Default Editing address book

Please Login to Remove!

I've just received my 7520. In advance I apologize if this has been answered elsewhere. I've searched, but to no avail.

When my MIS department transferred my address book from my old phone I eneded up with a lot of duplicates. Is there a way to access the address book to edit these and delete the dupes?

Thanks in advance.

Whoops - they are not actually duplicates, they are separate entries for the same person; one for the work phone and one for the cell phone ane sometimes one for the direct connect etc.

Dont think you can combine the information easily. You will problably have to edit each of the contacts and add their numbers manually. You did want to combine them correct?

I know of no way to combine them with short steps. You might have a better chance and cut your time down if you have your contacts synced with a desktop or laptop, then change them there and resync. other than that, no dice
