Uninstall the 4.3 OS ... BlackBerry Curve forum
Uninstall the 4.3 OS from your PC, download and install the 4.2 OS, connect your device to the PC and launch DM. Should prompt you for the downgrade.

If you are seeing double entries for your contacts, you have a completely separate issue then what is being discussed.

what he did was put the company name in the last name section as well as the company name section as a workaround for his mapquest program,thus showing the double entries.

Stripes just alternates the background of each entry from white to a subtle light powder blue.You don't get that? If not, I'm not the expert, but a os reinstall would seem called for, if a battery pull didn't help.

I have to agree - the double spaced address book is absolutely ridiculous.....
Those of you who don't use it....not really sure why you are even saying something. Of course it doesn't bother you if you don't use it...
An UPGRADE should make something easier, more efficient or more pleasing to use. In this case they traded...a true upgrade would have provided the new view as an option.
To suggest that it is a fair trade for the other features is non-sense. They are completely unrelated apps...
It IS MY PHONE - I paid $400...I should be able to list my contact any way I want...suggesting I settle for it because it is not that useful to you makes zero sense. If I have to type out 5-6 letters to find a name in an address book, I have already entered/clicked more keys than it would have been just for me to memorize the phone number. Add scrolling to that ... and the "speed"/"ease" of looking up a number just became a DOWNGRADE!
The worst part about this UPGRADE...is if you happen to have a company name entered for a contact---the screen looks even worse! I have one thing to say that could clear this whole thing up.........COLUMNS.
Any idea when they r 2 fix this bug? Besides downgrade is there another workaround?

Im just gonna go ahead and bump this after a year (now own 2 of these phones downgraded to 4.2 OS) and see maybe someone figured out a way to get rid of the blank space without downgrading the OS... Miss Mayhem, I agree with you 110%, it was my reason for starting this thread in the first place.
