    delete all contacts in address book

    Advertisement



    We recently upgraded our servers from Lotus Notes to Outlook. I have a bunch of duplicate contact now. Is there a way to delete all contacts on my BB (barring a wipe) so I can resync my contacts that are not duplicate?

    Do you have a full backup of the device from before? Believe if you go into desktop manager, then go into Backup/Restore, then Advanced, you can purge the contacts from your device, then restore the contact list from your backup.

    I have a backup, but don't want that b/c it has doubles too. I can wipe the contacts from the desktop manager? I will try. Thanks

    I doubt you can purge individual contacts from the Desktop Manager. Just the entire address book.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Right, so being able to delete the whole address book on the BB is a good thing.

    So, were you able to delete it ok jd13? (then, if you just do an EA, it should push all of your contacts from the BES).
