ActiveSync Exchange: possibility to choose contact folder?


I'm looking for having the possibility to choose which contacts folder I would like or not to synchronise, similar to the email synchronisation, where I can choose, under ActiveSync settings, which folder you would like to sync. I'm working with BIS only.


Unfortunately, if you have a contact sub-folder, ActiveSync will sync also the contact "bellow" the main contact container. Android offers the possibility to choose....  


Any ideas? I guess that I'm not the only one with this probematic.

Re: ActiveSync Exchange: possibility to choose contact folder?

Hey Sinserli,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Thanks for the question.


On the BlackBerry Z10 it will synchronize all contacts through ActiveSync, you do not have the option to choose which folders come over.


Let me know if you have any more questions.

Re: ActiveSync Exchange: possibility to choose contact folder?

Thank you for your reply.

I have noticed it and was hoping you to answer me that it will come.

More and more I get the feeling that I have bought the wrong phone or at least a green banana. Such a feature is not a nice to have. Think to users which have to have their contacts on the server! As I already wrote Nokia and Android offers this feature.

BlackBerry, unfortunately, had to come or to release the Z10 not as a business tool but more as a lifestyle mainstream phone and so to continue to loose the unique identity, at least this is the feeling of a frustrated user.

I also do very much hope that BlackBerry will continue to solve business requirements, with emphasis on solve.
