    Cannot create new group on 7130e...?

    Advertisement



    I have just newly purchased a 7130e and am unable to create new groups within my contacts. I go to address book>new group>add members and it will not let me continue. Has anyone had the same problem and come up with a solution?

    I am just wondering, this phone is only 2 days old...is this a common problem? Can I possibly reset the phone without losing my data?

    It appears groups are only for email addresses? I just tried to create a new group and it will only let me add email not phone numbers. I looked through all my groups and now realize only the email addresses are in them....

    To group contacts I use filters.

    To create a filter go to address Book, click trackwheel, choose filter, click trackwheel choose new, name the filter. Go back into address book, go into the contact and click trackwheel, scroll down to categories and click trackwheel and choose categories, then click the trackwheel on the filter you want. Then go back into address book, click trackwheel and choose filter, click the trackwheel on the filter you want and all your contacts for that filter will appear.

    I have added the filters...I was wondering why the group option would not work, but that makes sense through the use of email. Have others had similar experiences? Thanks for the help.

    rvetter, Welcome to PinStack.

    I guess Groups would be good for Conference calls, If the BB could connect to multiple phone numbers without having to follow the standard conference add in procedure.

    luggagefish, Welcome to PinStack.

    I don't think you can use groups for SMS messages. The reason I say this is, as cp mentioned, you can only select email addresses when adding contacts that have multiple phone Nos and email addresses, you only have the option of selecting the email address. Plus the fact taht when I selcct Compose SMS, it want let me select the Group, or anyone from the group as the To:.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your BB.

    I have a 7130e and the way that cp described is the only way to group contacts together, options to do things on your phone are really cool if they only let you use them as they may have been intended
