Default adding and deleting temporary address groups

Please Login to Remove!

please excuse me is this is an obvious question

I need to 'temporarily' import 150 or so contacts ( from a standard database) into my handheld for a 6 month marketing drive. After this period I will no longer need these contacts nor no longer want them in my handheld or outlook with which I am syncing .


What is the preferred way of handling this situation

thank you in advance

Michael

I would go about this way

-> import them to your outlook
-> assign them to a category (use any standard category, maybe "key customer"?)
-> you can then "filter" groups in the blackberry address book (click trackwheel, filter)
-> once the 6mth period has passed, delete all the addresses in the group (in outlook)

hope this helps

open the contact, then look for "categories" button in the corner right (in outlook 2k3)

if you view your contacts by list, you can see the Categories field
