Default Compact address book?

Please Login to Remove!

Is it necessary, and if so how, to occassionaly "compact" the address book after adding and deleting contacts?

I guess I am comparing this to defragging the hard drive of a computer; and wondered if there was a way or is it even needed with the BB.

Thanks

Open your address book. Hold down Alt and type RBLD it will organize and "defrag"

I learned a new code tonight! I tried it and it just said "organizing addresses." I didn't do anything scientific like look at database size or anything first. It took about 30 seconds and I have about 350 contacts.
