View Full Version : Bulk-Editing Contact Information on the 7130e

So I stupidly paid Verizon $10 (plus tax!) to transfer my contacts from my old phone to my new 7130e. Of course they completely screwed everything up and put first names as last names and vice versa, as well as mixing up mobile, work, and home labels for numbers. I'd like to edit them but doing it on the Blackberry is a little too slow and tedious for my tastes. Is there any way I can do this with a simple program? I do NOT want to sync my contacts with my Outlook. Is there any other simple app that will download all my contacts to my computer, let me edit them, then upload back to the phone?

It looks like Verizon uses something called Cellebrite but I think you need one of their devices for it to work.

Ouch! I'm sorry to say I think you're out of luck. I would at least demand a credit for the $10. They probably won't give you too much grief about it if you handle it firmly but without being rude.

While I agree that would be the best thing to do, he specifically said he did NOT want to sync with Outlook.

Thanks for the input, everyone. Doesn't look like any of my options are too appealing.
