Everyone in my address book is saved under the work category is there any way I can mass convert them?

Ooh, I did the same thing but realized it half way through adding my contacts into my Address Book. If you've synchronized your BB to your computer and have the data backed up, you can change each "Work" to "Mobile". It can easily done from Microsoft Outlook. I'm not sure if you can mass convert them, but you can change each "Work" to "Mobile", which is a lot easier than retyping all the numbers.

The easiest thing I can think of to do is to setup the desktop manager software to sync (one way) to a text file, and then perform the sync once. Then edit the text file, probably just the column headings, but it may be more complicated than that. Then setup desktop manager to sync (one way, the OTHER WAY) from the text file, and re-sync.

The key is to get the data out of the Blackberry and into an easily-edited format, such as a text file.

I originally imported my contacts from a text file, since my old phones storage format wasn't directly importable. In the process I used a script to hyphenate all the phone numbers (i.e. 123-456-7890) before importing to my Blackberry. I had a little trouble getting all the fields to map correctly, but I think this problem would be lessened or non-existent with a text file created from Blackberry data in the first place.

I sync'd my address book to outlook and just edited them in there, took a little while but it was shorter than doing it in my phone

Default Synch notice

I've tried to map my various contact directories from outlook to my bb but it wont synch. I was able to synch my main contacts directory, and one other, but when i tried to synch the others, it wouldn't work. I've tried to map and synch those other directories one at a time but they dont seem to process. I've attached the notice i get from Intellisynch. Any thoughts? Is there a thread on this? Thanks.
