    Question Help: Contact Syncronization (Mass Deletion)

    Advertisement



    I need some help.

    Situation:
    I wanted to syncronize my contact list from MS Outlook with my new Blackberry 7130c.

    What I did:
    My contact list had several old numbers and contacts that I needed to delete. I deleted many, but after 15 minutes, I got tired and thought that I could finish at another time. I decided to synchronize. Oh, what a mistake. All the contacts were copied to the blackberry. When I decided to clean up MS Outlook a little more and then re-synchronize, I found that the Desktop Manager wanted to put the old (now deleted) contacts back on my MS Outlook. It would not delete anything from the blackberry (even though I set it to "MS Outlook wins".

    I have about 1000 contacts I need to delete, and I'm not looking forward to del - d.

    What I need:
    Please tell me there's some way to erase or delete more than one contact at a time on the blackberry.

    You can delete the entire address book using the advanced feature of the backup/restore of the Desktop Manager.

    Thank you. I just stumbled on that. I figured there must be a way to keep me from having to delete one by one.

    fitzland, Welcome to PinStack.

    Did you have the Sync setting to Export (BB to Outlook) or was it set to Sync. If this situation comes up again make sure once you have synced the first time that the setting is Sync. That way it will go both ways and if there is a conflict then you will have an option to reconcile the differences.

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

    Hope this helps
