    new group in address book

    Advertisement



    i just got my BB, and i was putting numbers in the address book, i am wondering why it doesn't delete the name of the person in the main address page when i add them to a group, say family or something? so basically they show up in two places under the address book main view and in family. I want the names of those i put in a group to only show there.

    Thanks!!

    I don't see an option to hide the main list of contacts.

    While in your address book choose filter, uncheck your main list...

    That is using categories, which is similar to groups.

    Groups are just just that. It only groups them together. It's not like a file system where it will move the contact to another place. If you delete the orginal then the contact will be gone.

    I would do what cp6169 recommended. Just stick them in categories and then filter.

    Just remember, Groups on the BlackBerry are like Outlook Distribution lists. That is, just a collection of contacts that can be used as an email addressee. They are not folders or categories. And they do not contain anything but the reference to the contact list.

    Hope this helps.
