    Using/Creating Groups

    Advertisement



    I am new to this BB and have to say that I love it so far.

    I also sell phones for Verizon and have a question about creating "Groups" in the device. When using the addresss book I click the wheel and click "New Group." Once there I create a group and and try to add members. Of course it takes me back to the address book and when you highlight the contact you want to add to your group there is not option to "Add" it just looks like another way to edit the contact.

    I hope that is understandable to whoever answers this and I am sure it has been addressed before but frankly my network is running really slow here at work and it is taking forever to load a page.

    TIA

    JD

    The groups are a way to group together email addresses. So if you create a group you can add email addresses to that group, and if the contact doesnt have an email address you cant add that contact. Did I understand you correctly?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I tried using "groups" on my previous BlackBerry devices (7100 and 7130) but was never quite satisfied with the limitations.

    However, 4.2 OS on Pearl has greatly improved the groups in the Address Book.

    Groups can now be all forms of messages, not just email.

    I'm excited about this discovery!

    Re: Using/Creating Groups

    I can get the groups to work, but the groups that I have in outlook do not seem to synch with the 8100 through the BES. Any ideas on this?

    Re: Using/Creating Groups

    I have made 2 groups of contacts in my address book. My question is this: If I click on just the group name while composing an email, will all contacts be listed?

    profiles/groups

    Please advise whether and how to use 'groups' for customizing ringtones and pictures of multiple contacts. I've created groups and added contacts in, but I cannot assign a custom ringtone and picture of these selections of contacts.
    May be 'groups' are not intended for this purpose?
