| | Problem with Bluetooth Address Book Transfer
Please Login to Remove!
Software came pre-installed. I have not upgraded.
Just upgraded my 8300 to a AT&T 8900.
I would appreciate it if someone could please test this.
I have about 1000 contacts in my address book. My car has integrated bluetooth and it uploads the address book. However it takes a long time to load 1000 contacts.
This solution that worked fine on my 8300:
In MS Outlook I attached the contacts I use while driving to a new category called CAR.
On the phone: under the bluetooth device options, there is:
Contacts Transfer: "Selected Categories Only"
I set the Category to "CAR" (you need to use the bb button and select the category(s) from the check list)
On the 8300, ONLY the contacts attached to the "CAR" category would load.
On my new 8900, it loads all 1000 contacts, regardless of which category I select.
Any help would be most appreciated.
