hi,
you wrote it already: "Address book OPTIONS": These are not the contacts.

These are just the options u can set.
- Sort by
- Allow duplicate names
- Confirm Delete

It just means that they are restored on a new BB if you EA one with users account.

Best, Guido

BES syncs the BlackBerry Address Book with your maill server the same way it does for email and calendar. The contacts are already backed up from that point of view.

Hi all,

Thanks for reply.

Is there any way to backup Address book of BB devices wireless ? If not, then the only was to backup address book (contacts) would be through Blackberry Desktop software ?

Please guide.

Thanks again,

Sid.
