What happened to my address book - missing some contacts
I need some help. I somehow managed to do something that caused many (but not all) of my contacts to disappear.
I was thinking that it would be a great idea to have 2 phone books (multiple address books) - 1 for personal and for business. I never got set up the 2 phone books- I guess it wasnt as easy as I thought and I got to do more reading. I played with the Filters but I dont remember making any permanent changes. When I looked back at my address book, I noticed that many contacts are missing. I've tried reverse anything that I could have done but no luck.
Weird thing also that... even though I cant see a contact on my address book list, if that person calls me the caller ID still shows the information from my address book. So its like the info is still in my phone I just cant see/access it. Im going nutz... if anyone can shed some light my way I would def appreciate it.
If I can dig up the thread, someone asked this exact same question last year about the address book. If I find it, I'll post.
I've tried searching but I havent been able to find that same problem
Check to see if you have a box checked in your filter in the address book!
That would only show what you are filtering
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
frisco you were right!
In my filters I have
I thought that "Unfiled" checked off was my default setting, when really none should be checked off. I also thought that one of the filters MUST be selected and thats not the case. To un-select it you must high-light the filter and hit the menu button and "clear selection".
now to figure out how to set up "multiple address books"
