BlackBerryContact commit too slow

In my test, the commit command of the BlackBerryContact takes too long to finish. A single commit command takes up about 80% of the running time of the application.


For example, my test was performed on a Curve (OS Version 4.5) with 200 contacts. I retrieved the contact list and modify all contacts in the list. The total running time is about 120 seconds. The commit time is about 95-100 out of that 120 seconds.


My clients' contact lists usually consist of more than 1000 entries. Is there anything I can do to optimize the process ?

Re: BlackBerryContact commit too slow

I have had similar issues with Address Book performance.


I tried to improve the visual progress of the application by showing a status bar while it scanned a few thousand contacts.


I Couldnt really do that either. Simply trying to count the total number of contacts in the address book took many minutes.


My testing was on OS 4.2

Re: BlackBerryContact commit too slow



I just wanted to know how you solved this problem. At the moment, I am also facing this issue of BlackBerryContact commit being too slow.
