Default renaming "Address Book - Desktop"

Please Login to Remove!

I recently removed BES due to the many restrictions I did not want to deal with on my personal device, but now when you look at the Database size the address book is named "Address Book - Desktop". Is there any way to rename this to whatever it was before BES?

Ok, looking for a way to rename the address book location xxx8221;desktopxxx8221; I found the DM simply calls it desktop. Where else would the address book be stored? I donxxx8217;t think this is a BES requirement rather a general name the BB and DM use. So if you really need to refer to it by another name it appears your out of luck.

So a device fresh out of the box would also show their address book as Desktop?

Ahh, thanks for that reply! I thought it was named that because of BES taking over my device...
