Default Software to Edit Contacts Etc

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All

Is there any software or a programme that allows you to edit your contacts on your computer rather than on the phone.

I synched my Storm from Outlook and ended up with multiple entries as a result of a previous synch with a BB Pearl which had a really old OS and didn't accept multiple fields at the time. So it imported every entry as a seperate contact. I now have over 3000 contacts but in reality it should be about half that as there are seperate entries for the same person with their mobile, office, email, etc.

I have been trying to edit everythiing but as BB won't allow you to save a file with the same name it is very time consuming!

It is really annoying so any help would be appreciated.

Found ABC Amber which is a little clunky but way better than trying to edit on the phone!

If anyone else is looking for this

Free download ABC Amber BlackBerry Editor, edit contacts in IPD files

I might be missing something but why not just edit out the duplicates in Outlook and resync?

Outlook is the software to edit your contacts.
You can use a full monitor and keyboard, and it is much faster.

If you use Outlook to sync your BB through BB Desktop manager, does it update bookmarks also?
