Default Address Book View Issues!! Please HELP!!

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I have the curve and have been a BB user for many years. I just got my curve and had to leave my 8830. On all my other BB units I have been able to view my address book with a view that showed me 10 or more names, and was not double spaced. Now that I have my curve, I am not able to view my address book in this manner. I can only see 5 names at a time in the list and they are double spaced.

Can anyone tell me what I can do to make this change so that I can see more names when I scroll through the address book. I have tried everything that I possibly know.

Thanks for all your help.

You can't. You've entered the land of OS 4.3, which has double-spaced address entries to allow room for the company name.

Smile, it's an improvement.

And, welcome to the BBforums.

How about putting the phone number instead of the company name?

A nice suggestion, but unless you place the phone number in its proper field (Work, Home, Mobile, etc.), you won't have that instant short menu calling shortcut when you open a contact and press menu.

Go to options>security>general and make sure if content protection is enabled that "include address book" is set to no

Welcome to the BBForums.

Also, check this FAQ for suggestions on your Smart Dialing settings...

Good luck.
