Today I wiped clean my Contact file on my 9360 Curve because I wanted to start fresh with a clean list of contacts from Outlook. That seemed to go fine. But then on using the BB Desktop Manger to upload the new contacts and sync the phone with my Outlook file the process went on and on and on. So, I cancelled it. But now the BB Desktop software synchronizing software, specifically "Organizer Data," just keeps resyncing...on and on.
How would you advise I proceed? Can I simply disconnect the phone and then reconnect and start again, that is, sync'ing them again? Any better suggestions?

I've been fiddling around and finally got them to connect. It involved restarting my PC and reconnecting my BB etc. Messy, but it worked. But I find myself now in an entirely different dilemma...
the desktop software didn't seem to know where the new contacts were to be uploaded. I guess they were originally in a default file on my BB but it didn't see it. So, not sure what to do, I figured I must be wrong and they should go in an ATT file. So I tried that and they seemed to sync. Now, there are no names in my contact folder, where they used to be, and I don't have any idea if there was any syncing going on at all.
FYI, I did get a message that my old default was no longer available (or something like that) which is why I tried the ATT option. Now I know I have to get back to the default after all. AT least that is where I want to have my contacts. Any suggestions how to get my phone to allow that again? Many thanks, John.

More fiddling and I ended up resetting my data sync settings and doing another sync and it worked. All's well here.

A huge surprise to me, when I went back to using my BB, after all that, I discovered that the contacts folder I thought I had "rset" was back, as if I hadn't even attempted to replace it with the contents of my PC's Outlook folder! I mean WHAT??!!!
So, if you're still there, I'm hoping you can give me a step by step approach to clearing my BB contacts folder, once and for all, so I can completely replace it with my Outlook Contacts folder. I know how to do the sync settings (one direction or two, etc.). I guess what I don't know is how to obliterate the **bleep** BB contacts once and for all. Exhausted! Thanks.
