Default Contacts Missing

Please Login to Remove!

9 out of 10 times I can google to find a solution to my problem. Not this time... Some entries aren't showing in my contact list. No rhyme or reason to it: can't figure out why they don't show, but missing most. Type in 'Dan' and it shows 3 Dans -- I actually have 6 in my Outlook contact list.

Curve 8350 with contacts that sync from Outlook. 1038 contacts in Outlook - db on device says 1038 entries (Contact List --> Options --> Default). DB size also shows 1038 entries (Options --> Status --> Database Sizes). So it looks like it is sync'ing fine.

No filters checked. Wiped address book from DM and then unit itself and re-sync'd both times. Always shows 1038 contacts in db, but same contacts are missing in address book. Doesn't seem to be related to categories - one category is assigned to 144 contacts, but 14 of those show in BB address book.

I'm dying here...

Do you have the right address book selected? They are usually connected to an email account.

Default Re: Contacts Missing

A few possible things. The first I would look for is some difference in the searched listings, extra space etc. Something is different with the listings not showing up. You can try an experiment. Add 4 new entries directly on the BB use the exact same first name but change or add something different in each for the last. If this works on a search then a careful check of the entries not showing up should be done.

This link is the only thing I found at RIM's site close to the issue.

KB17056-Contacts display message "no contacts" for BlackBerry smartphone even though entries are displayed in the Address Book Properties.

only a thought.
