Default need help with contacts sync on 7520

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. I need help with a contacts sync issue on my Blackberry 7520 (Nextel). I am not on enterprise, I use desktop manager to sync.

My issue is that I have multiple groups of contacts in my outlook. I have a group for clients, personal, vendors, etc. but when I go to sync all these contacts are merging into one address book on the blackberry. I would like to keep these all separate if possible. Is there a way to have multiple address books on the Blackberry? Or does anyone know of any 3rd party application that will do this?

Thank you.

it is not possible to have separate address books on your BB. There could be third party software, you might check the Aftermarket Software forum below for that. YOU CAN assign them filters (Business, Personal, create a new one) from your address book... that could work for your needs.

I think that is what I will do, thanks for the suggestion. Will that cause issues with the syncing or is this something I need to do in Outlook as well?

No, the blackberry filters are BB only, and won't sync over.
