I just registered. I hope I didn't just sign up for another tour in the military though. My Italian is non-existent.

Edit: Ok, I downloaded the program and installed it, but when I click on the icon it says that the program has encountered a problem and needs to close.
Am I missing something here?

The web site for Address Book Manager seems only to offer .rar format...I am using babelfish to translate, maybe I've missed a .zip download link...anyway, I want to ask, is this available in ZIP or TAR or any of the more common formats?

Thanks, I look forward to trying the program.
Among other programs, just go get WinRar and uncompress the application.

Default IPD Address Manager wipes out Category field

*sigh* Went ahead and got unrar, uncompressed and installed...I do like the vers 1.1 Desktop Manager real well...with one big fatal (for me) problem.

I use Categories, extensively. This is way to useful a function for me to give up. IPD Address Manager doesn't allow entry/edit of this field, and in fact wipes out the contents of the field if you edit a Contact that has categories defined.

I could use IPD strictly for entry of new records, and add category after they're in the BB, but it'd be too easy to inadvertantly wipe out some of my current records' cats...

B@sher, any chance of adding this in v1.2? Or at least, making IPD non-destructive of data fields it does not recognize?

Unhappy Cannot register so won't be able to download the program?

I can't seem to get registered on the site properly to be able to download... since I can't read the webpage nor the confirmation email to know what the problem is. Please help. Thanks.

Minglam, try babelfish for translation; that got me through the site registration and download just fine. If you don't yet know babelfish, then just google for it.

There is some English explanation on the site now.

However, they want your Blackberry PIN to register on the site and get the download.

Somehow I don't see their need for that information...

It amazes me that RIM has not made this kind of software available. Most of us would rather type out our contacts on a full-size keyboard, if we could.

If you want to encourage people to move from other devices to a BB, why not make it easy for them to move their contacts over?

I thought they paid people $80K a year to think of these things?

BlackBerry is better in many ways but the Palm offers a contact manager which allows a user to edit the address book on a computer and then upload it to the Palm.

Ah, the motel from The Shinning - well, it is remote enough and odd enough to qualify - great skiing in the area!

Downloaded ABC Amber and it seems very good. One problem though: when trying to load only the edited address book to my BB, under the Advanced tab, the files selected are "greyed out" and cannot be moved across to the other window. Rather a "pane"!
