How do I create duplicate contacts on a blackberry bold?

This may sound like a dumb question but I'd like to be able to create duplicate contact entries on my Bold.  Reason, I deal with many offices where they all have the same address but different phone numbers.  While on the road it would be easier to duplicate the contact and correct the name and phone number rather than cut and paste everything one field at a time.

Is there any way to do this, I've checked in all the contact options and can't seem to find one.


Thanks in advance,


Dr. Mom

I don't see that options either, within the BB OS.


You can certain duplicate in Outlook, easy enough, but not from within the BB itself.
