Default create new contact from existing contact

Please Login to Remove!

Is there an easy way to create a new contact from an existing contact on the Blackberry?

I was at a new client location and wanted to add all of their staffs info to my Blackberry. The address and phone numbers are the same, they just have different names and e-mail addresses. Is there a way to do this without having to key the same address and phone numbers in over and over again?

Thanks.

It would probably be easier to do that from your desktop and sync it to your BlackBerry.

Now if everyone has the same phone number, why you want the phone number in every contact anyway?

They all have the same phone number but different extensions. It just would be easier if we were able to copy an entire contact and just edit a few things.

I have never seen this on ANY cell phone or smart phone. And there's nothing on the BlackBerry that does this.
