transfering group contacts from mac to 9800

Hi all.  Just purchased my torch and of course many changes from my old BB.   I transferred my contacts from my macpro and all contacts came except 2 group contacts with about 15 addresses in each group.  The groups showed up when I went to do the transfer and I checked off the box.  I have tried to do this several times and still no groups.  Has it been stored somewhere else other than contacts or will groups not transfer over.   My 2nd question is, if it cant transfer over, can I make a group email on the contacts I have in my bb.  Thanks for the help.  Im sure I will be back with other issues.

Re: transfering group contacts from mac to 9800

the groups do not sync with Outlook, I dont have a MAC to test this with but you might have the same issue with a MAC as well.


for only 2 groups, add them again on the device and you should be good.
