Re: how do I delete all entires in device address book and start over

You need to do this via Desktop Manager. I will give you the steps using Desktop Manager v4.5:

 

1. Connect your BlackBerry to the computer using the USB cable and open Desktop Manager.

2. Click  Backup and Restore

3. Click the Advanced button under the section called Advanced

4. On the following screen, on the right-hand side, highlight  Address Book, then click the Clear button towards the bottom.

 

This will clear out the Address Book and leave it empty.
