    Wierdest Contact Copy problem!

    Advertisement



    Got my girlfriend a BB Pearl, 8100 Cingular brand charcoal. Anyways, we had to reload the OS and now when I try to copy her contacts from the SIM card to the blackberry itself, it just doesn't do anything.

    I go to Setup Wizard, click on Copy SIM Contacts to Address Book and it starts copying them, does the whole 100% done meter and then when you go to the address book there's nothing there. If you click on the menu and go to Sim Contacts they are all there, but they refuse to go to the phone.

    Please help! its driving me insane!

    make sure you don't have the address book filtered or accidentally typed a letter in the 'search' at the top of the screen.

    No filter, no letters, no contacts =/

    Any ideas on options? Reload the OS again? Ugh, what a pain!

    what about a selective restore? do you have a recent backup? did she have the contacts saved to the bb before the crash/reinstall of the OS?

    Ha, I swear, brute force has never let me down. I seriously just got so frustrated and spamed the copy function over and over and it worked...do. not. ask. me. why.

    I tried probably 20 times and the 20th time it worked, nothing changed....awesome phone >< Thanks for your help!
