Hello Neev,

 

There is no hard coded limit for Address Book contacts to my knowledge. As long as the device has sufficient memory you can add as many contacts as you would like.

 

Just keep in mind that you do not want to allow your memory to get too low for any reason.

 

Here is an article that may be of interest when managing your device memory:

Re: What is the maximum size of address book .

The limitation on address book entries is 32k...no more, no less.  I have tested this on an 8100, 8300, 8800 & 9000 series phone and they all died at the exact same spot.  Per RIM, this is cap and they are not looking to extend the number.  If you do hear of anything, please let me know as I have a user that has 45K+ worth of contacts and wants to put them all in his BB.

 

Thanks in advance.
