Default So Frustrated!!!

Please Login to Remove!

I installed new update on my Bold and I'm so frustrated.
1) I use to use the left convience key to lock the screen and now I dont have that option anymore in 'options'

2) for some reason......I now have over 9000 contacts!! A bunch of my contact are duplicated upwards of 100 times!!! I tried to re-sync with google, but it is not clearing out the duplicates.

Can someone help me clear out the contacts? Even if I delete them all and then reinstall google sync.

Where are the contacts duplicated, on the BB, in Google Contacts or both places?

Do you have a good back up the contacts using DM?

1. Not too sure what version OS you are using. But I believe the lock now locks out all keys except the button on the top left side of device. It doesn't lock as it did before.

2. In your phone book options make sure and check do not duplicate contacts.

I hope this helps.
