Hi thanks for you reply
I'm aware that this website is not associated with RIM and I don't believe in magic. I'm just trying to ascertain if anyone else has experienced the same problem.
All the contact details, from our contact list (not bbm contacts) have appeared on each others phones this morning, so if it is a glitch then there has been a breach of privacy as I now have all the private contact details of the people on his list (and all the other associated notes/details) and vise versa without our prior consent.
The last thing we did was have a bbm conversation last night, nothing out of the ordinary. Then this morning we have an extra couple of hundred contacts each.
I just got off the phone to o2 technical dept and they have no idea and have never heard of it happening before.
dc/dc you've reminded me that my colleague and I have a shared google email account, but we set it up ages ago and never use it. I guess that must be it.
It's very odd that it just happened now months after setting it up and without a request or warning, it certainly seems like that particular service needs an improvement. A simple tick box system would be nice rather than just importing all contacts without warning, and just email addresses would do rather than all the telephone details too. I'll put it down to this and take a valuable lesson on board.
Thanks for your help.
