Does the new Bold touch have this feature ala Android? This is a big issue for me.
Any response would be appreciated.
There are plenty of solutions:
BES, previous to 5.x ... in Outlook change your Contacts View to List, then highlight those that are personal and categorize them as such - I maybe wrong with the wording or exact direction but essentially you want to use BB> Contacts> Menu> Filter (Personal vs Business) to isolate between the two.
BES 5.0.x allows you to have 2 Contacts listed in Outlook to separate between Business & Personal. This way BES can isolate and categorize between the two.
Alternatively, most of your personal contacts you'd more than likely already know so I would use Option 1 first, until you're sure Option 2 is possible via BES 5.0.x
