information that changes (ie Name, Tel and email.)


Does BB have a similar function or App that can do the same? It would save me so much time.


Thanks in advance.
