Default Invalid Characters

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all-

I have a BB 7130e on the Sprint Network. When I try to sync the address book, it stops partway through, and gives me the message of "unable to write or update application data".

I have read many posts about first name and last name fields as well as invalid characters in the name and address field.

My question is this, can anyone tell me exactly what characters are considered "invalid"? I want to try changing them, but can't find out exactly how picky this thing is.

Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

You can find the article in the Blackberry Knowledge base - I think I posted it here several months ago - but it seems to really have more to do with the First, last, or company name thing. I've seen a couple contacts I had to fix for users that were just an email address in Outlook but usually the whole address was in the title field or all in the first name field. Good luck
