I removed the SIM card from my BB & put it back in my old phone. I then deleted the contacts & any associated speed dial number. So no contacts on SIM only info from service provider.
Put back in BB, re-inserted battery & fired up BB.
The speed dials (locked that came from SIM when contacts imported) have gone.
Just some speed dials from provider for calling them, but none of my contacts. I can now add/move them as per manual using remaining spaces.
