Empty contacts- Help

I have a blackberry 8310 curve

In my address book I have over 300 empty contacts and want to get rid of them or at least have them show their name.

When I get Aol mail from one of these instead of displaying a name it just says empty contact.

I do not have any filters on.

Re: Empty contacts- Help

You can delete them one by one, or add Names one by one to those contacts.

 

Those are your choices.

Re: Empty contacts- Help

what happens when you open one of these contacts?
what fields are not empty?

Re: Empty contacts- Help

I have tried naming them and that works but really didnt want to have to do that to 200-300 empty contacts. I once deleted them and they all came back.

If I pick view the empty contact sometimes there is an email address and sometimes it is just blank- which is further confounding

Just take time to name 10 - 15 a day. You'll be done in a couple or three weeks, no rush.
