Default Address Book Formatting Questions...

Please Login to Remove!

I just switched over from a Sony Ericsson phone to the Pearl 8110 and my address book format is odd. For instance if in my Sony address book I have a friend listed as "Eric Cell" now in the BB it is listed as Cell, Eric/M.

Besides individually changing each one thru the phone is it is possible to connect the BB to my PC and edit my address book thru there. Seems like it would be much much easier. I already downloaded the BB Device Manager software 4.50 so Im ready to go..

Thanks in advance...

If you synced with outlook and the Sony Ericsson, can't you sync with the 8100. I had a Sony and the PIM functions were garbage.....swicth to BB....now happy.

Open your address book, hit menu key and select options, set sort by to 'first name' that might do what you want.

Using DM you can sync your outlook contacts with your address book if you want to do that.

Yeah..Its more of a reformatting of the actual names. I never sync'd up any of my phones with outlook before.

I was hoping that the DM or a similar program would give me more input options for the BB address book. Just a bit cumbersome reformatting each one thru the phone.
