Default address book question

Please Login to Remove!

Sometimes when I add a new contact to my address book, I forget to assign it to a category (business or personal). I am then unable to retrieve the contact. However, I know the information is saved and that it's floating around somewhere in my blackberry!!! How do I go about retrieving an address book entry so that I can then categorize it? Or do I just have to enter the info all over again??? I wouldn't think that would be necessary since the info is saved somewhere on there!!! Please help me!!!!

UNcheck any filters, and ALL contacts will be present.

Yep, filters will "hide" it from you! Remember that your Blackberry has a powerful search funtion. Nothing can hide form it. You should be able to find anything and change the category to what you wish!

I only have about 570 contacts on my phone so I seldom use any filters. Contacts can be found quickly buy just typing the first few letters of the name or company name.
