How to delete Duplicated Contacts List?

After I restore my BB9700, I found there are 2 almost identical contacts lists in my cell.  How could I remove one of the list that I don't like it in the cell?

Re: How to delete Duplicated Contacts List?

Hi bernardblbl,


This may happen if you have wireless sync enabled for your contacts and restore from a backup file. You can clear your contacts database and allow the wireless sync to complete again to remove the duplication.


  1. Open the Contact list application on the BlackBerry.
  2. Press the Menu key and click Options.
  3. Type the letters rset to clear and synchronize the Contact list database, over the wireless network.

Hope this helps
